DL 650 is a great bike. I took it to the PCH 5,500 miles. Had a lot of fun. Strong engine. Top speed 115 mph on the highway. Downside lots of helmet buffetting. Will modify windshield, too cheap to upgrade.

Just bought the 2007 DL650. Previous bikes: Honda 750F ('80), Suzuki GS750 ('82), and Suzuki GSX-R750 ('86). Now, 46 and riding again, this bike really does do it all.

I commute in and out of the city (Phila., PA). If you don't have a nimble, quick, responsive motorcycle, you will eat pavement. The DL650 is that and more. Lean over way too far in the twisties, go ahead, this bike tracks like a train on a rail. And on distance trips, in 6th gear running 5k RPM @ 70mph, it's smooth as silk.

FYI: 6-foot 2-inch, 245-pound, male. Suit and tie. Mid life crises averted (big grin)

Upgrades:
-Corbin Saddle: ahhhhh
-Center stand: SW-MOTECH, nice
-Better Windshield: Givi D260ST, no more headwind
-Givi saddle bags & top bag with brake light: gotta carry stuff
