Hello from Ottawa Valley

Hi all,

Just hit 2000 km on my 2018 Versys 650... bought it used in May with 0 km on it, that's another story! Was riding a Yamaha 2003 Roadstar that I sold in 2008, so been without bike since then. Moved from Kansas to Ontario and had to get an adventure bike to take in the beautiful country and roads... boy am I loving this Versys, wow what an incredible change from a heavy cruiser!!! Any other riders in the Ottawa Valley??? See you all around.

Cheers,
Stan

With all the Ottawa Versys people it might be fun to do a Tims meetup/ride some weekend this month. Was thinking Calabogie or Quebec/Montebello. Thoughts?

PM me to RRSV or suggest routes/time.

Welcome from San Antonio, Texas. Used with 0 km must be an interesting story. Perhaps you can tell us one day.

Hi Greg - Tried the PM, but looks like I'm not allowed to send email until I have 20 replies to my posts. The ride sounds like a great idea... Since I'm in Arnprior, Calabogie is always a option that works. Wondering about the Montebello ride, does that have some good scenic and curvy roads? I'm always up for something new.

Cheers,
Stan

The clock starts from the second post, after that you should be able to send PM. Also a handy thing to update is this https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...ification.html which allows email notification but maintains privacy.

Thanks Onewizard! Had read thru the link from your first "helpful" post, but forgot the 48hr after "2nd" post rule. Thought it was interesting that the email fail message mentioned the 20 post reply rqmt. Should be good to go tomorrow then.

Cheers,
Stan
