  1. Hi All,

    Been lurking around for a while reading all the great info on this site, especially the tips for new riders thread.

    Started off with a dirt bike after my mates finally talked me into getting one and quickly purchased a WR450 and got my L's. Unfortunately a per-existing injury shut my dirt bike riding down for a long while. So decided to sell the WR and buy a cruiser, decided on the XVS650 and love it, been on it to and from work for nearly 2 weeks and jump on it any time I can on the weekends.

    A fair bit different to get used to from the WR but love it, especially with Hines and Vance exhaust!

    Anyhoos, looking forward to reading and hopefully doing some rides if any are in my area in the future!

  2. Welcome, plenty of
    Locals in your area.
    I think your pipe is Vance & Hines ;)

    You have a few good roads around there to enjoy too. Keep an eye on the rides section, there are often rides in that area you could join.
