New Guy From TX

Bought a 2012 DL1000 enjoying it so far. I am an old (60 yrs) knee dragger, so this is a new direction for me. Great so far.

Welcome to the Forum. Congrats on your L2 Vee. Time for a change, from knee dragger to fire lane rider adventures? The tires look up to the task, so it is just a matter of practice. Start slow and steady. Ride safe.
