Watch out for that 4800 rpm "VIBRATION" on that DL-650... LOL.

My last bike was a 2014 Sportster, to me it's hard to tell the V-Strom's even running... at 75 MPH!

Congrats. I wish the fairy had visited me. Instead I had to go to the dealer yesterday to get mine.

Looks great!

Got to put 65 mile on it today, really fun to ride compared to the Harley Ultra. Very smooth and nimble to move around. Bike is very tall but no problem, so are the big dirt bikes. Got to get a Madstad, windshield SUCKS. Did not notice any vibration problems that many talk about but that may be that I am used to the Milwaukee vibrator. Over all I think the Harley is going to get a little lonely this year. Got a pretty good deal at Westfield Power Sports in Indy. 7095.00 out the door but I had to add 500 more for Ohio sales tax. They got a red and white one left to sell.

I haven't put 200 miles on my Harley since I got my Strom last October, and I ride 500-1000 miles per month.

Each bike has its time and place. The v-strom is sooo easy to hop on and ride. Like a KLR. My Harley sits while the V builds miles. Then, when you want a good feeling rumble ride. The Harley gets fired up.

Exactly. I love the look, feel and sound of my Harley, nothing like that rumble. But the Strom is just so much fun to ride!

That was easily remedied for me.....Increased front sprocket by 1 tooth and vibration at freeway cruising speed gone, also put the speedo right on.......All for about 20 bucks.
