Vstrom 1st bike!

Got my endorsement in May '19. Starting off with my 2013 white dl650. Seemed like the best option for a capable, adult bike that I hope to keep for a while. Trying to read through and learn as much as I can here. Thanks!

Welcome aboard, and nice choice of motorcycle.
Tall bike, good field of vision, and more visible to the others out there.
Ride safe.

Thank you all so much for the warm welcomes! I'm currently trying to order a pair of those Augustus wind deflectors from user Mimo256. Anyone have an APB on this guy? His PM box is full, I tried to email him directly to no avail. I am hesitant to send him money on Paypal without hearing from him about availability first.
