Good day all!

I have a 2014 Red F6B that I bought new in June 2016. Didn't put anywhere enough mileage on it last summer-the heat was brutal.

I had the dealer install a Honda tall screen, centrestand, backrest.

After a few weeks I picked up a Uclear HBC200 intercom system, and for the winter a Honda Optimate battery maintainer.

Joined the GWRRA in Mississauga this month to meet some like minded individuals (let's ride, can talk all winter) and am looking forward to taking some skills courses/driver training for handling a big bike.
Chopin, Badrider and Terryj like this.

Welcome to the forum Terry from another Ontarionite or Ontarion....resident. I'm just north of Huntsville. I could use some of that heat we had last summer. It was -29C last night and I'm ready for spring. 3 more full moons and we're planting!

We haven't seen extremes like that in Toronto. It's only -4 now with a low of -8 expected tonight. Coldest expected this week is -10. Living by the lake has it's advantages.

Welcome to the GWOF!


Rider training at any stage is a good idea. Truth is, after over 40 years of riding a variety of bikes I find myself practicing more now each Spring than ever before, especially slow speed maneuvers in a local hilly parking lot. If I keep riding I guess I'll have to start practicing high-side and low-side "offs."
