hi there stranger. i am on the west coast living in squamish just a nice ride north from vancouver. bought my wee last july. ordered a new left front signal a week later. ooops. haven^t ridden that much (3000 km ) but am enjoying it. nice riding around here with the mountains and seaside. this is my first bike in what feels like half a lifetime. first real street bike since 1978. i had a GT 750 for a year and liked it. went the way of street legal enduros for years and here i am.
i am told it will be spring here soon. can not wait. the wee is calling to me now. i am retired so i will be roaming as much as i can.
keep the shiny side up.

You will really grow to luv ur Wee. I bought mine last april and put almost 32,000km on it. Not one single problem with mine. On my 3rd back tire and 2nd front one.
Hope to put on over 40,000km this coming year, with a trip to Tuktoyuktuk and Nfld.

I am in Morden, Manitoba which is an hour south of Winnipeg.

Cheers!

Where in Canada?

I live in South-Central? Saskatchewan. 12 minutes (a bit less on the Strom) west of Moose Jaw. Moved here from Manitoba in 1981. I ride the 2005 DL1000 and love it. I put on about 16,000 km last summer. Also kept my '82 Honda CB750 Custom. Great weather here lately. I went for a half-hour ride yesterday. (January 5)

For the guy living in Squamish... In the spring you'll want to point your bike north and ride to Lilloett and then down to the old Number One. Lots of nice curves up that way. Here's my website which includes a Motorcycle link with a number of rides I've taken.

I'm living in Barrie, 1/2 hour south of some nice roads and 40 minutes north of the Handgun Capital of Canada.

Tuk and Nfld. wow, sounds like you almost live on your wee. have been to newfie land and it is fantastic ( caged of course ). years ago drove up to fairbanks and did top of the world hiway. another fantastic trip (caged again ). as a basic beginner i hope to ride to edmonton this coming summer. i did try for lilloett a week after wee arrival. stopped at a point of interest and determined gravel parking areas and signal lites don^t mix well.
sounds like you have ridden more kms in one year than all of mine. i am wondering. where do you find the time ?
