New Duke owner in Toronto

Hey everybody, I am 20 years old and I just took delivery of a white 2019 390 Duke as my first bike.

Unfortunately since Iím in Canada I have to store the bike until March until the weather permits but Iím super excited so I plan on vicariously living through you guys while staring at my bike in the garage and debating on the right gear for the next few months 😂

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

2017 Duke 390

Only a motorcycle rider can understand why a dog sticks his head out of the window.

Hi Nolan. Congrats on the new Duke.
While you are waiting for riding weather to arrive you can always heat cycle your bike. Start it up in the garage and let it get to operating temperature. Shut down and let it cool overnight. Repeat this process as many times as you like.

This isnít my first rodeo, but it is the first one with real clowns...

Cheers!

Congrats for your purchase! You have made great choose! As a little older than you I must say:

Always put on your helmet and your textile jacket when riding.

Public road is not a racing track. One second's mistake can have heavy consequences for the rest of your life.
