Chimay at LCBO and SAQ

Looks like LCBO carries it, as well as SAQ (Quebec) based on their web sites.

Not so much luck down here in CR to find a Chimay, but at least I can get a Leffe Dark or La Chouffe, which are not...

Glad to hear you're ok

Sounds like it was more of a "oh sh*t" moment than actual damage, which is a good thing. I like your "splitting in 1st gear only" rule. It took me some time before splitting lanes here, but I do now...

Looks like Metzeler Karoo 3. If that's correct Jtoper, how did they handle in the mud and wet pavement? I have a set waiting to be mounted after the K60 and TKC80s will have gone bald.
