Howdy from SC
Like the title says, Howdy from South Carolina! Land of vinegar BBQ, boiled peanuts and the LuvGuv!
I've had my V for about a week, bought used after reading a lot of advice on this forum about things to look out for. After actually riding a couple hundred miles on Sunday, I've decided this is a great bike. It reminds me of my old TDM, but lighter, better handling and easier to work on. So far I've installed a 43t sprocket, which definitely helps on the highway. I just checked my frame and found no cracks, and only needed a couple of washers to shim it up. On the farkle list is a hugger, radiator guard, better seat, and a pair of Givi V35's, as my bike came with the stock PLX/Kawasaki mounts, but no bags. I look at this as an ongoing project. The bad news is my R1100RS might not be seeing as much action as it used to.
I just want to acknowledge all those who've shared their technical expertise and advice on this forum, it makes owning a V a great thing!
