Hello from Edmonton, AB

So, the bike show came around a few weeks back and they had a deal on a 2013 Versys 1000 so I ordered one! Of course we are in the middle of -30 right now and still at least a month away from riding. Glad they are keeping her in the shop until spring.

At any rate...will be lurking a bit as I am making the jump from a cruiser to the Versys.

from central Maine where it's only -3 F. That would probably qualify as a heat wave for you.

You don't need a trailer to haul a Harley

weljo2001 - that video is great!


rayj - my current 750 Honda just didn't have enough power for my mountain trips...and I have been riding it as hard as it will take. Time to upgrade and to get a cruiser with the power I want would cost almost twice as much as this Versys did. I may go back to a cruiser at some point, or I may end up with a Wing...
