She's home, she's home...at last

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Mick M, Jan 29, 2016.

  1. Picked up my new baby today.:happy:
    2007 V-Strom 650 ABS

    The 'Welcome Home' ritual begins early tomorrow, with a top-to-toe wash, adjustment of controls, chain clean and a naming ceremony. Then a gentle cruise with my daughter, who's almost as excited as me, about the new addition to the clan.

    I've asked my family for name suggestions, although just b/ween you and me, I've already picked one and I'm non-negotiable.

    Once the sun is out there will be photos and then a new showcase item. My first, to be exact.
    Stay tuned, folks...:whistle::whistle::whistle:

  15. I used to own a V-Strom, and she was called Betty Barge-Arse (because, with the Givi panniers on, she wasn't a pretty sight from behind!).
    In spite of her looks, she was a great bike though. Congratulations on your choice!

  19. Congratulations to the new acquisition, I hope you have lots of fun with it. It has been a long time since I had a little one riding pillion, does anyone know what the legal minimum age is? I hope I will still be riding when my grandchildren are old enough :rolleyes:
  20. fruechtelfruechtel There's different laws for different states but in NSW a pillion passenger must be at least 8 years old...
