Hey everyone just curious,

this past August 27th (Sunday) 06, I was returning from Nelson BC to Victoria BC. Basically a 9 hr ride. I was on my Katana & ended up sharing the same stretch with a couple Vstrom 650's ( I beleive they had BC plates) who were riding together throughout the day. Their bikes were both loaded up with what looked like Happy Trails (large ) side cases. We ended up riding the same strech for some time that day, Hope Princeton Hwy through Manning Park, I lost them in Hope when I stopped for fuel. I was on the shinny red 89' Katana with soft side bags & a tank bag. That is the day I decided that a Vstrom would be my next bike. Especially after I witnessed each rider on ocasion stand up while riding to stretch ( I can't do that on my Katana, bars are too low!) I was on a 750 & the Vstroms had no problem keeping good speed whatsoever & fully loaded! It was impressive! Anyway, I know it's a long shot but I thought that they might be members of this forum. I had to check. Thanks, Tim
