I just traded my cruiser for a DL1000 and have had a blast the last week and a half getting to know it. I live in Birmingham, Alabama so alot of different kinds of riding available. Looking forward to riding on longer trip soon as opposed to daily commute. Weather has been perfect and anxious to get out and go. I have a 2006 fully loaded(I took the cases off in my pic...) found out through looking through posts that I have a water pump leak with only 13k miles on it, but will address that soon. Seems to be a great bunch of guys and gals on here, so I registered and am looking forward to the wealth of knowledge and b.s. I'll find here!!!
