Hello gang new member here. Five weeks ago spur of the moment I decided to trade my 01 ZR7S for a brand new 09 Lime V! Got a decent deal OTD, and with insurance being dirt cheap I couldn't pass it up. I subscribe to a few mags (MCN being the best) and have read the reviews since the V's intro, and have always had a taste for one in the back of mind. When I saw the Candy Lime Green on the floor I couldn't resist her siren song. To cut to the chase I've got a little over 700 miles on now (1st service done), stock tires suck (I know some say not bad), and the seat is more comfy than my last Kawi! No soreness after 120 mile rides. I'm short 5'6 29 1/2" inseam, about 170 lbs. Clicked the rear suspension down to 3 and she seems to handle a little smoother. I can't flatfoot but simply lean off to one side while stopped; I've seen all the threads about lowering but think I'll keep mine stock for now. I found this community after I purchased, and have been busy reading alot of past threads soaking up useful info Anyway sorry for the lengthy intro and thanks for reading so far, you all seem like a great bunch of people and I look forward to hopefully contributing!
BTW I don't have a computer from home and browse/post using an iPhone. This webpage has a great mobile version for iPhone, however I can't find a search feature. Am I missing something?
Edit: to add actually I don't even see how to edit my profile on the mobile version of this site. Any suggestions? (I've tried going to the full site but the phone won't let me)
