    Ride for the Fallen

    It's gotten to be pretty much muscle memory for me. Just like going from a bicycle to a motorcycle where the front brakes are reversed. No issue for me the muscle memory just kicks in. I did a Streetmasters course at the MOA a couple of years ago, those exercises riding around the little course...

    Vangroovy rider in town

    Hey Wayne you rode by us near Northern Bay yesterday. I was on the red Beemer and waved to you. I would have waved you down if I'd realized sooner. The R1100S is not the best dirt road bike either but it does ok. He's not out of bed yet so not 100% sure of the plan yet.

    Hogan’s in N Bay

    This missus took me on a little adventure today to try Hogan’s, not too far from the house. They said 20 minutes and it was an hour. We went down to the beach and discovered no salt, no vinegar and they omitted the dressing and gravy we ordered and I’m sure paid for. The fish was fine, the chips...

    Went for a ride today...never ending hi-jack thread

    I would say go looking for ATV sites. The Quebec crowd would have had to trailer down for sure, I only saw the rolling up the the ferry checkin gates.

    Went for a ride today...never ending hi-jack thread

    Went for a quick spin around the Cabot Trail before getting the ferry on Sunday. I rode it counter clockwise as someone once told me it was better that way. I couldn't see a difference, I only saw like 3 nice views. The only good thing about that ride are the twisty sections, we don't have...
