Newbie from South Africa

Hi Guys,

Another newbie from South Africa - I have owned my V (Black-2008 model) since December. It is pre-owned but only had 400km on the clock !!! (previous owner sold owing to it being too big for him). I commute to work every day on the bike - spending 3 hours a day in the traffic in a cage was killing me, and was cutting into time to spend with the family.

I did plenty of homework prior to buying, and the V has matched up to all my expectations. IMO it is still the best looking mid-size bike on the market.

Looking forward to adding value to the forum.

Ride safe,

Welcome Taffy,

Its alwas good to see another South African joining up, all be it from different sides of the world!

Congrts on your Versys, i strongly agree with your comments, except i think the ZX636R is probably the best looking mid-sized ( Sports ) bike on the market...hehe

Keep well

Welcome aboard.

I'm not South African, but I do cheer on the Springboks from time to time. I'll be watching them during the Lions tour later this year.

Glad to hear you shout for the right team !!!! We have an American playing for the Lions in the Super 14 - Todd Clever. He has made a good impact after only a couple of games with his direct, aggresive approach.

The Lions tour will be good - they always are !!!
