Cool Hey

I haven't been riding in 16 years. Started with an '82 yamaha 650 maxim (my 19yo son now rides as his learning bike). Then went on to a Yamaha "97 yzf600R. Just bought myself a 2002 DL1000, never rode anything quite this size but can't wait to get it registered and on the road. I live in Western MA. Glad to be a part of this community.

Welcome, Ario. There's a wealth of information on your new bike here, and occasionally some good-natured bantering as well.
