New owner of V2

Hi troopers,

I just became a new, so far happy as heck, owner of a 2014 DL1000A. Found it used at the dealership with just under 5000 miles on the clock. It came with aftermarket skid plate, pegs and Yoshi pipe. It also came with additional factory low seat that will go for sale when I get enough posts (no hurry). It came with hard cases and tank bag. It needs new tires, and right after first ride I ordered new mirrors... Probably few more details will follow.

In the past I had standard bikes, cruiser (Suzi VL1500C), big pig BMW R1150GSA, and recently FJR1300. Right now my new V2 shares the garage with DRZ400S and Boulevard M50. I make about 8k miles per year on average, commute and more.

Living the dream in Seattle metro, Bothell to be exact. Lets see how it goes with V2.

Peter
