Thumbs up New Guy on the Block

Greetings everyone from Eastern NC.

My name is Jack and I purchased a 2016 1000LT on Wednesday. Pure love so far - and farkling hasn't yet begun . I traded in a Honda ST1300 (I've owned two since 2003) on the new V. I needed to lose some weight. Still got a 2008 Vstrom and a 2009 Suzuki TU250.

I lurk more than I write, but happy to be part of the V1 club.

Cheers

Welcome! I am envious of your multi-bike garage. I spent a few years in Winston-Salem. NC is a beautiful state.

Thanks binderline, I really like the Titanium and black. But I'm not real wild about the glossy black paint on the tank. I'm thinking about painting it a flat black with a little (very little) metal flake in it. If I do it, I'll post pics so everyone can say how stupid that was...

Wow, so many welcomes.... Thanks everybody, this is going to be a good forum. I will try to give a little and not just take. If anybody runs up or down I-95 around exit 95, give me a shout and I'll by the coffee.
