Hello from Canada
« on: February 21, 2015, 02:44:22 pm »
Hello from Canada! I just got back into riding last year after 18 years away.....still not sure how I convinced my wife to let me get another bike but she also increased my life insurance  :o

In 1996 I wrote off my trusty FJ1200 in what was not a serious accident but bent the frame and cracked the block.....anyway, a silver Bandit called my name last year and I realized how much I missed riding. So, I just pulled the trigger on a leftover 2014 Connie and can't wait till spring to take delivery.

I'm also active on the COG forums.

Any other Canadians here?

Cheers!
Pat

Welcome to the site. I just joined as well; my name is also from a Bandit. I had a 2001 1200S and I really liked it. If you know a little Canadian history you will know where the Bytown comes from.

I bought my C14 last year and enjoyed everything about the bike last season and I'm looking forward to 2015.

Enjoy and once spring comes ride safe.
