Greetings from Bend, OR

I grew up riding motorcycles as a kid. Sold my last one when I started college in 1989. Finally got around to getting my endorsement and buying a bike. I found a great deal on a 2006 Vee and thanks to your forum and some other web searching, I pulled the trigger on it. So far, I'm having a blast on it. I look forward to learning from all you wizards here. Happy trails!

Looks like it just came off the showroom floor. Nicely equipped!

Wishing you safe travels.

Welcome to the forum. I was born a few miles from there in Prineville. I still like that area and you have some great motorcycle roads there too. I also have an 06 1000. Fun old bike for sure.

I like how you roll! Welcome from Corvallis, Mere. I spent a couple days last week riding dirt and gravel between Bend and Sisters, great fun.

BTW, if you want some hands-on instruction or a great guide, talk to Jon at Bend Motorcycle Adventures.
