Welcome! Good pick on bikes. I like the Honda NCs, but I don't think I'd ever enjoy the rev limit, and the under pillion fuel cap is it's own deal breaker.

KawEh... that's funny.

Always trust your cape.

Seems that there are a few Albertans(and ex's) here...maybe we could have a group meet-up.

Smart enough to know better...but
