New owner in Ottawa

After a couple of unfortunate years with my GoldWing (deer) and BMW K1600 (rear-ended) I've decided to try a different direction. Took possession today of a mint 2015 650XA ABS EXP with 10,500km.
Very happy camper.

It was already dark when I got it home. Pics tomorrow, weather permitting. I'm riding in any case!

Grey Ghost ...I'd be getting some reflective tape on that beasty and some hi-Viz gear. I had a grey bike and ended up in some fog and rain at night in traffic with black rain gear and a black helmet and realized I was just about invisible.
Bought a HiViz rain jacket and hi-viz helmet.

I have a Kim jacket, good reflective tape on it. Will be adding led lights all over the back of the bike for added safety too. Reflective tape is a great idea, especially since it's available in black. I've seen police cars using it and it really pops when the lights hit it.
