Hi I am new to the forum and wanted to say hi, I am from Canada Eh lol. I havent done any crazy long touring yet as I have just commuted city to city and some small back country roads, between Fort McMurray and south of Calgary, more day runs and such of that sort. I have the wrong bike for the type of tours I want to do and have come here to read the stories, get tips and info on some of the adventure riders out there. I haven't been able to find a suitable BMW 1150 GSA here in my area, not many people seem to have them, or at least don't want to give them up. I have read some of the posts on importing from the states and information provided seems quite helpful. We will soon see what I can find for spring riding season. Cheers to you all and happy travels. Play safe. I will post a few of my oddball pictures of my last mud run when I get a chance too.
