New V650 owner - Edmonton, Alberta

Hi everyone,

Scored a deal on a 2015 Versys 650 (Candy Lime Green) that had only 200 km on it. Picked it up today, so new to the v650 and new to the forum.

Welcome!

Nice to hear from another member here in Edmonton.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride! Hunter S. Thompson

Born here, raised in small town Alberta, came back here for University and then work.

I live in the Southwest (newer part of Riverbend). I see you are in Kelowna - lucky - close to fantastic motorcycling roads.

GREAT roads here, which is WHY we moved.

I spent the first few years of my life VERY close to you. Our house was on the S side of White Mud Creek, right across from the ski-hill 'chalet'.

Welcome from sunny San Antonio, Texas, where it's currently 93 degrees - and it isn't even summer yet. Time to bail out and head north to Maine!

Welcome from Ottawa. Don't forget to download the service manual from the Tech Section of this site. You'll appreciate having it and it will make life easier when it comes to common maintenance tasks. The beauty of a forum like this is, is you get the shared experience of 100's of users who all own and have maintained the same bike. We can share our successes and failures with things like aftermarket parts and maintenance proceedures.
