Hello There, new to the forum
« on: December 06, 2018, 13:24:24 »
Hello

I have recently bought an 08 plate V-Strom 1000 after many years riding a SV650. I have got more into touring and this is more suitable for me now. It's the ground touring model and it also has a load of other extras too! I regularly visit Wales and have made a trip to Scotland too. I live in Torquay so there is always some motorway to deal with. I usually tour with our son who has a TL1000.

I'm a keen biker and always join a forum for my current bike.

Some photos for you. (panniers removed until time to go touring).

Hello and  :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.
