Hello I'm Jim and Picked up my Forza on the 19th of September and have been really enjoying it.
It replaces an 86 Helix that is getting kind of tired.
I think I have been out on it every day since I got it.
The one thing I have done so far was yesterday had the windshield replaced for the tall one.
To me that increased the fun factor 500%, as I was use to the tall shield on the Helix.
At some point will purchase a top case for it.
In Canada only the ABS version is available, but we do have a choice of Red or Silver, for colour.
I chose Silver.

Thank you Strkngfang and Warlock, and you welcome MichRocks.

Very confident with this bike. I seem to look for any excuse to go out.

Under the cover is my 1986 Honda Helix that the Forza replaces.
If I had a garage I would keep it, to do the proper restoration that it really needs.
It has been a nice bike and I hope I can find a good home for her.

The helix does have a lovable, cute, ungainly, and unpretentious fabulous look to it.

I love em both.

Hi ScooterKim.
After the Helix, then to experience that short windshield on the Forza, then back to a tall windscreen, is just rider bliss. :D
