Back on a strom...again, in Vancouver

After a bunch of other bikes since I sold my DL1000 in 2008, I just bought a new 2014 650.

I look forward to catching up with the old Vancouver area riders again soon and meeting new ones!

I see the old "Breakfast club" has been in hibernation for a while...


Cheers,

Bryan

Out riding the Abbotsford / Mission back roads last weekend. Keeping one eye on the road and one on the tach. It's not easy to keep it under 5000 rpm for break-in period. A lovely Feb. day at 15C.

It was good feeling getting past the break in. I think that it is time to insure mine seeing all this balmy weather we are having!

Hey Bryan,

I knew you'd be back... I've still got the same silver 06 twin to your former Vee, up around 145000kms now. She's showing her age. I deliberately steered clear of the January bike show to avoid temptation.

The breakfast club has been defunct for some time. I think most of the regulars moved on. It kind of petered out and I got pretty busy with other stuff that occupies my weekends. I'm still commuting every weekday, and get a couple of off-road adventures in during the summer.

Up for breakfast and a ride some Sunday this spring. I've got some holidays coming at spring break.

I'm open to any day from March 8 to March 22, though some of those days will get booked up. I prefer the sun, but don't mind the rain.

Once Bryan picks a day, who else is in? (We used to have fairly regular Sunday morning rides based out of the lower mainland.)

Come on people, let's resurrect the Breakfast Club!
