I've had a crush on them for awhile now. Since my trip to Thailand in July, I've been dreaming of owning one. Plus I have family that comes and goes to Thailand 3-5 times a month. It give me access to very inexpensive parts.. Especially how all the NA dealers are trying to gouge the market like they did to the ruckus.

Shell Rotella T6 Full Synthetic 5W-40.
Yes i know its for diesel engines, but it is now JASO certified. Google it, lots of people using it in motorcycles, wet clutches. Seems very underrated. Just checked Lordco, little under $43 for a jug. Cheaper than walmart and canadiantire

My friends and I cleared the shelves of this stuff from the Walmart that we went to down in the states a few months back

19.85/3.78 = 5.18USD per liter
46.97/5 = 9.39CAD per liter

5.18 USD -> ~6.45 CAD

still at $3 difference per product. so if you pick up a few jugs and do grocery or fill up gas at the same time, i think its worth it.

Exactly how i worked it out also. My bike take 3.3 liters, so buying a 5 liter jug here would have me waste a liter. Planning on going over the line in a few weeks anyways, for my new born son's nexus interview

Yea..... the road to Squamish was great. Mostly dry with the exception of a few damp spots where there was shade on the way there. It was completely dry on the way back.

If this (pictured below) was the bike that you saw, then yes it was me. On my way back I took the Horseshoe Bay exit and went up on Taylor way to avoid the accident that was on hwy 1.
