Hello all. New guy here from central Canada. Just put a deposit down on a new 2013 N1K ABS. Got a great deal from TransCanada Motorsports. Been browsing thru this site and learning lots about my bike and sport touring in general. Raced MX as a kid. Got my KZ550 in my late teens. Got my kids into MX and got back into it myself. Just too hard on this 40+ body ! Now, looking fwd to getting back on the street and doing some trips on the new bike. Can't wait til 'pickup date'. (June 1)

Yep. The bikes have been out for almost a month less a few real cool days; even the odd snow flurry BUT we have had temps of mid to high teens (Celcius) or roughly 60's/low 70's F ++.

Welcome Coach,
From a fellow Canuck in the nation's capital.
I also bought a new N1K13 from a local Kawi dealer, I got the white and black one.
What colour did you get?
Never been out to Manitoba, maybe one day I will.
Cheers,
Den

Thx for the 'welcomes'.

Den, I got a green Kawi with black tank. Was the only in the showroom but I think I really like the color. Rode KX's in my MX days so a little partial to the Kawi green. I've seen pix of blk n white ones, tho, and they ARE nice !

I opted, so far, to not get the factory sidebags. It's another grand ++ and just have a hard time rationalizing that kind of $$. Almost bought a 98 KRS 'taxi' and then almost an 02 KRS. A little high on the mileage for the $$. But, I wanted a ST and I actually like the hardbag look on those two Bimmers and on the N1K's. Won't be doing any track riding so I think I'd be able to live with the bags on most of the time. We'll see. Maybe I'll budget the factory bags or Givi's down the road.
