Smile You ride my Harley, I ride your DL1000-Louisiana

Wanting to buy DL1000 but have never ridden one. Dealer says his insurance will not let me ride a new one. Will bring my 2000 Electra Glide 88 twin cam and trade a ride with you. Or does anyone know of a dealer who will let me try one? Thanks. [email protected]. 80 miles north of New Orleans. 65 miles east of Baton Rouge. 51 going 75.

Call around and try to find a dealer with a used one. They might let you ride that. Just be aware that any test ride I have done they make you sign a waver that in part says you are responsible for 100% of any damage. Their insurance pays nothing you cover the whole thing.

Harley/ VSTrom

Keep your Harley and buy a VsTrom too!!! I have both, don't want to get rid of my Harley (FLHS) but really like my V-Storm. You can't have too many motorcycles.. I'd be glad to talk to you about both. 52 years old

DON'T get lured into that web!!!!!!!:rolleyes: Just go buy the 650 Strom, I have yet to hear a complaint from anybody that purchased without a test ride.
As long as you aren't vertically challenged, and are an experienced rider....the 650 or 1000 is perfect 4 you. My 2 cents.

Uh oh, a 1000 guy guy telling someone to buy a 650. This might need to go in the record books.

Sure, Redou, load your bike on a trailer, pick up IndianRider and his bike, come up to St. Louis and we can do a 3-way ride split. We'll just rotate between my DL1000, and your Electraglide and the ZX-9R. Ought to be a blast!!! A really cold blast right now.....
