The KLR and I enjoying a logging road in southern B.C.
The KLR in a hidden part of Saskatchewan.. everywhere in the photo was rideable land.. a fantastic riding area.
I went nuts this week and bought a new ride, a BMW R2400RT. I picked it up yesterday and took it for a long ride this morning. Really have enjoyed the first day with it and hope too put lots of clicks on it shortly.
Did you buy your Ducati new, Sportbikecalgary? Is it true that the maintainence on Ducs is crazy expensive? I see you have plenty of confidence in deserted Alberta highways...
Enjoy your new ride, Gerhard! I'm surprised you even have time to post.

Lucky you! That must have been a day to remember, when you took it home. I think it's a great looking bike. Wishing you many more happy miles...
I lived in Elliot Lake in 1996 and bought a new 900SSCR from Brampton Cycle, which at 600km was my nearest Ducati dealer, and the cost of the first service included three motel stopovers. I had the bike for four years and she never saw the inside of a shop again as it was much much easier to do my own maintenance. Even oil changes became reasonably priced after I realised that the full synthetic didn`t have to be Motul and the filter needn`t have DUCATI printed on it.
