New rider, old bike
« on: June 22, 2017, 22:33:05 »
Hello everyone,

I've recently passed my DAS and have been getting to grips with my bike.  I'm having a lot of fun riding her.

She's a red, 05 plate originally from Wigan and over the years someone has put a V-Strom club sticker on the front mud guard (as well as a load of other extras) so I thought it was only right I joined the group and said hello just in case any of the previous owners were still on the group.

I'm looking forward to commuting Colchester / Lincoln on her once I've changed the oil & filter.

Peace out.
