Newbie from Canada, Qc.

Hi guys, I'm new here and i found you by the internet.

I want to show you my first bike..a Honda 599 2006 5500km.

I'm from the mountain biking (dh) scene and i wait 10 years before doing my permit because i was feeling too madcap to have a motorcycle. Now i'm near 30 and i just love my move!

This bike feel so good for me and its enough fast for a guy who never rode a «sport bike» before. I search a long time before buying it..my choice was between an fz6 and the Honda, but i dont like the half fairing style of the yamaha and reaaly like the naked old style fashion of the 599.

I own an 1992 5.0L mustang before, i sell it to buy this bike...it was a hard move, but no regret since i ride the bike

12.1 at 116 mph first run at the dragstrip...with a soooo bad start...its hard to lift off with a bike..I will practice.

Im from Montreal, in Quebec in canada. You guys seem a good crew.

Welcome fellow Canadian!
I used to live close to MTL in Cornwall ON. I loved taking trips to MTL. Beautiful city. Unfortunately I live much farther away now. Still visit every now and again though.
