I'm in Ottawa and I go to GP Bikes. The last time I went into Wheelsport, the KTM dealer here in Ottawa I said I was looking for a new rear tire for my 950. The 1st question was "who makes that?", from the guy at the parts counter sitting in front of a 6 foot KTM banner. I dunno, maybe its me.

Don't get me started with Wheelsport. I was in Ottawa last year - had 3 dealings with them. Never again :(

I had the same question from the parts guy at St. Onges grabbing an oil filter for the Versys last year.

Sunday Ride

Anyone else get out for a ride this weekend? Was glad one of my four bikes was running well enough to hit some urban streets for a lark on Sunday. First ride of 2013 - January 13! WTF?

Minimum Inventory Orders..... Seems to me that at the rate those beasts go through water pumps and clutch slaves that minimums shouldn't be a problem!

I dunno, I'm approaching 70k on mine and she's still original.

But I'm still waiting for the rear drive to start leaking - hold on I don't have a rear drive - nevermind

I recognize that view, I've ridden my bike there many times, even on horseback a few times. :)
