Glee, replacing a stolen Glee.

There's nothing I can't do, but there's a lot I won't do.
SUZI - I'm in love with her, but I'm afraid she's taking me for a ride.
SUZI - she dumped me, I was hurt, but we're both recovering now. We'll be going out together again once we're both feeling better.
We're both better now, but with heated grips, SUZI's now hot stuff!
Alas, poor SUZI [DL650 L2A 2012 - 2015 R.I.P.], I knew her well. After being dumped a second time, I must farewell her.

I'm not flighty, but SUZI II [DL650 L5A] has now stolen my heart.

It's no surprise to me that the 012 and later 650 is the most popular. I owned one and feel it's a bit smoother that the 1k. "imo"

It's better to want something you don't have than to have something you don't want.

Pat, do you think it might be time for a new updated Poll?

I still have my 2006 DL650 but don't ride it, sold the 2012 DL650, and have the 2015 DL1000 but I can't change my answers. I am sure there are a number of other riders that have changed their bikes as well. I woudl be curious how the 2014+ DL1000 is doing since its launch.

Perhaps there should be an "other" spot in there as well as there are a number of users here that have sold their Stroms and moved on to other bikes but enjoy being here (I have thought for a long time that "Strom" is more a state-of-mind that a type of bike.)

2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold

I don't know if something new would be any help. This one is wildly unsuccessful with only 871 responses.

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

I'm tracking different charging systems as stator failure seems to be one of the biggest problems reported. The breakdown is by changes in the magnetos.
