How lucky am I?

So I'm overwhelmed at the choice of where I can express this, but I choose to express it here. I bought my beautiful 2017 KTM Duke 390 in March 2019, my 1st motorcycle... from a great bloke who'd done all the things I would have done to it... aftermarket slip on arrow exhaust, Oggy knobs [or something to that effect], bark busters, R&G tail tidy and had sat in his garage for 2 years, he'd only done 500km or so on it.... saw the bike, loved the bike, bought it.... not regretted it. I've done a good 3000km since then.
Went for a ride in the high country of Victoria.... why have I waited this long [I'm not young]? I'll post a couple of pics once I'm granted the privilege...... nice to be here and I look forward to swapping experiences and advice.

Congrats and welcome to the family. Since I got mine I have yet to wipe the smile off my face.

Welcome! I traded in a Harley Softtail for my Duke 390. Much more fun to ride than then Harley. I can actually lean it into the turns without dragging something on the bike. Puts a smile on my face every turn.

Nice score! I cant wait to start modifying mine...did a homemade tail tidy..handguards and single folding mirror. (Gonna get dual sport tires eventually....I'm in gravel road and beach areas..kind of be a little adventure bike.) I too will post pics when my count is high enough.
