New rider here.

Bought the '16 V650 on 19 December, put 1151 on it so far, literally took that picture just before posting this. I haven't done anything to the bike besides already drop it once, so looking for crash bars as the next purchase. Anyway I'm in Austin TX and I go to UT out here. Here's my introduction, hoping to learn some things.

Dropping it a few times at low speed is part of you putting some provenance on it.

My V was my first bike (in 2009). I have added 50,000 kms / 30,000 miles since then.

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.
