July 2014 Bike of the Month
« on: July 01, 2014, 03:42:24 pm »
This months winner hails from Canada where he started his own business about a year ago. He sells used motorcycle gear, which I think is great as it makes gear affordable to those who might have to go without or opt for lower quality because that's what they can afford. I admired the photo he posted in the Gallery section a while ago, so his bike has been on the list.



Congratulations Klaatu, your 1986 V65 Magna is July's Bike of the month. The above pic is the official BOTM photo, but some of you may prefer this one.



It shows his new chrome case covers.  ;D

Nice bike Klaatu, I hope to see it for myself if I ever get down in your neck of the woods. If you're ever going by here, be sure to drop in. Excellent choice once again Michael.  :thumb :beer: :thumb

Thank you Michael,
I can't believe my bike is included with some of the amazing bikes that I have seen here.
It has gone through some changes since the picture on the bridge in 2012.
Thanks so much for this, it means a lot to me.
