Now you're on the right track.

Just looked out the Window to see that it still snowing like crazy, think I need a single malt chaser for my martini.

Living in the city I used to despise shoveling the damn driveway.
Now living in the country with a snowblower, it's all the same on the back.
No lifting except for a couple of pints when I am all done.
I feel for the shovelers with this crappy stuff.

Ohh and thanks for the rear rack Emmbeedee, and giving me a small unofficial tour of your stable.

I'm in the same boat with my 11 yr old daughter,

I got her on it at the end of last year, clutch and 5 speed... She did very well, but I'm sure there is others that can teach better than myself... If I can't afford the courses, I guess it will be time in the saddle for her....

Worth the drive and every penny. You guys can drop your kids off for MX school. Then you can take off and ride the Ganny.
Some of the best loamy single track in ontario exists there.

Cheers

Staying near Castries?
Did a bike (pedal) tour of the city when I was there. Very interesting city. Check out the fish market while your there. Fresh fish, sitting in the sun for four hours...:what:
Diving was great too.
Driving scared the sh@t out of me though..
Drive thru volcano is interesting but a large tourist trap.

Sent from my mobile.
