New forum member from Maryland

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to introduce myself as a new forum member from north-eastern Maryland. I have had my 2016 V-Strom since new and have been riding various motorcycles since the 80ís. The V-Strom is my favorite so far and I ride as often as I can.

I have already been taking advantage of all of the excellent advice from the forum, such as an upgraded windscreen and have added a few other items based upon feedback on different posts. Figured it was time to stop lurking and get more involved.

Looking forward to talking more and maybe even riding with you in the future.

Thanks!

Hola, finally came out of the anonymity! There certainly a lot of nifty fixer upper ideas on the forum. So how big is your tool....tube?
If you get a chance to join any of the Eastern gatherings, do so, meeting the fellow members is a good thing.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. Looking forward to talking more.

I ride mostly in the north-eastern Maryland / south-eastern Pennsylvania area so happy to connect for a ride if anyone is ever interested. Have been thinking of heading down to the Eastern meet up - maybe next year!

If you haven't ridden the western part of your own state, you're sure missing out! Western MD, where WV, MD, and PA meet, is some beautiful riding. If you ever want to come explore this area, and want a base of operations to stay, let me know. I live in Great Cacapon, WV, just outside of Berkeley Springs, WV. It's not luxury living, but it's better than sleeping in a tent.

Thanks for the invite! I really like that whole WV, western-MD, PA area, just haven't had a chance to ride there yet. Really appreciate the offer and will let you know if I can make a trip sometime soon.

Granted, we're a hike from Ottawa. But I'll extend the same invitation to you. If you want to come explore this area, you're welcome to use my place as a basecamp. There's both tent space for the hardy, and spare bedroom for the comfort lovers. No tulip festival though. But we do have a C&O Canal, so you won't feel totally alien!
