Ottawa

Ottawa ON .. '06 DL650
Ottawa is a great biking city if you overlook the short season .. I live 1 Km north of the airport and can get out of city traffic into the back roads (no speed limit there you know ... ) in about 5 minutes.
The wee strom is great .. drive to work every day if it isn't raining cats and dogs.
Previous bike was a Kawasaki Ninja 500 .. it was ok, but the wee strom is much better .. much more stable at speed, much easier to negotiate city traffic, much more comfortable!

Congrats and welcome. You are close to some nice dirt roads there too. Have you tried any out yet?

Hi GT500 that was me coming out of the Bell station. I think I've passed you further south before. The top case was a give away. There seems to be quite a few of us in the Ottawa area. We will have to arange a ride some day.
