Hello from Vantaa, Finland
« on: September 22, 2019, 22:43:21 »
Hi everyone.

My name is Tomi and i'm 38 year old chap.
I'm quite green motorist myself, got my license last spring and decided to start with "small and easy entrylevel bike" so I got myself Varadero XL1000, SD02, year 2005 ;)

Loving the bike and as I am not the smallest bloke around I have had no problems with the size or weight of it.

My first summer has mostly been commuting, driving shorter trips and getting used to biking in general + finding suitable accessories which work for me. Next summer will be different and I have been planning several longer trips, might even attend VIM if everything clicks.

See you on the road and nice to be here.

welcome to the family, the Varadero is surely not the easier bike to begin, but surely everybody here can say it is a fantastic bike  VCIF_ThumbUp
Happy if we can meet at next VIM ; it is a nice trip we've done this spring (from south France) .
