Hi all

I picked up my new leftover 17 650 two days ago. First time I rode one was home from the dealership. I did a lot of research before I decided it would be the best choice for me. I am retired and have been riding since 1970.
Looking forward to finally getting to ride on the Crud run in a few weeks!
