Another Newby
« on: October 10, 2019, 08:59:56 »
Hello from Oxfordshire.
From a new rider with a new V Strom 650.
Done less than 100 miles, but loving the thought of so many trips.
125’s are great, but this bike is exceptional.

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.
Because .........
Nothing travels faster than the speed of time.
