Just curious as to why there is such a lack of posting from my fellow Vstrom riders I see around here?
Is it because your shy?
Not interested in sharing thoughts and idea's?
Too busy riding?
Im curious :rolleyes::confused:

Just trying to draw out any lurkers...I dont have enough riding buddies :p

Hook up for a ride sometime

Although I currently live in Burnaby, I do have a place in OK Falls where I plan to retire in about 2 years. I'm up there on a regular basis (not always with the Strom). I'll probably be there for all of the first 3 weeks of August. If you OK Strommers are planning a ride, I'd love to join you. Particularly if there is some low-skill off road riding.

I was in Summerland,Penticton,Ok falls and half way to Keremeos then back to Kelowna last week for some riding pleasure..love it there so much less traffic then Kelowna.I like going anywhere away from our traffic mess :rolleyes:
I do westside road all the time..its a hoot :p
Im still off work (heart attack :() and just got the first service done on the Vee...if your around Kelowna and want to do a zip down westside road...pm me (thats if this weather gets better not worse :mad:)
We could do the Salmon river road to Salmon arm also its a nice ride :)
I bought my Vee and my KLR at Valleymoto....Cory is a great guy :) Also owns a Wee. I spent a lot of money there....:cool:
Oh and mines Black but no side cases yet.

I am in Kamloops. I have been thinking we should organize a meet for all the interior v-stromers this summer.

Isn't westside road the curvy lake road that if you lose your attention span for just one second, you end up in a ditch ? :) I'm pretty sure I've been down it once last year.

Sounds about right :p
Runs along westside of the lake from just above Kelowna's bridge to other side of Vernon. Popular ride :)

Ok, that's the one then! Drilled down there last Summer and saw at least 3 cruisers picking up their bikes after overshooting a few corners :) Fun riding out there. I nearly lost it on one of the corners myself LOL!

Sorry to hear about your heart attack!

I'm in

Hi There
I'm in Summerland. I own a 05 Wee that's light blue/gray with Givi side cases and a Shad top case. I'm riding as much as I can and would love someone to ride with.
A great ride is the loop from Summerland - Osoyoos - Beaverdell - Kelowna and back down to Summerland. I did it last Saturday. 325 klm/5 hours with breaks and lunch. It'd be nice to have a riding partner though - that way I wouldn't have felt so out of place at the Rock Creek Hotel Pub surrounded by all the biker wannabe's. Next week-end I'm meeting a buddy in Merrit and we're riding over the Douglas Lake Ranch to Falkland and then into Vernon. We certainly don't mind having as many as want to join us. Likewise, in two weeks my buddy and I are going to the Horizons Unlimited rally in Princeton. Again, the more the merrier.
Anyway - I'll check this site often and see if anyone is up for a ride next time I'm planning something.
BTW - I'm a middle aged rider that just took up the sport last year so I'm not an agressive rider. I only obtained my license last Aug but my buddy and I, and my son and my brother-in-law, rode from Phoenix Az to the Panama canal in January. Not on Strom's though, I'm afraid. Good ol Honda's.
Cheers
