more pics of the fall 05 Ontario ride
« on: December 09, 2005, 07:29:22 PM »
I (finally!) got my "analog" pictures processed...

Hope that brings warm memories after shoveling the snow we just got! And send me a message if you want higher-res versions, I'll gladly e-mail them. Happy Holiday shopping!

On my way to Belleville on an Early October Saturday morning:


A few of us:


Three Musketeers?


Let's play "Where's Louis' Vision!"


Breakfast early Sunday morning - cold, humid weather; coffee was good.


Later that Sunday morning with my Kingston Host's black stocker (whose engine's still peppy):

Do you mean I dont have the ONLY Vision in Ontariari-O ? Since buying my Vision back in July '05 I havn't seen another one "in the flesh" other than at the wrecker yard.Joy to the world it must be Christmas!!!!
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming HOOOOYA lets go again baby !!!!!!

'82 Vision, Pearl Orange finish, lots of up-grades!!!

Glad to make your acquaintance Tigerjohn!

Actually, I'm from Aylmer, so that's technically one fewer Visionary from Ontario. But that's just a detail!  ;)

We're not many, but we are enthusiastic. Hope we'll meet next season,

Hi guys,Nice to make your aquaintance.I came back into bikes this July more by accident than design ,after about 20 years.I aquired the Vision via one of my customers who had it in storage for 6 years.She's an '82 ,16,000km's on the clock,two previous owners before me and all original, including the paint work which is gray/blue,sort of air force blue.The only problem I've had,so far,was a bad fuse box (rust !)which I replaced a couple of weeks after getting on the road.Since then I've had a real blast getting re-aquainted with an old love affair called biking!!!However all good things come to an end & the Vision needs to be winterised as well as a few touch-up's here & there.I have also aquired a full fairing which I need to paint & mount.Any body know where to get a litre or so of paint !It would be great to get together with you guys sometime.Great pic's Lou,I would appreciate a few .Please Keep in touch.John.

Hey Tiger John,

FYI I am just down Winston Churchill to Derry Road.  Your the closest Vision owner to me.  Give me a shout.

WOW..Going through the archives and found this post..As you can see from my avatar I purchased the red and yellow vision from Louis before they were to be parted out..Both bikes are running now..My girlfriend is driving the yellow vision..The red vision runs great as well..We get lots of looks with two identical visions..The reason I posted is Louis was only 10 minutes away at the bravo..It's a small world..Maybe I can meet him there for breakfast one day..

No she's not.  :o Driving is something you do in a cage. Riding is what us "Brothers (and sisters) Of The Wind" do!  :D  ;D
