    Super excited to have the opportunity to basically get my dream bike as my first motorcycle! It's a 2007 F800S with quite a few tasteful add-ons(things I would mostly likely do myself in the future anyways!). I'm planning on commuting on this since my car has way to many miles and I come from a road cycling background with racing, so I don't mind the bad weather...I already spend over 500hrs a year on a bike anyways, haha! It's also been a dream to tour with my dad across the US and now it seems like that dream is becoming a real way sooner than I would have thought! Excited to finally join the community! (I'll upload a picture with the full bag set up later) Click image for larger version.

    Welcome from Puget Sound!

    Thank you for including your location and motorycle model in your profile. Too many new members don't bother.

    I think you'll love the new bike and the experiences it opens the door to.

    No problem!

    I was pretty fortunate to find this machine, I cant wait to do my first trip on it. Hopefully I'll make my way to Seattle on it in the near future. Its on this list!

    Yes! The weather is getting more accomodating. I've been out for an hour or so a couple of times this last week.
