It's good to be back, though not really for about another week. I read a bit on here about 10 years ago. I had a 2004 Rune (EB) from 2007-2020 (only owner), a gift from my wife after a 15-month Iraq deployment (Army, now retired). Here in Fort Worth, TX now, and in May 2020, a wandering driver turned left from the right lane of traffic, cutting me off with nowhere to go - I knew it would be totaled by insurance as soon as I rolled and got up off the ground. Been on a Triumph Rocket III Roadster 2020-2023. Fun ride, but I've really missed the Rune, but the price generally is going up on them (no surprise). Last week, a Vietnam vet who doesn't really need the money posted his 2004 (DB) up for $15,000, so I went to look at it, we hit it off as Army brothers, and I'm just waiting on my cashier's check from the bank to go pick it up. Wife will only let me have 1 bike at a time, and I'd already told her I was looking at selling the Rocket. The current owner had extra chrome put on, including a beautiful chrome job on the wheels, effectively turning this DB into an EB. Will take my time making my own tweaks to it. For now, just going to enjoy being back on the smoothest ride on 2 wheels that I've ever experienced.
