New to ADV and loving it so far
« on: July 08, 2018, 05:42:52 pm »
Hey -

Mark B. here entering the world of ADV after a long line of sport tourers:  CBR1000F, VFR800, K1200RS & GT, ZZR1200, etc.  I borrowed a friend's '15 Super T and that was it!  The bike infected me like a virus.  Found a '16 that was well-accessorized and taken care of.  So far I'm really enjoying the leg room, sweet sound of the twin (through a Yoshi exhaust), and agility of the bike. 

Looking forward to gleaning some ADV wisdom from you all on this site.....

Happy Sunday to you all!
Mark

Here's a welcome from Lodi. Be careful, this virus can get expensive. Dodads and fuel, it never ends. ::26::

couldn't agree more - I'm already broke and just got mine a week ago (the bookmark page is quite long now).

nice to see you ran with a VFR - still holding onto mine for my cous who's over seas - nothing like the sound and feel of a V-4. Although, I'd still take a 919 over the viffer, but both are fantastic bikes for what they're made for.

Again - welcome!

congrats on your new ride, markbraz, with a simple hello.....

 ::026:: on the VFR. I had a ‘95 VFR 750 years ago that I loved. Great bike.

For me it was going to be this bike or the FJR1300. Glad I went with this. But still wonder about an FJR.....

Not as comfortable, but the engine will make you giggle and swear that light is starting to bend.  >:D

and then there’s the GS, the Triumph Explorer, the Honda VFR1200X, and the Dodge Challenger I wonder about, too.

If i had enough money i wouldnt have the time for all of the toys i would want to buy.
