After owning 2012 DL650, in 2014 I've traded it for 2014 DL1000. With 650, riding in high cross winds was a bit of a challenge. I had bike wandering arround a lane quite a bit. Installed fork brace and it got much better, but still had to fight against a cross wind.
Now, with DL1000, the story is completely different. When I get hit by strong cross wind, I feel my body being push arround but the bike keeps going in its trajectory. Almost hard to belive. Now I have to take care of my body and its position but not about the bike anymore.
