Greetings from Sherwood Park, Alberta

finally! like afew others, went to the motorcycle show a few weeks back and walked out the Owner of a new bike. Always liked the Versys, and that's what I set my sites on. My new ride is sitting in a crate at the dealer intown, waiting for spring. Really can't wait for spring to come. Been watching Versys vids on YouTube... Yup, really cant wait for spring.

Sherwood Park...? We used to go to the "submarine races" at 'Blueberry Hill', just east of there, back in the '60s....

Snow and ice lock down! Global anti-warming!

Every winter is predicted to get worse until full ice age!

Hahaha!
Welcome roundhammer!
Cold days are leaving and warmer days are "fast approaching"!
In the meanwhile spend some time reviewing the transit laws of your region. I personally believe it is easier to forget some traffic rules when one's ridding that when one's driving a car.
Have a nice time!

Welcome from cold Saskatoon! We just came from Edmonton this past long weekend visiting family and frequented the Wine and Beyond Store in Sherwood Park on the way home. Could drop a small fortune there!!!!!

Hey, congrats on the purchase, I just bought one myself from Echo in Edmonton, although I'm picking mine up this Friday because I don't want the first warm day to hit and EVERYONE wanting their bikes at the same time, there'll be quite a wait from what I understand.... and I would like to have it in my garage so I can just sit on it and wait.. haha.
