Just thought I'd say hi. Just picked up a '11 DL650 this spring, after more than 35 years on bikes. Looking forward to getting back to doing some touring.

I had a V65 Sabre for 20 years and rode it throughout the lower 48 of the US and across Canada. Gave it up for a Gold Wing to please the (former) other half, but never enjoyed the heavy handling, although it was comfortable! A few years ago, I was bit by the sportbike bug and went down that path. I still do track days, but have been missing the simple joy of touring. And you can't do 600 or more miles a day for a week on a sportbike (at least not at this stage of my life!).

Still finishing the break-in on the Vstrom, but so far I'm enjoying it.
