Hello from Virginia!

Hello all from Virginia! Just passed my MSF course a week ago, and just put down some cash on my first bike yesterday a slightly used (2000 miles) 2017 Versys-X 300 in Grey with ABS.

I think this will be an ideal first motorcycle for me and I have some aspirations to ride some fire roads and light dirt so I think this is the ticket.

Happy to be here!

Welcome aboard from San Antonio, Texas. Great state Virginia. We lived in both Yorktown and Alexandria while my charming wife was in the USAF. I retired years ago and was a lowly dependent at the time. Now we're both retired but she's still the boss. Funny how that works!
