Welcome to Vancouver Rob,no better riding and as well here on the coast you can ride year round if you don't mind the rain in the winter. I lived most my adult life in S.Ont. With the last 15 years in TO. Hated winter but when I turned 45,I couldn't take the heat so I moved back here to the coast. I am now in my 53rd year of riding & have down size to a Virago 1100.
