Hello everyone, I just purchased a new 2011 in white last week. I have owned over 30 motorcycles and currently own a GL1800 as well, the family bike. I have to say I am very impressed with everything about the bike with the exception of the stock seat. I also was interested in the Triumph 800 just can't see a 4K difference in price. I have 800 miles on her, just now getting to the fun factor...So far it's "Great."

Had mine since January 15. Went on one long trip to Big Sur and the S. Cal desert area. Had a nice look around Joshua Tree National Park where the DL650 was first introduced to the motorcycle magazines back in late 2003, I think.

Welcome!

Welcome to the club. I picked up my white 650 back in May and I love it. I am embarrassed to say that I do not have as many miles on her as other folks, but I am always excited about riding it. Work and weather have kept me away from it, but I have some big trips planned over the next couple of months. All I can say is what a great bike. The more time I spend on it the more I love it. :hurray:

Thanks guys, I am very impressed with the stock suspension. I have never had a bike that the stock suspension was satisfactory. The handling is unbelievable, I have had her over to the edge on the tires and never dragged a peg... The stock screen in the low position is perfect for me, brakes are great, bike just really holds a good line through the turns. For the money just don't believe there is a better bike on the market. The only thing I hate is the seat... The gel pad from Walmart with some NASA foam added is working well for now. Probably in the fall or winter I will send to Diamond for an upgrade.
