Just bought a V!

Finally made the decision to buy a new bike that wouldn't let me down every time I wanted to ride. It's a 2011 brand new (14 miles on the odometer) right off the showroom floor. It looks great but I have to wait til Monday to license and register it and get the insurance figured out before I can ride it. But I'm really looking forward to some serious miles on this bike. Plus I'm tired of getting 12 mpg in the suburban going to and from work.

Even though you won't be able to carry a Suburban load on the V, you'll easily go at least four times as far on a gallon of go juice.

I fell in love with these bikes when they first cameout when I was 15. And the redesign just made it better plus this color is just awesome. I can't wait til it warms up and I can actually ride it.

Welcome!

Steve

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Now I have four!

grats on the new bike, I have the same year

they're immediately identifiable as 2011 models due to the color
