Hi everyone. Just a quick intro from a V-Strom newbie in BRisbane Australia.

I've had sports bikes all my life, but finding now that I don't need to go as quick that I am preferring a more upright seating position and longer suspension. I love to get away for long country rides and given the current state of Australian roads, the V-Strom is a better choice than my previous Honda Super Blackbird.

For Christmas I got my wife a Gladius 650 which shares the wee-strom engine and I must say that motorcycle impresses me. So yesterday I took the plunge and traded the Blackbird on a 2011 DL1000 with 5Ks on the clock.

The guys in the CBRXX forum have been fantastic in supporting each other, I'm guessing you guys will be the same.

Cheers, Keith

Hi from CW NSW, and welcome! :thumbup:

These guys love photos, of your bike and the places you've been. Don't be shy with any questions you have, either.
