Born again Motorcyclist.. Hello from Ottawa, Canada

I've owned several motorcycles throughout the years but never seemed to have time to ride...(Familly, work, etc... I know many of you can relate.). Now that I'm semi-retired; I decided to get back into the game... took possession of my New 2017 Kawasaki Versys 650 LT SE, on September 6th, 2018.

Hoping to get as much riding in as possible before the first snowfall, which usually comes in late November or early December, here in Ottawa Canada. !!

Welcome from central Ottawa. Lots of Versie in the city.

If any Ottawa/Gat area V riders are interested in doing a run to Tremblant or just a coffee run/meet sometime this year msg me.

Yes. Usually it's because you set your camera (cell phone) to automatically "right" your pics. Disable THAT and try again.

Gatineau? That's over near the "old EB Eddy plant", n'est-ce pas?".

Well... another Versys 650 LT SE in the area. I'm in Perkins.

If you see one with a chick on it's most likely my wife. Not many around here.

I'm usually riding with her on my Super Tenere.

As long as there is gas in the tank, there is hope.
