500 miles locally to get in run in then a 3,500 mile trip to Czech Republic.

A bit of daily commuting here (5 miles a day) then Timbuktu and back.........

I am busy planning this summer's riding and expect to be up to 25,000 to 30,000 miles by the time the bike is 12 months old

Thats amazing, I am hoping to do a long ride maybe round the UK or something. (Nothing as big as what you did). Did you do it alone-did it take a lot of planning-any tip's?

Hi,

I live in the West Mids - got my 650 X in Dec but not yet run in ( I know im a pussy!) -have not seen any other V-stroms on the road , seems we are a bit of a "cult" !!

I also have a 1989 Kawasaki GPZ900r and the owners club for this has lots of ride outs and camping trips etc - seems we are a lazy bunch - just needs someone to take the lead and arrange something I guess? Like Matthew I also fancy a long trip somewhere - either around the UK (Shetland Isles) or the Nurburgring in Germany - you can go around the track on your bike there you know for a few euro's, its only about 250 miles from the Eurotunnel.

Regards

Andy B
