Hello from Mississauga

Hey, just bought a new 2019 Yamaha Tracer 900 GT, and I can't wait for spring. I'm 56 years old, a returning rider, my previous bike was an 85 Yamaha Virago which I rode from 1994-1998. Signed up for the first MTOhp M1-M2 course in the spring, Oakville location, may see some of you there, I bet.

Welcome back Freddy. Nice ride.
I remember attending a few Freddy Fuddpucker parties at UoT a couple (20+) years ago.
 
Haha, thanks for the replies. FreddyFudpucker is just something my brother-in-law says once in awhile, always made me chuckle.
Re: losing my M license , I just never renewed it after selling my Virago in '98. And they didn't have the graduated system back then as I recall.

Mods. The only thing so far is I ordered a sidestand footpad enlargement thingamajig from AliExpress, 7 bucks US

Nice bike. I just purchased a 2019 Tracer GT last week. Black with white trim, <4,000 km.

I'm looking forward to riding a 500lb bike vs. the 750lb one I've had for the last 18 years.

ReStored, thanks and congrats on the Tracer, I know what your color scheme looks like, I almost bought that one instead.

Regardless of licence status, taking a course (or two) is never a terrible idea when returning from a long absense in riding. I did exactly that in the same situation, and have taken a few advanced rider course since then as well.

If you had a m license you still do unless you just kept renewing the learners permit every year.

Yup, you still have a license. What's the story here?

Or.
If you moved to Alberta for 13 months with a "GM", got an AB driver's license, and moved back to ON. Upon swapping the AB d/l for an ON d/l when moving back, you lose your "M" endorsement that you took with you when you left ON, and have to start all over with an M1 license.
Ask me how I know.
