Red face Hello Everyone

Hello everyone>

I am Elugino VegaCasiano but please call me Gino. I am originally for Puerto Rico but currently living in Fayetteville , NC. I am a military officer stationed in Fort Bragg, NC and I will retiring soon ( nine months) I just bough my retiring gift, a brand new 2018 Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. This is my second bike. My 1st bike was a Suzuki GS 500. I was forced to sell it ( with two spare parts bikes) in 2005 after coming of a deployment...Looking forward to meet all of you and learn from everyone's experiences w this bike.

WELCOME:

My retirement gift from me to me was a 2013 versys 650.
Isn't it nice when you get a retirement gift, and it's exactly what you wanted. Even the color you wanted.

Awesome!!!!
We spend time giving and supporting others ( Wife, kids, parents, sisters) that sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves. I've been wanting to get me a bike since the day I sold my old GS500 in 2005. Now the time is right. Specially after my daughter Carina ( God Bless her) got a 4 year FULL ROTC scholarship at University of San Francisco. ( Everything covered- tuition, room and board, meal and transportation)
