Hello all, new member

Hi all, new to this forum. I have been bikeless for three years now. I live in SW Spain on the Atlantic and have a big national park behind me. I used to have a yamaha 250 TTR which was fine for what I do, pottering around and some off road stuff behind but it was a bit heavy for the HP. Anyway, it got pinched so I went silly and as a brit bike classic fan, bought a BSA Goldtar 500 ISDT bike (1971).I loved the look of it but we never really got on, kick starting it was like dancing with the devil. Anyway, I flogged it and have been sitting around for a couple of years looking for something to replace it with. I took the plunge and ordered a KTM 350 freeride and it is due on Saturday. Anything you chaps/chappesses can tell me to look out for ? it seems ideal for what I want but I did a double take when I saw the first service after 1 hour !!!, best regards and thanks in advance, Mike
