Hi all!

I got my M1 last December and bought a used, salvage 2006 DL 650 from a good friend. He has kept it in fantastic condition and together we've worked on it a few times for general upkeep and regular maintenance.

He has a DL 1000, and so I've been able to help him with things like a recent valve adjustment.

I'm not very schooled in motorcycle maintenance but I am very keen on learning everything I can about being able to just keep this bike going for a LONG time.

I'm also not very experienced with forums, so I'm still getting my bearings. I like to ride around this area and the longest trip I took was with my girlfriend (who rides an SV 1000) which ended up clocking in around 1,700 miles. We went from Sacramento to SE Oregon, then diagonally NW to a lil' place called Rockaway Beach and then back to Sac.

Anyway, hope to make acquaintances and find some riding buddies who also enjoy the smooth, luxurious ride of the ever-lovely V-Strom.
