Proud virago owner

Discussion in 'Showcase' started by viramitch, Sep 1, 2010.

  1. SO I'm very proud to say that I am now the new owner of an 06 virago 250.
    I went into the city today to spot on motorcycles to pick it up and brought it home on our trailer..kept looking back through the car window the whole way home, itching to hurry up and get back to go for a ride.

    My first ride around the street, it was a bit of a struggle to get going and had a little trouble with the switching of gears etc. but after a couple more rides down my street and a few around the town with a friend, it's gotten a lot less nerve racking, so I think I'm getting the hang of things.

    Going to give it a little bit of a clean/polish tomorrow, can't wait to go riding for a while afterwards. :wink:

    Here it is beside my dads speedmaster

  2. Congrats!
    Have fun out there.
  3. Thanks luke, I'm sure I will!
  4. congrats bud
  5. I can understand why you're so proud of your new bike. I learnt on a Virago 250 then upgraded to a Virago 1100 (you might do the same one day). What can I say, great bikes, low centre of gravity, will go all day, will run on the smell of an oily rag, and they look good also. (you can see I love them too)
  6. Congrats,
    enjoy the ride....
  7. congrats , my first bike was a virago too :)
  8. Congrats on your Viagra! :)
    Keep it up!
  9. +1 on the congrats.
    I know a young lady who's neck snaps around each time she spots a Virago so there's definitely something about them that says "good choice". Have as much fun as the law will let you (and a little bit more when they're not looking ;) )
