New from Durham, England

Hi joined the site a couple of weeks ago but just took delivery of my V (Burnt Orange)yesterday,went for a quick spin this morning (absolutely pi**ing down)but loved it.What a difference from the bike I P/Xed a Kawasaki GT550 shaftdrive,the V actually goes round corners and has brakes, which is a huge bonus and I just love the upright riding position.Hoping it,s drier tomorrow so I can scrub the new tyre in . PS loving the site .Dave

Glad you like it, mine got delivered on Friday, but i`ve not been out on it yet ( yes the weather is cr*p)
I imagine it is worlds apart from your old 550.

Was hoping to have a blast up to Hartside tomorrow but forecast says heavy winds so just play it by ear.The 550 was a good bike but the lack of technology just caught up with it.A friend of yours ,Alan I think from Crammlington(Suzuki Busa) dropped it off,so I might see one of you,s knocking about when i,m up that way.

Yes, I know Alan, we used to ride together years ago, he dropped my bike off on Friday.
My bike will be laid up for 3 weeks as i`m off to Moscow tonight, well at 3 in the morning!
Enjoy, and ride safe!
