FNG from NC

Just got a "new to me" 2005 DL650.

I have been riding since 1976 with multiple bikes: CB450 x 2, KZ650, GPz 550, Ex500 x 2, V65 Sabre, GPz 750, CB700, R65 and now the DL 650.

Looking to just joy ride and maybe work commute a little.

The new bike is broken in (58K miles) just like me (74 years old) so I am thinking we make a good riding team.

Welcome,

I had a 2015 DL650 for about nine years. In fact it is my avatar.

What part of NC are you in? There are several Carolinians here. I'm in Clover SC just south of Gastonia.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have been living in Chapel Hill, NC since 1991. I also have a 2005 Kawasaki EX500, but I wanted something larger after my 84 CB700SC died so I got the DL650.
