The wife finally gave in!
Hey everyone -
So my 52 mile commute just got waayy better! One week into the DL650 Adventure, and loving it!
The last bike I rode was my dad's Honda CB750-4 from 1970-something. Too bad I don't have that anymore!
I started to legally ride at age 14 with a learner's permit in Iowa (ah the good ole days when that permit let me ride within eyesight of a licensed rider!). That was nearly 30 years ago. Last real riding was 20 years ago, and up until the last few months, I had been vetoed from getting one by my wife.
Finally changed her mind when the monthly gas bill started getting up towards $600!
Only 500 miles on it so far, but I'm imagining thousands, and the wife (now knowing its not a crotch rocket) has even agreed to take a few shorter trips (for now!) on it.
Look forward to lurking around here gaining more knowledge about the bike and perhaps meeting some of you all in the future.
