Hi everyone

Hi, long time rider but new to Vstroms...Or should I say I finally went through enough bikes that I realized how cool Vstroms are and got my hands on one not even a year ago. Its a 2006 Wee in silvery blue, I came from a BMW oilhead r1100r and coming from that I don't miss anything about it, really like the smoothness of the Wee and the mild manneredness and the way you can work the engine so nicely with its large range. I'm 51 and don't really get romping on bikes much but this thing will get up and go to a degree. I found this one with 50K for a song and seems like it was serviced properly and got a manual too. I plan on keeping an eye open in the future for a low miles one because I really dig this thing and the simplicity of it, for being fuel injected and all. Very similar to the oilhead I had, no ABS or anything and all cables for clutch and throttle, and two actual round speedo and tach...I put mitas eo7's and its great on dirt roads...Cheers!
