First Vee coming Saturday

Making a long story short, read a Vee review years ago. I guess 2002. They loved it and I was hooked. One Virago 1000 and Nighthawk 750 later, I finally get my DL1000 May 1. A 2006 bike from a fellow Stromtrooper. Now this had better be good as while the Nighthawk may have been as exciting as string cheese, it was cheap and a dependable little commuter with limited freeway skills. And just fast enough to evade most cars. I am not a good bike mechanic. I will research anything here before trying on the bike. I look forward to it. Have patience with me.

2018 1000XT, black. The Night's Watch. Givi engine bars, rear wheel mud guard, radiator screen. Givi V56 Litre Monokey topcase. Puig screen. Freeway Blaster horn. Speedohealer. SW Motech guards for R. brake reservoir, R. brake cylinder, exhaust pipe valve. Aprilia Tuono mirrors. GPR exhaust slip-on.
2006 DL1000, The Red Rhino. Gone for good.

Congrats. If you've been lurking around in here and reading up, you will realize that you've made the right decision. You've got yourself a cheap, dependable, commuter, tourer, adventure bike.

The bike is pretty easy to work on not to mention the fact that there is very little that breaks down on these things.

How many miles on the bike?

Should be just a bit over 9k. Good photography you got there. Real talent. Thanks.
