Hello from SW Florida

Riding since the late 70s. First ride was a Honda Z50. Since then it's been all Yamaha besides a '07 Suzuki M109R and '06 APC High Roller S Chopper.
Over the years...

'81 Seca 750
'95 Vmax
'97 Thunderace YZF1000R
'98 R1
'98 Vmax
'09 Vmax
'18 SVTC

Still riding my '09 Vmax and loving the SVTC I bought myself for Xmas.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. A Z50 was my first ride too - a brand new '75 (thanks Dad!). There are quite a few SVTC owners here so pull up a chair and make yourself at home.

Howdy. Welcome. Florida can be a good place to ride. Hoping to ride out there this year.

I was stationed at Eglin for a couple of years in the mid-70s and bought a honda 500 four cylinder. Lot of good memories and a lot of really cold grim rides at 5am in the winter.

I noticed the local yamaha shop now has 7 svtc's on the floor, up from 2. They must be selling. They certainly look good.
