I just want you guys to know that I love my little V. I have several bikes and I had not ridden the v in awhile. I put a couple of hundred on the V yesterday and it really made me realize what I have missed. Course having the suspension done right and a full arrow with a PC really helps things along. For the money, by far the best bike I own. I put it up there with the Aprilia Tuono. Except the V is a sleeper and I love sleeper bikes.
Ride hard, ride safe and always wave to kids,
