New 650LT in Anchorage!

Hi gang!

I just brought home a new 2015 650LT in white. Her name will be Pearl.

Anyway, I've been intrigued by these bikes since they first came out, just never did pull the trigger on one, until today. I've had lots of bikes, XT Yamahas, V-Strom, etc. I'll be consolidating my collection a bit by selling an FJR and a WR250.

I did a quick 25 mile jaunt around the hills, and so far, I'm happy with it. It seems to live up to all the stuff that been written about it.

Think you'll be liking it. Wicked good handling out of the box.

I spent most of my money on bikes, booze and broads. The rest I wasted.

I'd like to have a bad day, just to see what it feels like.
