Added a 1000 to the stable
The wife and I already had a 650 each, then we found a gorgeous
yellow 2003 DL1000 this weekend. The bike only had 20,000 miles and is honestly just like new with the factory color matched Kappa/Suzuki bags and trunk. Still getting used to the few differences in it and the 650 but I like it. It is a long-legged beast, barely put in 6th gear all the way home. Seems that you need to be running 75 or 80 (indicated) for high gear and keep the RPM at 4,000 +. The hydraulic clutch has a different feel but I'm getting used to it now.
Definitely has more power but not blown away by the difference. Nice in passing situations for sure
Looking for the best windshield now since the first generation has a very short one hitting me mid-chest. Givi D255ST and Cee Bailey 22" with NACA vent or 24" without a vent seem to be my choices.
What's the worst that can happen?
