Finally got my new bike

I've been waiting since September to get a new DL650 and, just a few weeks ago, I finally got it! I picked up my matte black 650 and I love it! I've got around 190 miles on the bike so far and I can't wait till the break-in period is over. I already ordered a center stand and some OEM hand guards, which I need to go pick up at the dealership. Of course, the weather hasn't cooperated much since I picked it up, but I've been riding every chance I get. I will keep an eye out for everyone else when I'm out.

The OEM handguards help a little with the wind.......key word.....a little. Get a good pair of winter gloves too for cold weather riding.

Enjoy the new ride. And as usual this thread is useless without pictures!:mrgreen:

Yeah, I need some better fitting winter gloves. I have some tour masters, but they are too stiff and tight to the point that I don't get good circulation which let's my hands get as cold as they would with my summer gloves.

I'm going to get some pics this weekend. I already got it a little dirty, so I need to wash it beforehand.

Well, I finally got some pics of my new strom last week. These aren't the best quality, so I'll try to get some better ones soon.
