New strom trooper is checking in

So after looking for new bikes and lurking here and there for last few month, I finally took a dive and got 2015 DL650A Adventure last Saturday.

After riding it home from dealership for 250mi on some nice back roads and on the slab in some wet and downright downpour, must say it is hellova nice bike!

Thanks for the replies!

Didn't wanna pull it steep slope without being able to at least tiptoe on both sides, so bike was sitting in garage for a week waiting for Soupy's links which went on it last Friday. Had 2up ride on weekend and just started using commute, need to do 1st oil change tonight.

1.5" drop in the back, 3/4" front and it feels like a chopper
