new member intro

Hello All,

My name is Octave. I am an American living in Turkey.
At the age of 58 I purchased my first motorcycle - V-Strom 250

I hope to learn a lot from you all.

iyi günler,

Welcome Octave
I began riding at the age of 55.
I have learned a lot, and still much to learn.

Welcome aboard, Octave.
Ride safely.
I'm sure we would all enjoy pictures of motorcycling in Turkey.

Welcome to the forum, Octave.

How about some pics of that 250 V-Strom and your thoughts on it? It's not available here (US).
