Newbie to the v-strom

Hi all, I'm a newbie to the v-strom but not v-twins, I'm hoping to pick my strom up tomorrow or Saturday, took it for a 2 hour test ride and well what can I say, lots of torque and power, mine is a 2003 so not new but age doesn't bother me, its alot comfyer than my xvs1100, I just want to pick it up and ride, ride, ride, for a tall bike very nimble on twisty roads, so a quick hello from from Cheshire in the UK 🙂 ride safe

Welcome aboard.
When not enjoying the ride, you may want to pull the cover off the counter sprocket.
Notorious for the accumulation of gunk.
Safe riding!
