New rider

Hello I just picked up an 09 650 down in Houston. I rode it all the way back to Pennsylvania over memorial weekend. It was a long, but awesome trip.

I love it. There are a few things here and there that I want to tweak, but overall I am very happy with my purchase. I am used to long rides with supermotos through the mountains, so this was a piece of cake. I will admit to some soreness nothing to bad though.

Welcome! We travelled the same general route you just completed at just about the same time. Were you able to avoid the wicked weather and traffic jams?

On our way North we witnessed three southbound traffic jams that measured as many as 11 miles long!! Fortunately, we didn't suffer anything like that, and not much bad weather.

I didn't hit any traffic jams and I was sleeping soundly in Memphis when the storm rolled through. I did get caught in some rain in central Virginia Sunday evening just had to wait it out.
