Thumbs up Huntiger's intro

Hi, Versys Riders,

thanks for the info you have gathered here on this forum. I am rather new rider with a new orange V 650. I did not ride since the high school, so after almost 30 years I am relearning the tricks of the trade. Since last year I managed to collect 12k km, so the feeling of confident riding is back and I like it. I also like improving anything, including my ride. I hope to share some experiences and get some good ideas from you.

Wishing you rubber-trees

Huntiger

welcome from Texas, USA. Good looking ride! And I notice that it attracts horses.

Just curious as to what this means: "Wishing you rubber-trees"

My guess - something soft and bouncy to crash into.

Yes, that's a local riders' greeting and it means exactly as you understood it! Along the twisty roads no trees should be hit, and in the worse case at least the trees should be made of rubber so nobody gets hurt.
