New guy post

Hello,

I am new to the forums. I ride an 06 Strat S. Purchased pre-owned with 9800 miles. Married, over 40 and love to ride.

Over 40 what?

Congratulations on the purchase of the finest model motorcycle Yamaha has ever produced. 9800 miles? Obviously the previous owner never left his driveway

There are some posters here that you must be very careful of engaging: a character named "Bevo" something, a "Stratowart", someone who's a genuine pinko "Farmaldanzil" and our latest plague: "Aussielad".

Stick with me...you can trust me...

Oh yes: welcome

I can tell by reading other post that you are well liked and respected. Also a bit of a joker. Which fits well with me. My S is awesome. Ride and drive much superior to the 1300 Hondawg I rode prior. (Wife inherited)

Springer, I bought my 2000 1100 Custom with only 10K miles on it. I got mine with less than 1K a year!!!

Welcome to the site Steve Strat S...definitely some real characters on here!!! Enjoy the awesome ride.

Less than 1K a year? That's just about enough miles to cover the post-oil change checkrides.

But then, different riding habits for different folks. No harm, no foul, and you got a super deal. Congrats! (Thief...)
