An early heads up if you are looking for a July long weekend event.

Hey Greg, I'm sure I can find an Indian to ride to that!

Hello all, haven't been here for a while and wish all the best in 2012. I can't believe it's almost March, good news is riding season starts soon.

Ice breaker is a great idea, i will try to make it to get a ride with all you guys.

Stupid winter!!!!

Well, a week ago I was thinking that I would have the bike out by the middle of March, but old man winter dicided to come three months too late.

It's nice to see a few people piping up with interest in an ice breaker run to my cottage. As soon as the conditions allow me to pull the bike out of storage we'll start making the plans.

I hope this melts fast.

Before this snow I was feeling rushed in getting my bike ready....not so much now.

Took out the snow blower today and relocated a great deal of snow to my neighbours yards. Going to start servicing the bikes this coming week. The two vintage bikes need to be ready for the "World of Wheels" in two weeks, so some snow had to go!!!!

I Live clear across town. Must be a hell of a snow blower. Seems all to be blown into my yard. I was just about to bring out the toys. Well guess I will have to wait.

It's up at Albert Beach! only an hour from the city. When I'm confident the weather will be ok for riding up there I'll propose a lunch date to make a plan.

Couple of picks from last year

John showed up after dinner so we brought him a steak from the hotel.



A look at my red neck gazebo just out side my screen room on the red neck patio.
