We've had 16 new people join us so far today

I take a peek at new members every day to weed out the obvious spammers. This has been the biggest day I've ever seen.

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

The 2014's are getting a lot of press. Maybe the uninitiated are finally catching on.

Hardly anybody really gets lost. They just stop participating. I'll bet the majority of members in the list have never posted.

GW,
You may be right but this is still far and away the best forum I have found, bike specific and well sectioned. A tremendous "Brain Trust" especially for new guys like me...
Thank you.
Dave

But there will always be an element of shifting loyalties due to change of bike or lack of, was a member of a Jap cruiser forum, but no longer belong as I switched bikes. That not withstanding, this is a great forum, and without brown-nosing, you knowledge of these bikes is a contributing factor, without having an attitude of " kneel down before me, I am god!".
So thanks for that.

If I'm looking in the right place, there are nearly 35,000 members here now.

That seems like a lot, but I can believe it. Great bikes. Great forum, moderator and members.

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 44K+. Love it!

New blood is a sign of good health!

The new 2014 might not hurt, but I really think the 2012 and newer DL 650 is going to drive a lot of new owners to this site. The bike is selling better than the older model and it was a "good" seller for Suzuki.

This is a very positive forum.


Thanks greywolf for your work on this site.
