Recovering BMW Rider
Just acquired a new 2019 V-Strom XT DL650. Rode a 2000 BMW 1200LT for 12+ years. The final straw was a failure in the engine main seal.
Always loved the V-Strom from my first ride on a rental back in 2006. At the time I needed a ride for 2 up riding that was not a Goldwing.
Now, that is not a priority. Had to go back to the V-Strom. Really liked the 2016+ version. I admit I really looked hard at the BMW offerings. I found...too big, too heavy, too complicated.
Looking to fit the ride to me.
I'm 6'1"/200lbs./34 inch in-seam/retired "old guy". Currently looking at:
Cruise control/throttle control
Looking forward to any advice.
