Hello BARF from Solano!

Hello everyone, I am new to B.A.R.F. and to US in general, I am Matt, lived abroad for 27 years and 6y ago I moved to California.

I have ridden a bunch of different things in my youth, mostly 50cc mopeds and racey 125cc 2 strokes (does anyone know the Aprilia RS or Cagiva Mito? )

I started riding again a few years ago, thought California is a good place to start again, then stumbled upon BARF and here we are

Got myself a Kawasaki Versys 650 and hoping to add something else soon

Northern Italy mostly, I hated the weather but damn I miss the Alps and how everything was closer (geographically speaking).
