    Hello everyone.

    I am a R3T rider from Odessa, Ukraine. Been riding bikes since 2008. Proud owner of Triumph machine since April 1st, 2017.

    Used to have 3 bikes at once - VTX 1300S for everyday riding and long hauls, BMW K1200R for dangerously fast fun, and XR 250 for going fooling around off the beaten path every now and then. A friend of mine approached me with an offer for VTX, which I wasn't even thinking of selling. I said that I'd settle only for a Rocket 3. And there it was. In Kiev. Called up seller. Flew to Kiev in the morning, came back on two wheels the same day. Didn't have a single regret about switching bikes, despite the fact that I've put so much (time, passion, money) into my VTX.

    And yes. I was (and still am) so tired of BMW getting broken all the time, and the tag on any part is just astronomical. So I am selling it. Thought of buying a Honda VFR1200F as a fast and reliable substitute... This was before I got to ride the Rocket. ;)

    I've decided that I'd have R3T as the one an only road bike in my garage, and I'm thinking of getting a DRZ400 for enduro.

    I'm also a scuba diver. PADI Rescue Diver, going through tech training now. I also ride bicycles and I ski.

    I guess, that'd be enough for a first post and intro. Wonder if anyone actually reads these. :)

    Welcome from South Louisiana USA. I'm currently at work just south of Odessa Texas.
    I'm also a PADI certified diver. Not a rescue diver though. I spent most of my time underwater, hunting fish. Usually the large pelagic variety.

    Oh, so people DO read threads like this one! :D

    I don't hunt underwater. It's illegal with scuba here, and I don't like apnea diving.

    I prefer scuba, but I do have apnea when I sleep:sleep:, so it's like I'm always training for snorkeling. :D
