just wanted to say 'hi' and to introduce myself as a new 'wee' owner. I was looking for something lighter and nimbler that the BMW R100RS which I've been riding about on for 20 odd years. I test rode a DL1000, BMW F650GS (v nice but lots of dollars), another BMW which I can't remember the model of but didn't like anyway, a Honda VFR800 (not for me), a Kawasaki Versys (nice motor but didn't suit my frame) and finally a DL650. I was sold on the 650 straight away.
I've enjoyed reading all the forum messages, am REALLY enjoying the bike and looking forward to hearing from any other wee owners in New Zealand (and anywhere else of course).
Happy riding, Clive :thumbup:
