Default 2006 Toronto Hornet

Hey, I'm new to motorcycling and just got my 599 two weeks ago. I'm the third owner but plan on keeping her for a while. It's a 2006 with 18000 K on it. Its got some after market parts. A K&N air filter, Hindle Titanium pipe (re-jetted), Givi Crashbars, a rear hugger / chain guard and braided break lines. I need new tires and think I am going for the Michelin Road Pilot 2's thanks to the forum.

I plan on getting a rear fender eliminator kit and a decent set of LED turn signals. I'll search the forums but feel free to post your suggestions here. I also think the braided hoses I've seen on some Hornets are pretty sweet.

Still getting to know the Toronto bike scene. There used to be more Motorcycle shops downtown but they have all moved to the burbs.

My brother just picked up a 2007 919 for his first bike. We are taking the Motorcycle Training Course later this month. I'm looking forward to my M2 and fewer restrictions.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Welcome, fellow Torontonian!

I had a puncture in my rear tire this spring and after reading reviews went with the new Road Pilot 3's. They get good reviews, especially for rain (even though I don't ride in the rain, unless I get stuck in it while I'm out). I'm not noticing a heck of a lot of performance difference, but I've got a Road Pilot 2 on the front and it was early in the season when I replaced it - so I may have noticed more if it was replaced mid season. I'd still recommend getting the 3's if you're getting new tires anyway. They're not much more expensive.

See you on the mean streets of T.O.

Just ordered the Road Pilot 3's. It was a difference of $40 bucks.

Now for the undertray...
