There's some nice smooth, twisty roads up that way. A sharp contrast to the Quebec side of the river.
I think it was the 515 that was really great. Letterkenny, Quadeville, Palmer Rapids and up around Round Lake area is all nice.

Scott, Did you find that the bike fit you well when it was stock ?
( seat , bar and foot peg positions )
I’m leaned forward a bit , the foot positions are good, but the seat needs to change.
it only seems comfortable if you put your but out back -like a racing position , not made for being anywhere near upright…

I'm less than 5'9" so every motorcycle fits me perfectly. I loved the riding posture of my R1100S and could ride it for a whole day from the moment I bought her. Of course, that was 20 years ago too. Haven't sat on one since 2004.

Another wonderful evening for a ride
lovely photo, and bike. I like this era for BMW, in fact it was a bit of a toss-up for me at the time between the B11 and a contemporary BMW twin. mostly went with the Guzzi cuz I thought the motor made a bit more interesting noises, but it was close...
