And yet another bike, well, it's a Scooter. Since my fellow traveller (a.k.a. husband) indicated interest in riding, too, I got him a two wheeler, which he would be able to handle easily, even with little to no practice, because this vehicle comes with an automatic gearshift and a shaft drive. So it would be like bicycle riding (without the pedals, and with a curb weight of approx. 250kg). We purchased a well maintained 2005 Honda SilverWing with low mileage in Cochrane from a retired entrepreneur who was selling it out of his two million Dollar RV at a very reasonable price. For me, decision was a piece of cake. I saw it, I rode it, and I had to have it (for the purpose to get my fellow traveller into riding, of course).
