Just checking in from Idaho

Post by dankly1 »

Hello all. Just picked up a 1-owner 2013 with 23,XXX miles on the clock about 2 weeks ago. Traded in a 2019 Africa Twin DCT. I rarely found myself in the dirt so I let it go. Been diving deep in the forums and have gotten a ton of good information already. I would post some pics there a way to just put up something from my computer that doesn't have a URL?

The bike was mostly stock but I have adding bits to make it mine.

Garauld highway pegs
Givi rear rack (V47 on the way)
Denali license plate tail/brake lights
Tech Spec tank pads
T-Rex frame and fork sliders are in the mail
Heli Bars bridge riser

My 2013 has treated me well.
There is a recall on the brake switch. I have never had an issue in 75k miles. Dealer has the part so I will get it done some day.
They are good bikes!

Welcome, you'll need to upload the pix to somewhere, then include the link in the post. But, i believe you need to have 5 posts to be considered 'live' and can do stuff like that.

Anyway, i rode through northern Idaho a few years ago, lovely country, so say the least.
