I haven't ridden it yet, but here's the pics.

The bike got delivered right before I had to go out to a family function. I've just gotten home and was going to take it for a spin, but it's raining. It's got new wax covered tyres which I'd prefer not to scrub in on a wet road :thumbup:

Wow, a beautiful V Strom...never thought I'd say that! It really looks great.

I bet you are about to burst to go for a ride. Let us know what you think when you do, and congratulations on a great new bike.:thumbup:

That thing looks great Pneumatic. I bet you're just itching to go for a spin.
I ordered one in white, but likely wont see it here for another couple of months

Wow nice bike Pneumatic, you take better pics than those jokers in bike magazines....looks rather shmick in that colour.
I seen my first new wee-strom on the road yesterday arvo here in newcastle region in that exact same colour.
I must say though, being a bit of a traditionalist, I do prefer the original tacho-speedo set-up with the digital bit in the middle.

Tell me Pneumatic, does that new digital device tell you more stuff like average fuel consumption and average speed over a distance etc? just wondrin'

Now you'll have to do some more overtime to buy some Bling for that thing:mrgreen:

Mate, hope you get a lot of enjoyment out your new machine and hope to see it in the flsh at Bingara next year perhaps.

Cheers

Dave

Congrats Pneumatic, that looks great. As Wobbly Boot said " you take better pics than those jokers in bike magazines...." That side shot is the best example I've seen.
Hope you get some riding in soon

Warning sticker removal looks to be a lot easier than the old setup.

In Australia most shops still take them for a ride around the block as part of the PD procedure.
That's what I figured. They did that with my '07 over here in Hillbilly Heaven.

I realized her post-virginal condition when I patted her pre-warmed tailpipe before our nuptuals.

She had some 'splainin' to do.

I'm trying something different, and have had a crack at making a video review using my gopro. It's uploading to youtube now.

But here are some additional pics from today.

And I can't make it to the overnighter, my wife's giving birth this week!
