Thumbs up Hello Torontonion / Canadian Riders

Hi All,

Joined few months ago to this forum, I am from Toronto (North York). After 20+ years without a bike, re-started riding in Sept. 2011 with a KLR650. After a year riding on KLR promoted myself to a 2010 V-Strom 650A.

Hope to meet some Stromtroopers in Toronto and surroundings.

Live to Ride, Ride to Live!

Hey there,

I just moved to the GTA (Oshawa) from Halifax, and just brought my bike down on a great ride through New England - let me know if you're ever looking for someone to ride with, I'm game on pretty much any sunny day.

Torontonians are all over.

Welcome to the forum.

I am in Sarasota Florida just now, but in a few days I will be in Toronto for the remainder of the spring and nearly half the summer. I was dubious about the V-Strom when I considered buying it, but took a chance, based on many recommendations.

Well, my DL-650 suits me fine. I can't keep up with V-Tom, but then I am usually not in much of a hurry. This year, I may be at more of a disadvantage than normal, because I choose to bring my 250 on the trailer. In the past I have pulled my Wee-Strom to Toronto and visited all the provinces from that base.

If you choose to ride long distances, or even if you do not, you have a fine machine, and it will likely serve you well, given half a chance.

Keith

Thats interesting. I got my DL1000 last summer after a long break from riding due to family. I live in Richmond Hill and am trying to find a vstrom group to ride with.

Welcome aboard and here you are!

I used to setup a lot of rides but life has gotten in the way of organizing rides (I still ride a lot with about 43,000 km last year ) and its getting hard to commit to any rides this season. It's nice to see that others here are arranging rides!
