New member in Canada

Hello, new member from Barrie Ontario. This will be my third season on my 09 versys. I do mostly northern Muskoka and near North rides with tons of gravel and light trails mixed in.
I've owned more bikes than I can count and the versys is the first one I've kept for more than one season. I don't know why but I just love it.

Welcome From Southern Ontario

to the forum, very beautiful picture, thanks for posting!

And now I know why that picture looked familiar, my last late fall ride was the Peterson Road, Bancroft , Bala , over to Orillia.

from out west.

Come to Vancouver Island and we will show you some beautiful rides.

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

That picture was taken near Coopers Falls. Beautiful area with lots of fun roads.
I might make it out west one day as I have family in Victoria and the Kootenays.

Thanks everyone! I've been doing some winter maintenance, valve check, tb sync, oil change and a good cleaning.
Spent some time on the exhaust tonight.


Also mounted the new pegs.


Quite happy with everything and getting ready to button it all back up for the upcoming season.

Do you ever get over to the YT? There is a pretty fun ADV gathering in Dawson City every June around solstice. You should plan a ride
