Hello from Reading....and North Tyneside
« on: February 16, 2019, 09:12:33 »
Hello all,

I’ve just sold my Versys 650 GT and bought a new 2018 V-Strom 1000. Arrived on Monday, and I’ve only had limited chances to play as I’ve had work and am now up North of Newcastle to see my son for half term. Loving it so far though! (Both the bike and the half term!)

Matt, hello &  :welcome2:
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.

Greetings from Lincolnshire.
Unless it's got two wheels and an engine slung in the middle, I'm not interested.
