hello
« on: October 04, 2021, 10:46:42 »
Hello everybody, I am new to this forum and I am getting my new bike on Saturday. My first proper bike after owning a few scooters over the years I am getting a V strom 650, I am in my 50's so I suppose you could call it a bit of a mid life crisis thing but I have been promising myself this for years and finally have the funds to indulge so I took the plunge and can't wait for Saturday to arrive so I can get on my bike  :auto-dirtbike:

Welcome  bcorker. Please be careful. The VStrom isn't the quickest or heaviest bike but it is quicker and heavier than almost all scooters. Good choice of bike though. Enjoy.

Hello and  :welcome2: It's not a symptom of a midlife crisis, it's the cure.
This doesn't last forever, so do it while you can.
