Hi there. I'm a Canadian expatriate living in Taiwan. I've been here for 9 years now and I'm enjoying it a lot. My wife and I enjoy taking motorcycle rides through the mountains in Taiwan. We currently ride a 200cc, made-in-Taiwan Hartford HD-200S. It's okay but has its issues, particularly on longer rides. I'm in the process of researching our next motorcycle, so that's how I stumbled across this discussion forum. That purchase won't be made this year, so I have some time to research my options and familiarize myself with everything. And, in case anyone is curious, Taiwan--like many Asian countries--has a HUGE import tax on all vehicles, making a Kawasaki Versys about 418,000TWD, a Suzuki V-Strom 650 428,000TWD, and a Kawasaki Vulcan 900 438,000TWD (I'll let you convert those into your respective currencies just for added shock value). Other than that, my hobbies are books, movies, coffee (roasting, making espresso), and straight razors.
