Newbie from Canada

Hey everyone - Newbie from Canada here. Currently running older bikes but after missing most of this season with break-downs, its time to get something a little more reliable for the daily rides. In the market for a 919 and I figured I would join up here and learn what I can.

Well, you came to the right place! I'm on the phone app and not sure if I can link to anything but head over to the Naked section and a sticky has been made about helpful tips for the 919. Lots of members have some great videos on YouTube as well. In fact g00g3liT has been posting quite a bit lately. He is a post whore and a video whore as well...who knew?

Welcome to the site. I used to live in Cowgary for a few years. Can't wait to get back west. Nb now. There was a guy in Calgary selling a 9er with hard bags a while ago. Not sure if it sold. Good luck with the search. Look up Rickard. He is pretty active here.
