05 vee

If all goes well I will be the proud owner of a 2005 DL1000 tomorrow. I went to my dealer and rode it around yesterday and asked them to hold it for me. I am currently riding a Yamaha Vstar 950 and I cannot wait to get on the Vee! I was impressed with the bike from the moment I pulled out of the parking lot. I will post a pic of the bike when I get in tomorrow.

Before you put money on the table, take the Wee for a run. You might be surprised...

I bought the vee! Sorry rick, they didnt have a wee. I am very happy with my purchase. I love this bike! I used to ride a yamaha v star 950 and I traded that in for the vee. If any of you are considering a similar switch, I highly recommend it! I do a lot of highway riding and my yamaha cruiser would be running very high rpms at 75 to 80 mph and the riding position hurt my butt and back after only an hour of riding. But dont get me wrong, I liked that bike. Heck I put 15000 miles on it in a year and a half. But, I love the Vee! Cruising at 75-80 on the freeway is a not a problem for the vee. Its ergos are more comfortable for me. Its the best bike I have ridden. I know that many of you know this already lol, now I drink the cool aid

ps I posted some pictures of it in my profile.
