School the rookie
All good advice for a new rider I see on the posts here. As a fellow Canadian welcome to the fold!! Not sure what the "lid law" is in Alberta but here in Manitoba we have to wear a helmet. I would certainly highly recommend that for any new rider. That and remember that you are "invisible" to most other people on the road so drive defensively. That's what keeps me alive on 2 wheels when I am surrounded by texting/smoking/eating/inattentive people on 4 wheels.

Lots of chrome goodies, sagebrush engine guard chaps for cold days in Manitoba, Rumble Road speakers, Garmin gps, tank bib, modified seat, Ohlins rear shock - best investment ever!!, locking saddlebags, Kuryakyn luggage, brake-away cruise control, and more stuff every year.
