New guy here!

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I just purchased a new 08 650L about 2 weeks ago. I have a long and colorfull history with dual sport bikes. my first was an old Kawasaki ke175, ( started riding in 1979 ). But didn't get my first true taste of a REAL dual sport until 83, that's when I bought a new XL600R:thumbsup: That was by far the most fun bike I ever had! More recently, I just traded in an 05 Triumph Tiger 955i. Yes some may say I traded down:crazy: But I did it because I wanted to regain REAL off road ability, ( plus I can actually pick this bike up all by myself if I lay it over!! ) I feel like I am going to fall in love with this big pig, as you all call them. ( It's NO pig being 200 pounds lighter than my Tiger! ) I hope to contribute to this forum, as well as have some fun too:busted:

Thank's for the welcomes!

I have lurked on here for awhile, and have digested much info from all the posts. Although I have a pretty ridged mindset about the proper care of a machine. I am no stranger to the flame wars, and different opinions. Plus I ALWAYS ware my flame suit!!!
