Back after a decade...

Well, after 10 years since my last post, I am back. Bought a 2009 DL 650 from Copart salvage auction. See attached pictures.

Excited to be back. In the past 10 years without a Vstrom, I went back to college and finished a Mechanical Engineering degree, got married, and had our first child. Also got heavy into offroad dirt bike racing in last 6 years. Been racing Enduro and Hare Scrambles on a KTM 300 XC. So fun...

I will start a thread about buying the 2009 from Copart and the rebuild process. Only damage looks minor. Need turn signals, mirrors, bar ends, and one tank shroud if I am picky. Planning to commute and run errands on it to start. Be nice to leave the F-150 at home for around town and local trips.

That is a great find! Welcome back! Wish I had never sold my '07 ABS, but... where would I have stored it?

Great bike.
