It's Here!!!

Picked up Ugh today. My new DL650, silver. Rode it home in my 35 year old Walter Dyer leather jacket. If your old and live in the Boston area you know who he is. A bit small, but will do until my Aerostich arrives.

I can only say one thing, SWEET! I can't wait till the sun comes up. Will spend the day riding, contemplating farkle, and may remove decals etc..

The ride home was great, only about 5-6 miles but enough to evaluate it again. I think I'm in love. It may be homely but the ride is awsome. I'll say it again it's everything my R100RS was and then some. Just amazed that little motor can put out like it does. Just as smooth, man, no vibes, plenty of power.

Thanks to you all for the info. you passed on to me. Looking forward to posting and meeting some of you in the future.

Congrats on the Strom. You will love it, and grow to appreciate its style. I know I have. I wouldn't think of trading it. When I was considering bikes, I was looking at Triumphs and BMW's, and I then came upon the Strom. I made the right call. Just wish it had ABS.
