    Pulled up along side you at a red light ( i was actually in the backseat) on columbus. I know better than to tailgate a fellow rider :)

    3:45 today, saw another Varadero travelling down East White Hills Road, St. John's. Rider had a white helmet. I was on my V-Strom 1000 and waved.

    I am enjoying it. Loads of torque as soon as you twist the grip. The engine has a nice if muted sound and feels good. It handles the rough broken NL roads easily. It also feels lighter than it looks.

    Just got some Givi Trekker Outback bags for it. They are going on this weekend I hope. I saved about $400 by ordering them from Italy. Tried to order them in Canada but no one would come close to the price.

    Saw a beautiful Puch in Mt. Pearl this afternoon. I was driving so I never got a good look but I think it was a 250 SGSA or similar model. Love seeing older bikes around like this, rare sight to see a pre-1980 bike around here which is too bad. This one looked to be in real good shape.

    Pretty sure I saw Pizzaman in Corner Brook today - an early model BMW with sidecar anyways. Would've stopped to say hello but I was partaking in the Yamaha Demo ride on a 2015 FJ-09. Impressive bike I thought...

    While,walking along Internal Drive in Orlando Florida last night I saw a gold colored Honda Varadero drive by. I couldn't make out the plates at speed but it was definitly a Varadeo. No bags or top case either. Maybe a snow bird down for Daytona Bike Week that is starting this coming weekend?

    Either way, weird to see a Varadero this far south...

    Maybe the varadero goes south for the winter. They were never sold in the USA and the speedo reads kph only.
