I rode my 1973, 350F9, Kawasaki around Thunder Bay on New Years Day in 1974... Only fell off three times due to icy conditions.
There was no way to stop going down Dufferin Street hill. LOL

Hey Gord, I'm pretty flexible on the Phoenix trip as for dates. What were you thinking? Off road? HOG?

First ride of 2013

Took the old DR650 out for the first ride of 2013 today. Not much of a ride - went to Metropolitan Moose for a cup of tea, then to the lookout 6 km west of Kakabeka ( near Mokomon Rd), then home to Murillo. The temp was okay but 60 km/h winds made it somewhat unpleasant, and led to some drifting snow across Oliver road. But it still felt good to be out riding.

I walked out to the garage and put the new insurance slips on all the bikes. Far enough for me.

With all the bikes you have, in Manitoba you would have needed to take out a second mortgage to pay for it.

Awe shit I may have opened that can of worms again. SORRY.
