Thanks. I appreciate your comments. Can't wait for the weather to improve so I can find out!
Did you buy your SVTC over the Winter months, and haven't yet had a few hundred miles under your belt? Just wondering...as most forum readers would...
We got ours last May, and have:
1....taken weekend trips throughout the riding season,
2. Toured from Toronto to Nova Scotia, and took the simply ***amazing*** Cape Breton Island full tour. Came back home through Bar Harbor, Maine....
3. Did the Lake Superior Northern Tour, as well as the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
4. Went down to visit in August, family in Phoenix, Arizona. Our SVTC performed flawlessly.
5. To close off last season, in late October, we took in the Fall colors by heading to Wawa, Ontario, then coming back, went over to Manitoulin Island, took the Ferry over to Tobermory, pigged out on fresh White Fish overlooking the harbor....and then down the peninsula back over to Toronto.
All in all, not one hiccup, burp, falter, back step...from our 2018 SVTC. A simply fabulous grand touring bike....and we are this year (2019) as one of our two major trips (we see Tours----> as major and minor) we are heading out to Boise, Idaho,, up through Montana....back home through Minnesota....and butt-breaking all the way...what interests us...we'll stop and hike, or tour....that sort of easy laid-back motorcycle vacation. We love the carry capacity of the SVTC and will be packing for not only motel/hotel stays, but for camping as well. We love Provincial/State Parks, as well as all the usual franchised suspects.
