I have a 2008 DL1000 which I absolutely love. I bought it for two-up long-distance and mountain touring, but my girlfriend just got her own bike so I don't need the extra cc's anymore.

Anyway, I'm toying with the idea of "downsizing" to a similar vintage DL650 so I can get better range (MPG) and ABS.

If I do, does anyone know if I can transfer my farkles over to the 650?

Here's what I have:
-GIVI monokey side and top cases
-GIVI crash bars
-GIVI windshield on adjustable brackets (madstad? ... not sure)
-Seargent Seat
-Front fork brace

Thanks!

Two great reasons right there. The ABS alone will make you a believer the first time you slam both brakes when somebody pulls out in front of you. Being able to steer while in a panic stop can save your life.

And...I stopped looking for a 1000 when my wife said she only wants to 2-up on the Ultra Classic....so I bought the bike that works best for me. Good luck on the search...took me a while to find a quality ABS bike...but well worth the wait.
