Smile New guy here, hope I'm doing this right!

Hi guys, I hope I'm doing this correctly and posting in the right place. Anway, I just got my motorcycle license a few weeks ago after recently completing the Motorcycle Safety Course here in the Central Valley of California.

I got a Versys x 300 and am having a blast with her. I've only put on about 180 miles after about 2.5 weeks but hop on my bike every chance I get. I've put on the hard cases, crash bars and fog lights, a center stand, power outlet, hand guards, heated grips and regret not having gotten into riding sooner.

I'm glad to join the Versys family

Welcome aboard. Enjoy your X300, explore every unfamiliar road you find, remember you're invisible to most drivers, and ride safely.

WELCOME!

You regret not having gotten into riding sooner. Yea you should have gotten into it sooner. But better late than never. I hope you enjoy it as much as the rest of us have. And I hope your riding for many more years to come.
