Hello from Guadalajara Mexico

A very nice community you all have here

I'm a very new rider, currently own my first bike, a Yamaha mt-03, I joined this forum because I will be picking up a used 2019 650 xt, likely next weekend.

My brother also owns a 650xt, and I have used it a few times, whenever I ride my brother's bike I find it amazing that the vstrom is in many ways easier to ride than the little mt03, obviously way more comfortable.

I'm looking forward to participate in the forum

Here is a mobile photo of the bike I'm getting, slightly less than 6000 kms

Cheers
