new here

Hi guys,
I'm new to this forum & the vstrom. Looking forward to meeting & riding with you guys. I bought an 05 650 last month with 12k miles on the clock, new chain, upgraded suspension, ...I've had it partially torn down for the past month while I install a whole lot of stuff. Mostly electrical things at this point. I started with happy trails crash bars & skid plate, fork brace, rebuilding the seat with some gel & memory foam, ...it had givi bags when I got it. I hope to have it back on the road by the end of this holiday weekend so I can resume commuting on it. I live in Orem and work in Taylorsville. My last bike is an 83 Yamaha venture that I did a frame up rebuild on a couple years ago : put a LOT of miles on that bike. The problem is I put a high mileage 86 1300 engine in it that crapped out on me. I'm tired of doing the big repair jobs, carbs, and old ignition technology.

I need to figure out how to post a pic with my phone.

Thanks
I went to your link & introduced myself to the whole forum like you suggested - been meaning to do that. I've been lurking & exploring the forum for the past month. I've picked up several farkle ideas and printed several threads with tips on some of the things I'm doing to mine; this is a great forum.
Doug

U-tards unite.

Gentleman and ladies we need to set a day and time in the spring for a meet and greet.
For dinner or lunch or for a ride. A dinner may be easier for more to attend.
Iíve been around for a year now and only met a hand full of you. I would like to meet more of you this year so we can explore the back roads to gather.
I ride almost every week end and more (20g this year). Itís nice to share the roads with someone you know. As much as I ride itís hard to get one or two people to go with you all the time.
After a 13hr 771mile ride by myself I found that I should have had some one with me or at least a tracker. In case of an unfortunate accident, help is a lot faster if you have a friend with you.
What do you think?
