Welcome aboard! Your VX3 is identical to the first one I owned - but foolishly sold about a year later. Fast forward another couple years and I got my second one - and couldn’t be happier!I've owned close to 30 bikes dating back to the early 1970s. This is my first passion in life. As I get older I find myself gravitating towards lighter bikes. Here is a picture of my largest adv bike, a Yamaha Super Tenure 1200, in Moab UT. I rode that off-road but it was a real struggle to pick it up. The VX300 should be much easier.

BTW, I’m also an ex-Tenere owner. Two of them actually. Here’s a picture of my first one on a trip to Prudhoe Bay back in 2012. I’m on the left in the red Darien.
