Newbie from Ireland

Hi guys,
My name is Peter and i'm from Kerry in Ireland. I bought a 2004 SV yesterday and cant wait for it to be delivered! Its going to be my first time on a v twin as i have always ridden IL4's apart from a stunning Lucky Strike RGV 250.
So, please all be ready for stupid questions which seem obvious to you all!
