Canuck riders likely noticed that online motorcycle parts and gear provider Canadas Motorcycle is no more and has been replaced with "FortNine". Prices and content seem the same as well as range of brands.

What is different however is their online reviews on YouTube. A young fellow, Ryan, is just plain different. Quirky, funny and frank. Really good reviews that are very well done.

Have a look at this review of Honda's Africa Twin  Cool

interesting! He does have a certain charm to him and is enjoyable to watch. The production quality is exceptional, although I did feel that it dragged on a bit when it came to artsy fartsy long pans  Bigsmile


Also interesting that he stated that the F800GS was comparable for competition but then at the end, said that there was no competition  Headscratch


Overall, good review and confirms that I made the right decision with my F800  Inlove

So subjective.  I swear the best Adventure bike is the one I now own. Late model 640 Adventure. AMAzing motorcycle and stunning off road.
But I get his low slung weight. It was the biggest killer of my KTM 950. Never ridden a BMW 8 ....

I just read something about a new Yamaha Tenere, a 700cc parallel twin, sounds like it might be serious competition for your Adventure 690!  Nice to see the trend away from monster sized pseudo-Adventure bikes.  I didn't see a weight for it but i imagine it will be manageable.

I've seen a couple of his tire reviews on Youtube.  I like him.  He writes well, or ad libs very well.  I will keep an eye for him.  Thanks for sharing.

Yup. Been using Fortnine and the precursor CanadasMotorcycle for quite a while to get stuff to my log cabin in the boonies. 3 days from order to the front door in Cape Breton. Takes longer to get a letter here from the neighbour! First time I saw a review from Ryan on a helmet I was investigating, I thought he was not working for the company... He was pretty forthright about the failings of that particular lid. Better than the usual K-Tel shills.

I recently bought a set of tires and then a tail bag from Fortnine and was quite happy with them. I'll be getting another set of tires from them next week ( just got back from a long ride that just wore out most of the last pair.)

I've been a satisfied customer of this company for a few years.
It's great that we now have a dealer like this in Canada and can skip all that cross-border and customs procedures.

Got a chain from them recently. Decent price, quick shipping, no border hassle.

What's not to like?
