Just picked up my v1000 se lt today... I know, what timing eh. But was getting a decent deal on a demo model so went ahead and traded in my Yamaha fj09.

Now to get some basic accessories going

Hit me up if you located in the GTA.

Also appreciate if someone can guide me to a sat nav mount that goes above the display. The Kawasaki one is for handlebar and not a fan of that location. Tia

Welcome from San Antonio, Texas. GTA? Maybe Greater Toronto Area?

Grocery Ride

On the up side I got a mesh tie down from Fortnine along with my EBC brake shoes, what a huge difference in braking. So kind of funny today, dam cold out so went for a summer sausage run, yes where in Canada are stores closed on a Monday, Elmira Ont. So I had my full face helmet & 8210 mask, I discovered it has a advantage, my facesheild doesn't fog up ( plus 5'C )and a online order at Home depot, 2 days after ordering a motion sensor it is ready. So I did a grocery shop, yup helmet, gear , mask and about 30 LBs later, my top box is full and I have my mesh tie down with about 15 pounds. So now I can carry about 48 cobs of corn.
So Tuesday I am heading to Elmira again and possibly Costco , food run again,gas & limit of 30 minutes per stop, any longer and I start melting.
