2015 DL650A XT first day
My new ride was delivered today.
Arrived at 10:55. Has a teleconference scheduled for 11:00. Great.
Took a few photos with the wife. Rode around the neighborhood 15 miles or so and then went to work. In the car. Didn't think I was ready for those highways and that traffic.
Came home from work. Played with the dog a bit, and then, it's time to ride. Went to the local brewery to show off to my friends. I'm not sure why most of my friends are people I've met at breweries. A nice couple told me about their vineyard 10 miles away on the curvy , scenic way home. I took that route home, past the camel dairy.
All in all, a pretty good first day with the new bike. 55 miles. A little numbness in the right hand. I see what everyone is talking about with the windscreen buffeting.
I have one, lingering regret.
That I didn't do this 15 years ago.
