Great Riding Day In Nova Scotia

It was a great day for ride here in Nova Scotia today so I took my new V out for a spin this afternoon. I put another 150Kms on it today. Great bike!

Here are a couple of pics of the V while taking a break.

Hey twowheels, thanks for the welcome. Other than mine, I have only seen one so far this year and that was at the Tim's in Enfield. Then again I haven't done much riding in and around the city yet this year. I'm sure they are out there though.......

I'll keep an eye out for your bike. If you see a red one with KMW stickers it's mine.

KTM stickers; that's great. When people look at mine (with the Kawasaki decal in plain sight) and ask what it is, I tell them it's a Linguini 650.

do me a big favor & explain how you get on & off with that tall saddle bag.
I recently got a saddle bag & I have very hard time to mount & dismount, I am ridiculous at some gas station trying to get on, etc.
Thanks.

Hey miguelito, will do. I will take some "prettier" pics next time I am out

razteo: I am really tall so I can swing my leg right over it....lol....just kidding. To dismount I just stand on the footpegs and bring my foot over the seat and step off the bike on the low side. To mount I just do the opposite, stand on the footpeg on the low side and step over the seat. (The bike has to be on the side stand of course.)

That bag doesnt belong on my V. I bought it for my vmax but took it off before I sold it. I had it on there that day because I have yet to get the proper bags/panniers for my V and had nothing else to put my jacket liner in. I have only had the V for 3 days as of today

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Thanks, is probably the only way.
I just don't like to do all that aerobic with the bike sitting on the side stand, especially on not level or smooth side road that I'm always on...
