    I meant the ones on Damos Barter's lawn. LOL
    Don't recall seeing the ones above, they on the Port aux Port? They look like the hoodoos here in the Okanagan only whiter.

    Yesterday we went for only my second ride of the season. In an effort to not overextend ourselves we went and had a picnic at the Narrows Lock. It being a National Park site the bathroom is open :)

    The route took us down the Old Kingston Road (sandy) and then we came back through Murphy's Point Provincial Park, a recently paved very hilly twisty road. A whopping 175kms.

    I was inspired to dig out my RTR t-shirt with this ride report in mind.

    If I’m not mistaken, that’s a seam of gypsum that runs through the area. Similar to the flat Bay Area across the Bay by the TCH

    Nice looking little bike there Stephanie, looks like you're ready to go racing again. That shot is a little different than this one of yesteryear.:p

    Those were the days! That little Dresda Trident I'm standing beside was about the same physical size as the R3 is. About 60 lbs heavier though, having that wonderful Triumph 750 triple in it. Total blast to ride to, a 52 inch wheelbase and it would turn on a dime.

    I should start a thread with the Tale of the Dresda sometime. The build was.... interesting.

    That'd be really interesting to follow. It was years before I figured out where "Dresda" came from.
