I think TD and Primmum are one and the same.

TD has several insurance lines including Primmum

Indeed TD did buy Primmum but TD also bought several other companies including MelocheMonnex. I don't know if TD will ever integrate its several subsidiaries. The last time I checked they were operating as separate entities under the TD umbrella. All of that to say that it is possible to get different rates depending on what TD subsidiary one deals with. Like some others here have mentioned I have acquired bikes at this time of year and essentially enjoyed a premium holiday with Primmum until February of the following year.

Stephanie and I were out on a road ride and went 352 kms. Ended up very near Tamworth then turned around and did the Mountain road all over again. The roads North of 7 were quite wet and salty so we stayed South of it though our plan had been to go towards Foymount/Quadeville etc.

It was so warm I didn't even turn my electric jacket on once all day. Saw a high of around +15C at one point.

Juames and I rode some familiar dirt roads in and around Almonte, Clayton, Blakeny, and a few other areas. California Road and similar stuff... plus a few light trails but nothing nasty.

I made a poor wardrobe choice and rode with only a light technical fabric shirt as my base layer, then my pressure suit, and the outer layer was my "Kemptville dinner jacket" (as appropriately named by Hosebag). It was just fine between 12pm and 1:30pm, but for the 3 hours before and the 2 hours after, I was absolutely freezing.



I managed to tweak a hand guard and thump my hip pretty good during a low-side on some grassy two-track off Tatlock Road. No big deal, a few Advils and a drink of Jameson's will fix it up.




Having such nice weather at this time of the year is a real treat. ... It's just unfortunate it's only nice for about 3 hours during the middle of the day.

Definitely was a bit chilly, but still a nice day for a ride.

Public Service Announcement for BMW F800/650GS Owners:

You might want to check your valve clearances - BMW has revised the clearance specs, meaning that most engines which were in spec will now be tighter than called for. (Our 80,000 km engines still run like clocks but they're going into Jesse's anyway - mine for the 80K check, and Stephanie's to have the valves adjusted)

Mine were tighter than called for with the new specs. But good to go now.

Did you do yours yourself? The cams need to come out and Jesse said it's only a bit more than an hour to do the whole job so I'm letting him take care of it. Not that I'd feel confident to do it myself, but I really don't have a clean, dry and reasonably warm place to work.

No, Jesse did mine a couple of weeks ago.
