Welcome to the Forum. Congrats on your L7. A good upgrade for your planned trips, if not already done so, is to invest in a skid plate and a set of crash bars / engine guard. Enjoy the adventure and ride safe.

Enjoy your balmy weather down there. Woke to 2 inches of snow yesterday %&*[email protected]#! Lots of great rides and interesting dirt in your area.

Welcome.

Just to clarify, if you're in Vancouver, you're in the SouthWest. ;-)

Welcome. Always nice to see another local showing up on the forum.

Getting some travel trips and light off road is exactly my plan as well.

I'm having an adventure- so, its an adventure bike.
I'm retiring so I can ride full time.
