Yes the years and miles roll by. On 8/1/2006 I rode a new dl650k6 of with 3 miles on the odometer. Now she's about to roll over 75,000mi.
I don't feel like I got a lot of riding in 2011, but I had two good ones. A NC spring trip through WV, VA, TN. And a late fall trip upto Cape Breton Island, with two nights at Meat Cove. Both trips with my wife on her own Strom (nearly 20000mi on hers now).
Life is good. But I do miss those early days riding 2up in VT with the Stromtrooper gang. We need to see how many of us we can get together this year.

My 2006 DL-650 is a tad older, and has almost the mileage of yours.
It hasn't been to New England or the Maritimes since 2007,
and I believe it is time to revisit those magical lands.
I had a meal and a brief ride with two Vermont Stromtroopers in 2007,
and I am grateful for their cordial hospitality, and for showing me how to
adjust my headlights, which were mainly detecting squirrels,
because I was carrying so much cargo on the rack and pillion.
I have acquired a tiny tribute for one of you, and I shall bring it.
My summer schedule is not yet knowable, but I will get there!
I also had two rides in 2011: April to Muskoka Ontario, August to Virginia.
