Just settling in

Well, I've been lurking here for a few days and I like what I see, so I thought I might join the group and participate in a few conversations.

I've been riding a VStar 650 Classic since '03 and have about 94K on that. A few weeks ago I picked up a new '18 Venture, Raspberry Metallic (can I just say "red"?), so that my wife and I can travel in comfort... and style.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself to the forum.

Thanks. I've been hanging out in the Venture/Eluder forum and wondering if there are any other Oklahoma Venture riders.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada, Daniel. From what our members are saying about their new Ventures you got yourself one helluva ride there. Must be quite a change from the 650. Love to see a pic when you get a chance!

Welcome from Columbus, OH! Glad you joined. Lots of info so snoop around and enjoy! Just a word of caution though....be prepared for sudden changes of direction by some members here....It often comes without warning...sit back and enjoy!

Welcome from East Tennessee Dan!
We just got back from our second annual rally in Waynesville NC and we had two Ďredí Ventures and a gray in attendance. Awesome bikes, however as requested pics are a must so we can see that permanent grin on your face, !

Welcome from Belton, TX! Congrats on the new VentureóIím a long-time owner myself...about 24 hrs. now. Congrats also on choosing the optimal color...metallic raspberry (red). Decreases drag and increases torque about 8%, according to my understanding. I was briefly led astray with regard to the advantages of granite and 2020 metallic blue...thankfully, I saw the light in time.
