2004 - 2009 = K4 - K9
2010 - 2019 = L0 - L9
2020 - 2029 = M0 - M9

and so on. Each successive decade gets the next letter of the alphabet plus the fourth number of the model year. You have an L1.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

A friend had an aunt Gladys, His Dad called her Aunt Happy Bottom or Aunt Glad Ass.
That's almost close to a Gladius. Maybe they improved the seat?
