Default New 2nd hand V Strom 650 Northern NSW

Hi V stromers 650,

I am Graeme Gould, live up Byron Bay way and have just bought the new 2nd hand 2009 V Strom 650.

I have been cruising ebay and bikesales for a few months looking and comparing bikes. "my bike" is down at Melbourne. I will go down next week and ride it home, a 3 day trip for me....make a little holiday of it. I will ride up the Vic and NSW coast.

I am 68 years of age and presently own a Kawasaki ZR 750 a great bike taking me around Oz including Tassie....I will hang onto ZR for awhile.

I do all my own maintenance and belong to the US based ZR forum having over 5000 posts, so will like to be active here as well, in my own way.

I am looking for a centrestand if anyone has one excess to your needs.

I don't do off road intentionally, but did ride to the Birdsville races and got flooded in there, but that's another story.

A few members of our Ulysses Club Northern Rivers have V Strom 650's

I will send Pics and description of 650 after she comes home.

gg@bb ava good day

Default Welcome Graeme

Good to see another Nth NSW rider, enjoy the ride back from the deep south. If you are interested check out the thread regarding the Christmas party at my place on second weekend in December.

Happy Trails in USA have a centrestand for about $132 not sure on postage tho

Cheers

Welcome Graham. As Brett and Chef said there are a few of us around on the North Coast. I'm just up the road from you at Pottsville am also a member of the Tweed Border Ulysses. I might see you around I go down to the farmers market on Thursdays also to buy those great pot bellys pies at their pie shop. If you haven't tried one you don't know what your missing. All the best.

Default Congrats on the new bike

Enjoy your ride back, post a couple of photos showing us the new beast on your trip, once you return.

There are several of us just over the border in Qld, so we will catch up I am sure. I will be at the Urbenville Xmas camping catchup, hopefully you can make it.

Trevor

Default Hi Rabbitoh 64

I live 4kms South of Byron and go to the Byron Farmers markets occasionally, I will look for a V strom 650.

Yes I have had those Pot Belly pies, they are a real meat pie, they are baked at Yamba some 50 kms South of here.... a bit of useless trivia.

Organised to train/bus to Victoria next week to pick up Suziki

gg@bb, ava good day

Hi Graeme,
Because its a Wee you probably won't need to, but if on the off chance do you need to have access to tools etc. or even a bed for the night on the way back home, flick me a pm and would be happy to assist. I just know you're gonna enjoy the journey. Cheers...Tony (Inner West of SYD).
