Hello from NEW Englang...

Put my original post in the wrong spot I think, so putting this up in this section as well...sorry...

Hello all -

CT rider here. North East, New England, whatever...

Just today picked up my G310GS. Parting with a CBR300R - not “ergonomically friendly”, but an awesome little bike.

Looking forward to this one! Will be sharing it with my 22 year old son with one year under his belt as a rider (on the CBR).

I’ve got three others - 4 total now. One “lives” full time in VT.

Love riding a bike at it’s full potential! Also like to actually still be alive, with a valid license...so this should be a gem.

Before ya ask, here’s the list. Many will say “lots of overlap” here. Again - whatever...

Triumph Bonneville T100 for just “cruising” around town.
Honda CB500X (set up for touring and trips, hard cases, etc)
CRF250L - VT bike for the back roads, Forrest service roads, class IV roads
G310GS - I think this one will be a real Swiss Army Knife bike for me (us)!

Anyway, nice to have this forum. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum.


If you're thinking of installing something or modifying something, let us know as someone here has probably already made all of the mistakes/done the hard yards so you don't have to .


We're always happy to help out another 310er
