Hello From Eastern Canada

Hi. I've had a K bike for 21 years and recently added a GS to the fleet. I do all my own maintenance and repair work and have found these forums to be invaluable in picking up tech info not easily available elsewhere.
I started riding back in the '60's on a CB160 and still have my 4th bike which is a 1973 Norton Commando. I've been an instructor for the Canada Safety Council Basic Rider Course for 15 years and enjoy passing along some of the things I've learned over the years. I hope to learn more and contribute to the activity on this forum.

Welcome to the site - the first motorcycle to terrify me and ignite the passion of riding for me was a '69 750 Commando S in bright yellow - an d while that bike is just a memory it's been a great ride ever since - we'll look forward to hearing more from you

Thanks, I was through your town on a rented GS last november. It was a great run down the coast highway. I see one of those 68-69 Fastbacks for sale locally this week. The Nortons were great bikes in their day, but like cars, today's bikes are just way better.
Thanks for all the welcoming words guys!
