History My outgoing bike. Purchased as previously enjoyed in 2011, but only enjoyed a little bit, with 9,030kms on the odo. I added about 40,000kms to it, and my single longest trip was from home (Kingston, Ontario) to Charlottetown, PEI and back. It worked well enough but even with a fancy aftermarket seat I was pretty sore. Sold in the Spring of 2017. Wish I still had it. A lot of fun winding that thing up to 12,000RPM+.
