I bought a 535S and thought to find an internet 'house' to park at for help and info.
It's a bit strange in that I haven't ridden anything since I passed the test four years ago, but with health and all, I do what I can.
Should be fun!

Wobbly,
Welcome to Virago help. Attach a picture of your bike. What year is it? We have a few folks here with 535's. geezyrider is one. He's our youngest rider.

Wobbly Wider,
Yep, I own an older 1994 XV535 Virago. Ride it every chance I get. Virago Joe and others have been a big help to me even though there are not very many 535 owners on the forum. It's low profile fits my leg disadvantaged body just right. And for a 535cc motor it's got kick butt acceleration, and not a bad cruiser either.
Where you hail from?

I am stuck on 'that tiny island' to the left of France, but you might also know it as Great Britain.

Hey Wobbly,

I’ve just bought a 535 and am in the UK also (North west). It’s my first bike similar to you and I’m enjoying it so far.
