Hello from Finland!

Postby Austeniitti » Tue Jul 12, 2016 11:08 am

Hey guys!

I picked up my '14 SDR about three weeks back. Been riding about 2000km on it and I've had a LOT of fun and I've not regretted once getting the Beast! Love it!

Cheers!

We've got quite a short summer here as the proper riding season starts at the beginning half of May and ends around the end of september. June, July and August being the proper good riding months as they are really warm. But a true motorist rides whenever the roads are not frozen (in between beginning of April and the halfway-end of October -ish) :)

There are plenty of twisties and nice roads to go rip. Some might even have a good, solid asphalt with no splits and cracks. It's the ground frost that cracks the road surfaces on regular basis every year. Thus, some of the roads are in terrible condition.
