New here, long time rider 1983 XV750

Post by BCSteve » Sun Jul 07, 2019 1:29 am

Hello from Vancouver Island, I recently bought a 1983 750 Virago. A two owner bike, three now, the fellow I bought it off had it since 1983, garage kept 27600 km’s when I got it three days ago. Been spending time going over the bike and riding on short rides to get a feel for it. Typical noisy starter, front brake a bit noisy but getting quieter. Looking forward to getting more familiar with it and reading some of the wealth of information here. So far it’s a great riding machine.😎

Welcome to the Forum. I'm just across the border in Birch Bay. My Virago XV535 fits my leg disadvantaged body just fine. Also Have a 1982 Honda Silverwing.

It’s always a nice ride out that way around the lake. We are fortunate on the island to find many roads to enjoy.
