Saweet supermoto! I'd like a new Husky TE 511 to complement my DL, or a KTM 530 EXC.

You live in an apartment? Why aren't the bikes in the living room or kitchen??? That's where they go when you are young.

2012 Suzuki DL650AL2, over 45k miles already!

I bought the same model two weeks ago. Love it. I have 500 miles on it. Now I can rev it to 7500 rpms. Already added center stand, front engine cowling, acc. socket and GPS mount. Still plan to get a tank bag.

Welcome to club from another Hampton Roader. I see the ADV sticker on your truck, maybe I'll see you around over there as well.

Did you get it from Cycle City? I worked with Hank there and he was great to deal with.
