keep watch on the buy and sell sites like kijiji,i saw a set of winter tires for 60.00.
i am not riding in winter,i dont like falling down at a walking speed,nevermind 40 kph.
i would suspect engine will need a richer jet as weather cools down,the sealant around the wiring and maybe a little shielding to keep engine a little warmer.
i was considering throttle control from an atv,thumb throttle instead of twist grip.being canadian,our brains are 1/2 frozen in the winter,riding a bike is almost a normal thing to do.
good luck.
yea eh? damn I really want to make one, my route would be along a major street so i am bound to run into a cruiser, hopefully the cop will realize hes got better things to worry about in a city.

Any idea of the charges if any involved with ridding the bike in Ontario?

if its a small fine under 100$ It wouldnt be that big a deal really. Just want to beable to get to and from school quick and efficiently
