Hey what's up, long time lurker first time poster. Used to race motos back in the day, now it's mostly street stuff.
I just came off an 01 BMW r1150gs and on to a gifted from my bro in law vstrom 1000.

I just want to say thanks already for the help this forum has provided. Great community. Bikes pretty setup for me just a few cleaning things to be done like the from sprocket forsure. I'm coming off a shaft drive bike so this chain thing is taking me back to my track days.

I'm enjoying this vstrom more then the 1150 and my passenger thinks is more comfortable.
That vtwin pulls hard!!!

Take it easy

They really are fun bikes. Mine is similar, just two years older. I love the old thing. Enjoy your new ride.

Hola, Hugo.
I agree with the difference from the BMW to Strom.

Welcome to the Forum, Paul. Congrats on your K8 Vee. I recommend investing in a chain oiler.
