Hello from Lake Elmo, Mn

Hi All,
Just purchased a 2019 650XT Touring. The weather has not been very cooperative this spring for riding but, got 70 miles on. Previously had a 2014 Honda CB500x (traded in). I have been checking out some of the threads and seen the one on lowering. I just installed the lowering links (1 1/8") from Adventure Tech. Went on easily. Sits much better for me. Got close to a foot of snow this week so have not had a chance to drive yet with lowered. Look forward to being part of the forum. Jerry

Welcome aboard, I was interested in a CB500X but found a good deal on a Vstrom first.
