Smile canada ride, thanks

Pete, I appreciate the info on the insurance and gas. If it's ok can I ask you for some more info? Such as how many hours from Detroit or Toronto to Quebec and are there places to stop etc. I drove to Toronto once. I was stunned at how dark it was at night and also what appeared to be not too many gas stations. Is the stretch between Toronto and Quebec also somewhat desolate? I realize my outlook of what is desolate may be skewed since I live in Chicago.
On a lighter note, I saw you noted GT options on your RS. I've been working on the same. I wanted a GT but couldn't find one at reasonable cost/miles, etc. Couldn't pass up the 03RS with 1700 miles last September from my local dealer.
I found the GT comfort seat online, much better than the terrible stock rs seat. I also found the GT hand cluster online so I used that to wire in the heated seat and look original.
I've been thinking of adding the handguards but not sure. Have you added these or the leg guards?
Thanks for your help again
Markus
