I've got one already. I ride it frequently, but 3 hours each way to commute to work is probably too long.

Dodgy is an Australianism (I think). It means it doesn't work very well - seizes when bent too far for extended periods, like a one hour commute. OK, I know that's not extended, but it's enough for my knees to hurt.

Good suggestion - I really like the TDM - except that where I live, you can't get a used one for less than what a brand new DL650 costs.

Take a look at the sv1000 as well; it's a superior bike and you'll get your power wheelies.

vstrom or sv1000 then maybe



If you could get it up in first you could ride it into 2nd or 3rd.. but no way can you power wheelie an sv650 in 2nd or 3rd.
