Been touring around Germany for the last 15 days and the number of old Honda and Yamaha bikes has been amazing stopped and talked to many of the owners to tell them about Canada and the riding that everyone does very interested in our country

Sold my V Strom 1000 and picked up an older ST 1100
Changed the fluids and so far it’s been a fun bike

Installed the new Viking bags. We were torn, with or without the sissy bag/luggage rack. Its looks pretty sweet without, we figured we better put it back for now.
Crash bars came in, but need some longer bolts. Final completion pic to come....

Stock other than the two brothers exhaust. I’d eventually like to get a bigger bike but for now the ol red rocket does the trick !

When I was younger I had a cbr 950, also known as the “Fireblade”. It was an insane motorcycle, capable of going well over the 240 mark. I won’t ride anything like that anymore.
It’s the fastest I’ve been on wheels lol.
Awesome bike.

Man that’s gnarly! I can’t imagine that much power haha.

I was thinking maybe a gsxr 750 or something else with similar ccs when I do upgrade. However, being a 500 this bike is cheap af to insure !

My son has a 2014 CBR 500R. Its a great bike! I can't believe the fuel mileage that he gets vs. my big M109R!
I’m convinced it doesn’t even use fuel lol

I’d like to use mine more for commuting to work etc, currently trying to find a backpack that’ll fit all my lunch/snacks and laptop etc without breaking the bank

Racking up the miles in hopes of burning off the factory tires...
Shoot me a pm if your planning on cruising through PG, would be cool to grab a beer/coffee and hear your travel stories

2008 classic streetglide with crate 110”
Had this bike for quite some time with a big chrome 21 on the front and stock 16 inch on the rear. Finally got some wheels for it. performance machine 21 in front 18 in the rear with Avon tires. So much better with matching wheels.
