Thats amazing, I am hoping to do a long ride maybe round the UK or something. (Nothing as big as what you did). Did you do it alone-did it take a lot of planning-any tip's?

Hi,

I live in the West Mids - got my 650 X in Dec but not yet run in ( I know im a pussy!) -have not seen any other V-stroms on the road , seems we are a bit of a "cult" !!

I also have a 1989 Kawasaki GPZ900r and the owners club for this has lots of ride outs and camping trips etc - seems we are a lazy bunch - just needs someone to take the lead and arrange something I guess? Like Matthew I also fancy a long trip somewhere - either around the UK (Shetland Isles) or the Nurburgring in Germany - you can go around the track on your bike there you know for a few euro's, its only about 250 miles from the Eurotunnel.

Regards

Andy B

Not English, but I live in England :)

I've just joined the wee club (and the motorcycling fraternity, for that matter). Only 200 miles in two weeks, mostly commuting. Certainly looking forward to getting out in the countryside a bit when it gets a bit warmer and dryer.

I'm based in north London.....

I rode up to Birmingham and back over the weekend, and my blase nodding to all other riders was interrupted by a bit of frantic waving to a vee-strommer stuck in traffic southbound on the M1 on Sunday.

I was getting ready for work on Thursday morning last week, and shouted Strommer out the window as a blue vee rolled past. He must have thought I was an idiot. If he'd noticed.
