Hi everyone. Name is Jason Young and live in Prince Rupert. I'm new to the cruiser scene and am glad I made the switch. I've only ridden Sport bikes before. I purchased a 2014 Yamaha Bolt back in April and love it. I already want to upgrade to a bigger touring bike. Anyway, just thought I'd say Hi.

Hi Jason, welcome...

Despite the name of the forum, we're a pretty varied bunch here as far as bikes go - in fact I'd bet cruisers are actually in the minority :lol:

That Bolt's a pretty cool bike, have you seen the one they're modding on the Motorcycle Experience tv show? R1 forks and swingarm, looks like FUN.

For me, I prefer a smaller bike. IMO bigger is not always better.

Welcome, Jason!
We're a very diverse crowd here in terms of bikes! Well, not much of a crowd, it's a smaller group of people, especially now with everybody spending their free time riding :D

I've never seen a Bolt in person, but does sounds like a nice bike! What kind of a big cruiser are you considering as your upgrade?

Welcome Jason,

Small but interesting group here. Sometimes lots of action, sometimes very little. Diverse backgrounds and rides but everyone enjoys riding.

Best regards,

Shemogolee

Welcome to the forum. Nice to see new members and posts show up.

Have you ridden the Nisga highway yet? That is close to you. Lots of great roads up your way.

I've driven the Nisga Highway many times, just never on a bike. That's on my list this year. It's a beautiful drive.

Hmm, I imagine there's lots of highway and controlling the insect population without a windscreen sounds... meaty.

Welcome to the site! I look forward to hearing how everything goes up there and seeing the bike in all sorts of crazy places.

What's your favorite ride to do in the area?

Cheers.
