How special is the DL650?

My friends and I just came back from a road trip down to the Ironhorse, then down to Birmingham.

The Birmingham Motorcycle Museum, an incredible Authority on Motorcycles, holds the "Wee" Strom in such high regards that the urinals are reserved for Wee riders!

2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 200,000+ km, 125,000 miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Hmmm...

You know, non-Wee riders might just say "piss on that idea".

Very Special. I have a 1000 that I'll be riding back from Texas at the end of the month but found myself at the dealership today looking at a 650. In my estimation the Wee is one of the finest machines on the road today.

I wonder if anyone has a picture of his shoes. I was dropping a deuce there and a guy with a Canadian accent in the next stall tried to play footsie with me.

BTW, why do they call them urinal cakes.

They taste like....................not cake.

So would you tell your friends after playing footsie in the men's room?

That depends...........If the other party is sporting hooves, is it still considered footsie?
