My name is Chris and I ride a Yamaha XVS1100. I've only been riding for about 18 months, but did almost 20,000km on my Honda VT250C before upgrading to the bigger donk on which I have already done 6,000km. I'm currently in the process of pimping my ride. I have already put on V&H pipes, Jardine forward controls and new levers (with skulls on the ends of them). Next are new grips, mirrors and perhaps a lower seat I think. I've not done that many group rides, but would definitely be interested. Longest trip I have done so far was Melbourne to Adelaide return on the Anzac weekend and I regularly do the run down the Peninsula just to get away and clear my head.
