Welcome. Would be nice if you put where in Canada in your profiles. It's a big place.
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

If your friends don't like bikes then it's definately time to find new friends :roll: , but are you sure it's not that they are all jealous of you having a new bike?? :lol:

Welcome to the club, where abouts in Canada are you (It's a big place!!).
