How am I only finding this thread now?

I love riding my 899 around the North Shore and Van. I use it as a rain or shine commuter (12 months a year minus the snow storm days) and another way to have fun that I dont seem to be getting in cars anymore.

The bike has been great. I love the electronics as I can pretty much go out in crap weather and the bike will stay upright. Its comfortable. Gives me boners. But isnt fast enough to scare me. Its a great streetbike.

My third bike. Previous two were supermotos (2009 WRX and 2010 Duke 690). Super fun but I wanted a change. Everynow and then I think about getting an SM again….

Its gotta be raining pretty hard to take the car - and Ive got a sweet car! This bike puts a smile on my face like no other vehicle Ive had yet has.

How's the servicing cost on that bad boy? Also I hear the electronics are really finnicky; like if you lay it down even gently you're looking at a hefty bill. Curious as it's (well, the new 959) on my list as a potential next bike.

The decline of forums

When the posts are mainly politics now and the ones that aren't degrade into political debate what's the point. Used to be fun and games here in good old NBR.

The few other forums I have have time to visit are still doing fine.

Interesting MT-03, I don't think they carry that model in Canada.

This is my current bike:

Had it for almost 4 years and I think I'd like to get something a little more powerful, possibly leaning towards a full on sportbike. Though those new FZ-10's look hot, I didn't find them especially comfortable.

The Ducati Panigale 959 on the other hand…

Going to pass on Steep. Overwatch is addictive. New update to The Division sounds fun. Killing Floor 2 was a nice surprise.

Looking forward to The Last Guardian, Horizon Zero Dawn and hopefully Rise of teh Tomb Raider will see a sale this holiday.
