I'm in love. (DL650)

Problem is, I'm already anxious to get out on a long trip, but just started a new job and won't have vacation time for some time...

Guess I posted this in the wrong place, sorry.

And yeah, a really great machine. I've never been on a bike that felt quite so good. Just disappears beneath you!
