First ride

Passed my M1 exit this past weekend, got my 2010 V-Strom 650 today. Insured and plated this afternoon and went out for an evening ride on the back roads to Uxbridge. Awesome time, love the feeling of riding the bike and can't wait for more.

Joe, there is an extra bonus available to Ontario Stromtroopers only, and you qualify.
So do I, except I live in Florida so it is difficult for me to achieve the bonus, but sometimes I do.

What's the bonus? The cordial and helpful Stromtroopers of Ontario. From time to time,
they organize rides for example, from Barrie to Muskoka via secondary roads. Occasionally
there are camping weekends or simple excursions to the Forks of the Credit or Grand Bend
or Port Perry or other interesting places in Southern Ontario.

I urge you to look for these outings, and participate if you possibly can. I have ridden with
Stromtroopers in Ontario, Vermont, Newfoundland, Texas, and British Columbia, and even
Florida. They are all tip-top companions, and they can out-corner me all day long, but they
never let me fall so far back that I am out of sight, and they sometimes stop for nourishment
and conversation.

And the whole scene is a lot of fun. I hope to see you one of these days.
Oddly enough, my Wee-Strom is in Ontario and I am in Florida, but I will rejoin it this month.

Welcome to the forum!
Keith

P.S. see the colourful marks? My Wee-Strom has carried me to ten provinces & 41 states.
And there is an Ontario Stromtrooper who has visited one state more than I have.

Thanks Keith. Already met one of the Ontario Stromtroopers...he's the one who convinced me that a Wee was the ride I needed, and pointed me to this forum. Look forward to learning on group rides.

Congrats and welcome to the forum.
Pretty soon I'll start posting some paved rides up north - here's a thread that might help you out with a few roads you may not have been on before. https://www.stromtrooper.com/canadian...rio-roads.html
Enjoy your bike!
