Calgarians unite

Hello!!! Just purchased my new K6 1000. Looking to meet others to ride with and share mod ideas. Is there a time when people get together and ride? Anyone wanting to ride August long? Any ideas?

Ty,

Welcome to the board and congrats on your bike.

I'm sure you'll find people to ride with you.

Remember, click that submit button once and you'll be good to go.

Thanks,

Jim

BTW - Add some information to your profile so people will know where you are and such.

Welcome tyblaney. If you ever cross the Rockies into 'biker paradise', look me up.
BTW. Did you purchase your bike from Blackfoot? I checked there last year before buying locally. I wasn't impressed with them.

Just did a quick 2800km there and back to Calgary. Went over to Blahkfoot to gander about.

Was looking at the Triumph Tiger, couldnt get a salesmans attention so I left.

Now have 49,670km on the Wee, runs as strong as the day I bought her.

Cheers!

K5Wee in Kanada (285,500 KM and still going strong)

I'm in Calgary and just did a Calgary to Jasper (on the icefields parkway!), to Vancouver and then back to Calgary. I did the Vancouver to Calgary ride in one day on my wee.

I would never buy from Blackfoot myself. I actually got the best price in the province from Turple Bros. in Red Deer. Great service too.

(It blows me away that Blackfoot charges $500 for freight and PDI and Turple charges $50)

Gents,
Just found this forum last week and this trail today, wish I had found it a couple of weeks ago.

I am heading off tomrrow for my 3rd trip to BC this year. It's going to be 7 days of riding and about 5500Km.

Blackfoot sucks for price and service, I got my Wee from GW cycles in Calgary for way less than BF and now get all my work done by Mountiain Toys in Cochrane. MT only has a week waiting list for services unlike BF's four weeks.

Will let you know how the trip went and hopefully all us Calgary boys can get together when I return.

Just got back into Cowtown last night after collecting another 5400KM.
Would be great to get a load of us out for a Strom ride.
Name the place and time and I will be there.
