Obligatory Hello Message
« on: August 12, 2019, 00:49:02 »
Hello V-Strom club people. Matt from Manchester here. I'm currently not a DL owner - Suzuki Gixer 600 SRAD is my current machine, fun bike but not great for the week long tours me and the lads (mostly GS/Tiger/TDM owners) are planning on for future ride outs. After some research into touring bikes, I've landed on the DL650 as my ideal match and so thought this would be a good place to start for advice, information and potentially a purchase if one in my limited budget happens to surface. I'm sure you all look forward to the ensuing newbie questions as much as I look forward to the "repost of this thread from 6 years ago" answers... :lala: hopefully I don't make too many annoying mistakes

Hello and  :welcome2: Matt
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

Nothing travels faster than the speed of time.
