Cool New owner from Calgary/Kelowna

Hi guys, been lurking on the forums for a while now, all the posts here have really helped with narrowing down my choice of bikes as I return to the motorcycling lifestyle.


At the end of March I travelled to Atlanta, Georgia to purchase my "new to me" Green 2009 Versys from fellow member "Indulf". Had a short test drive, signed the papers, and popped my new toy in a storage facility while I wait for it to be warm enough for a fly and ride in about a month's time (I hope!).

Would love input on a suggested route to follow from ATL to Calgary, great roads to ride, etc.

The bike in question, thanks Versys Forums:

Looking forward to participating more and maybe even meeting some fellow V riders here in Calgary, or my hometown of Kelowna where I spend a lot of time in the summer.

Cheers!
Adam

Thanks! It's about a 2400 mile trip (3700+ km) and it'll be a great way to learn the new bike, that's for sure.

Probably understand what all the bitching about the stock seat is about after the first day

No bitching about my stock seat as its a lot better than my z1000 seat, but i do confess i brought a air hawk for the Z and use it on the v now.
