A New Owner in Northern Virginia

Greetings everyone. I just bought Hooligan's V that he had posted in the Classifieds. The deal was consummated around Thanksgiving, but it took the shipping company until Christmas Eve to deliver the bike. (Not a bad Christmas present, huh?) I've had it out twice over the past couple of days and it's a lot of fun. I'm 45, but have been riding for only 3 years. My first bike was a Ninja 500. I really enjoyed that one, but it's nice to move into the 21st century with the V. Unfortunately, during my first outing the other day, I lowsided in a very tight, slow turn. The pavement was wet, and although I was going nice and slow, down I went. Other than my pride, I was unhurt. The V suffered a bent brake pedal and some scrapes on the plastic. Other than that it's ok. Anyway, I plan to quickly replace the scraped-up parts and pedal, buy some new tires, and get on with really enjoying the bike.
