Welcome aboard!

What part of Ontario are you from? Kenora? Timmins? Windsor? Cornwall? (It's a big place! :) )

I have only sat on a new V-Strom 1000 and really would love to ride one some day! Of course I know when it does it will totally destroy me!

I ride though (on 407) or around Markham pretty much every day... if you see a Black 2012 DL650 with a Topcase and tank bag - probably dirty - that's likely me!

BTW great group of guys over in Milton! I am technically a member but since they have their events on Saturday (and I work most Saturdays) there is little chance of ever connecting with them.)

I look forward to seeing you on the road some time!

..Tom

My mom lives in Wilberforce. I'm in that general area fairly often. My wife and I were not far from there this past Sunday as we went over to highway 41 and then took 506 east. What lake are you on?

I'm headed up to Lanark on Sat or Sun this weekend depending on the weather for lunch on my 2102 Wee. Meeting a couple Connie riders there for lunch. Anyone here want to join in?

awesome! I'd be up for a ride sometime in September!

We wound up camping in algonquin park, was gone from the house for exactly 24hrs and did 1000km. Fantastic roads that I found on the ride the highlands website!

Spotted an orange vstrom 650 in Marmora this afternoon... had knobby tires on it! Would this be any of you guys rolling around today?

Hey y'all,

I just recently got a 2011 DL650ABS and planning on riding south with a bunch of "snow birds" (Fla.)
Maybe do a trip down to Mexico and Costa Rica, too.

I'm just about to add some farkles to the ever-growing list and currently in the market for crash bars that can hold my crash bar bags nicely. Therefore I'm looking for something that has a nice long bar running across the top as opposed to something roundish.
Do anyone of you have any experience regarding this problem?
Cheers!
