Hey! I am from British Columbia, I live in a small town called Comox, which is located on Vancouver Island. It's about 3 hours North from Victoria BC. I am learning how to ride right now, which is something I have wanted to do for many years and now I am finally doing it! My other half owns a 1968 Norton Atlas. He rides it all the time, and yes, it does leak oil sometimes. We went to a rally last summer in Grants Pass, Oregon and then came home along the coast, that was beautiful! We didn't ride back, we had the bike in the back of our landrover that we drove.:huh We are searching for another bike right now, so I can't wait!! Anyways, hi!
