From Ontario to BC and back

Hey all

Got the 2012 V June 22nd. Put 1100 km on it so I could get the break in oil out. Then off to British Columbia, Penticton to be exact. Left Brantford at around 12:30 pm Thursday June 28th and arrived in Penticton at 3 am est on Sunday morning (midnight Saturday there). It was around 4000 km..
The bike handles the road as good as I could drive my 03' ZX-6R.

So my brother and I (he on his KLR 650) headed for the mountains, abanded rail way tracks, and BC single path. Except for the gravel the bike rode amazing (I think the stock tires just don't like the gravel at all).
I have to say I'm very impressed!!!!!!!!

I was going to come home through Canada but thought I would come back through the states again when I spent 75 bucks for a hotel room on SK. The other factor was adding an extra day and driving in the very humid weather for 2 days. So I dipped back to ND and was back in 3 days as well.

The back sits just under 10 000 km and its 16 days young don't know many other bikes I could have done this on.
