Saying hi , new owner..

My name is Jim in IL.

I've got a tentative deal to buy a used 2012 DL1000, just waiting for him to get his new one.

So I thought I'd start learning about them and get to know some folks here.

I have been a rider and racer since young, (50's now) just putting together one for tour/camping/self-sufficiency.

I have other areas of expertise to offer in engineering and I'll chime in when I know the answer or can help.

Welcome Jim! I'm sure your expertise in engineering and fabrication will be a valuable asset to members on this site. I just recently joined this site, and am the proud owner of a '14 V Strom DL650A.

Welcome aboard!

Welcome Jim,
Hope you will enjoy your 1000 as much I am enjoying my Vee2. My daughter and her family live in Chicago, but I have never ridden in the State of Illinois.

Much of what I have learned about motorcycling and the Vstrom came from great people on this site. Happy to hear you have expertise in engineering and fabrication. Always helpful with the Vstrom as Vstrommers tend to be the McGivers of motorcycling - always able to come up with something!
