Jemsolly-I was at the air port in 1963 ready to leave for OZ when the gov. paid your way, one way and after 3 years you didn't owe them the plane fare back.
Girlfriend at the time gave me a choice and boy did I make the wrong one.
In most of Canada there are 4 seasons like Silver Bear says,only we say they are June, July, August and Winter.
I'm in British Columbia and the only temperate part of Canada at least in our lower south west corner. About 70 km south of Vancouver. We are about 25 min. from the US border right on the ocean.
Here we have warm and dry summers and cold, wet winters. Can't ride because the rain freezes on the road and creates black ice. The road looks bare and dry. The car in front of you puts thier brakes on and the road shines like a mirror.
Very nice bike and as has been mentioned the back ground is very inviting.
