V Strom 1000DL 2008

Hi All,
Proud owner of a old but new to me DL1000 2008, Great bike and loving it. In Ireland we have to register for VRT, this is a tax the Gov put on when importing bikes from the UK.
my main question is where to find the VIN number on this bike? There's a sticker for sure but is this not embossed or stamped on the frame somewhere?
I need to point this out when I get the VRT done.
Thanks if you can help.

Cheers all that have welcomed me in the above posts, finding this site a brilliant resource for all the questions I have and will yet ask. Nice bunch on here too say again thanks for the welcome.
Loving the VStrom 1000, step up from a Vulcan s650 (literally a step up) took me awhile to balance with two feet unlike the vulcan where I was like sitting on it like it was a Lazy boy chair
