Hi from Calgary,

... which amazingly enough, is not the typical frozen hinterland this time of year. I picked up my 2007 650 last week; October is such a great time to get a new ride as prices are low, and sellers seem motivated. Im fortunate to have maybe a weeks worth of riding before the white stuff comes, and Ill be automobile-locked until some time in May.
Heres hoping everyone is rewarded with a nice long riding season, as I have been

Dave - quite a few Albertans here (I was born in Edmonton and lived N of Cowtown before I moved to Kelowna - GREAT riding in BC...)!

Hello and Welcome. I hope to get a bit more than one week in, but you're right - the skies are turning to Winter...

Bike looks pretty cool blacked out. Is that a rattle can job or pro?

Always trust your cape.

Hi, the matte black was an professional job initiated by its previous owner after he took it for a sustained skid. The price and amazing looks made it easy to ignore The "rebuilt" status on the bill of sale ?

Welcome to the forums! Enjoy your last rides before snow. I'm lucky enough to live down south where we don't see a single flake.

Yay! More Albertans. I'm up in Edmonton, and there's at least one other forum member in Edmonton with me. We'll have to plan some adventures next season! Welcome.

Something goes here...
