Hello to you all
« on: May 04, 2021, 13:27:28 »
So glad to be part of this whole V Strom movement.
My 2019 XT with under 2000 miles arrives in Aberdeenshire next Tuesday, going to be a looooong week.
Wanted one of these for so long and just about to realise my dream.
Been riding. Honda PCX for the last two years and initially thought that’s all I wanted but the “bug” bit me deep and finally, I get my first real bike exactly one week before my 67th birthday. Yep, you read that right 🤣

Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.
