Hello to all
« on: August 24, 2019, 11:47:26 »
Hello everyone,I am looking at getting my mitts on a DL650 and have found a one owner on a 15 plate with luggage and 11,000 miles,Just got to wait for the dealer to get back to me with a price/deal as will be swapping in my Bonneville.Oh I also haven't ridden one yet so got to do that before handing over the hard earned  :shock:. But from the research I have done so far they seem pretty much bullet proof.I've got 4 1/2 years to retirement and want to ride the coast of England, Wales and Scotland before I pack up working.....then the serious fun can begin.
     I'm sure I will gain a lot of insight into these great bikes from this forum and thank you all in advance for having me on here.. :grin:

Hello Skiddy,Sorry fella but don't have any pics of the Matchless as it's in bits at the moment,It's probably not what you're thinking it is....Google images will give you an idea It's Rotax powered and they only built 860 of em :)
