New SA Rider

Hey all. New V owner in the San Antonio area here. Been lurking the forums for a while researching, but figured I oughta participate now . Bought a new '09 green yesterday, and it's a blast! It's my first street bike, but I've been riding dirtbikes for a decade or more. With the V it's a pretty easy transition!

Welcome aboard. We live in Schertz - just off I-35 - some 8 miles shy of New Braunfels. Looking forward to riding with some of the S.A. V owners.

Just as soon, that is, as we return from the Maine North Woods - round about early October. Tempeatures in the S.A. area are a wee bit too warm for me to regularly ride with all the gear I won't ride without. Guess I'm afraid I'll swell up and explode!

So, we retreat to my old family home during the summer months and then, when it starts getting cold and the snow starts falling, we beat a hasty retreat to S.A. and enjoy the tolerable riding weather.

Yeah, I know it's tough but someone should do it, yes, no?

Enjoy your Versys. Green is almost as good as red

I'm from Wyoming and have only been down here 6 months or so. The heat is killer! Put 100 miles on the V today with gear. Wasn't too bad out on the road. In town at stop lights was BRUTAL.

The straight roads were killing me too. Need to get up to the hill country, but I need some traffic experience before I take on SA.
