Welcome n00b.

There's tons of stuff here you can read up on. Sounds like the kijiji bike north of Toronto. Seems like a good deal.

Everyone will tell you something different and in a flash will turn into a suspension upgrade fest or it's crap because......

My 09 has been fantastic, 45k kms now. If it's a one owner with all the history then great. Look for a cracked fuel tank (see threads) and a valve cover oil leak (old type gasket). Get these all fixed under warranty and check all recalls have been done. Steering bearings have been an issue on some but again, warranty. Rims bend easy so check them. Not warranty but they bend back easy too.

If you do buy it then you'll have a winter's worth of reading here.

Enjoy.
