New street rider
I've never ridden a street bike. Never even seen a vstrom in person. But I own one. I bought a 2012 dl650 with 6k miles. Its waiting for me at my sisters house in california. I live in hawaii, where motorcycles dont tour. They just dodge cars and try to stay alive. I've ridden dirt bikes 30plus years. So naturally I ordered a skidplate, crash bars, fork brace. And a crap load of other stuff. I'll be turning wrenches for half my vacation. Seems like a fun bike to get into street riding. I plan on riding to alaska next summer.
