New member from Houston

Just picked up a red DL1000A Friday. Decided to join for your knowledge. Did have a naked '03 SV1000 few years back but I sold it for a '09 Versys. Almost bought a Wee a few times but didn't. When I found out they were coming out with the upgraded, newer DL1000 I decided to wait and give it a try. I'm a old retired dude that has been riding since 1966 when my Dad bought me a neighbors used 1965 Honda S90. Have had at least one motorcycle in the garage every since. Anyway I've learned that if you need info on your bike the best place to go is Forum for it.

Welcome! good to hear a new 1000 is on the streets down here. I bought my 650 at the dealership you bought your 1000 at. Used to work in the heights area and know it pretty good. I am in Missouri City, stop by the shop some time and I might be able to make us a cup of coffee.
