Hello Everyone, a useful forum you guys have got here. Helped greatly with my decision in getting my XVS650. I had to have it once I got my L's. It's 2010 model in red with just under 3k on the odo. Got it from Yamaha City, guys were very helpful, would go there again. I turn 40 this year so this is my mini mid-life crisis I'm having. For those who are wondering what's with the name bigjugs, sorry to dissappoint here. This is a short version of my real name and I do love big jugs ;00) (hope the mods let me publish this) okay back to the bike, I have had it for about 2 weeks now and done about 300 odd kays, riding around Emerald, Gembrook, Launching Place, Yarra Junction and back to home. The cruiser was my choice as I didn't want something too fast initially as I haven't been on a bike for 15+ years and that was overseas not in Ozland. The 3rd gear is the odd one for me, the rest gear ratios seem to work fine with me. Enough get up to be competitive on the freeway. Is it ok to get the engine oil changed now or shall I wait for the 10k service which may take some time. What does a simple oil and filter change cost on a bike like this? I need some more ride days behind me to get comfortable with my bike and the road conditions. I'm aiming to get my full bike licence once 3 months have passed. I got my L's from HART in Kilsyth, the guys over there were very helpful too. They gave good survival riding tips, will highly recommend them. I did rode off onto the grass on my 2nd lap LOL. Hope to catch some of you riding around the weekends in Melbourne. Safe Riding.
