08 650!

I've been riding for 25 years and finally found this terrific bike. Rides great! I look forward to meeting other local (Toronto Canada) and US riders as i plan on riding the smokies next summer. Thanks for the forum!

Welcome, from just down the road a bit. Looks like no windscreen on the bike?

Anti-spam thing. You need to post four (I think) times here to prove you are an actual human, then post away on other threads!

Welcome from the other south coast (Lake Erie). If you get some time next summer I can show you some nice roads around here.

Thanks Smiley sounds like a plan! Appreciate the info on the postings. Oh and yes I removed the windshield. I've always had "naked" bikes.

Ha ha the blue ones faster. Good comment. That said power / torque is very linear which imo makes it great.
