Hello from Sammamish WA

Hey everyone,
I have been lurking around these forums for the past couple of months and decided that I should come out of the shadows and say hi. I bought my 09 V about a month and half ago and I'm loving it. My buddy and I are planning a cross country trip this summer and the V seemed like the bike for the job.

My other bike which I will probably sell is a 2000 Triumph Speed Triple also a fun bike but different breed.

Yeah to be honest I wasn't wild about it when I saw it in pictures but when I saw in person it was pretty awesome.

What type of route were you thinking about for your trip? Where are you going to? You have lots of nice riding up there. Stevens pass, Cascade loop, Grand Cooley, Whidby island, that pass (hwy 410 or 12) that goes by Rainier to Yakima.

We are going to ride from DC back to Washington state. See buddies we have along the way down south and family as well. Plan on hitting the Blue Ridge Parkway but other then that no real solid plans for the trip.

Around me locally there is some great rides, this time of the year is really hit and miss with the weather though. Lots of forest roads and back country areas off the mountain pass roads as well. Not to mention hwy 1 starts up here (Tacoma area) which is a great ride along the whole western coast.

That was the reason I purchased a Versys back in 2011. Still loving it 38,000 miles later.

Welcome. My '09 is the other colour available in Canada that year. I wish I had the GREEN. Nice bike!
