Welcome to the forum ... tell us more about you , your bikes , Where you ride ....
How has the Himi been? Thinking of getting one!My name is River and I have a 2021 Himalayan. I’ve been slowly adding protection in order to make it more trail worthy. I named it Roycephus from my favourite character in my favourite movie “sometimes the window guy is on the roof”
So sorry to see that. There are quite a few nice roads that are a joy to ride on a motorcycle, then there’s that stretch between Winnipeg and Calgary that isn’t.Love Canada too, had a holiday there a few years ago and was meant to hire a bike but unfortunately lost my license just before due to medical reasons so had to make do in a car as a passenger!
Thanks for that, def some food for thought!!So sorry to see that. There are quite a few nice roads that are a joy to ride on a motorcycle, then there’s that stretch between Winnipeg and Calgary that isn’t.
The Himalayan has been a joy to ride once the break in period was done. Aftermarket parts have been a bit difficult to find, took me two years to find a better skid plate. If I was looking to buy now, I would pump the brakes and wait for the 450. There’s also news of a 650 but I don’t know how much weight that’s going to add to the bike. For secondary roads the 411 manages quite nicely and it has that nice thumper sound. Would I cross Canada on it? Possibly but the Super Ténéré would be a more comfortable option. For day trips with the possibility of dirt roads it’s a great bike.
