If you use Apple, you don't want to talk me about them. I've had more problems with those piles of junk than ANY PC I've ever owned.

I hate that pile of crap Ipad so much, I went out yesterday and bought a Nexus tablet, because it actually works!

Just completed a ride report with Ron. It involved an overnight trip to Dryden and back to Thunder Bay. Ron took his CBR125R and I took my CBR150R. Had lots of fun. Even sampled a 1987 Ninja 250 on the trip. You can read all about it here:

Here are some photos to whet your small displacement bike appetite.

Getting the bike ready for my next little adventure. I'll be solo, need to be able stop at random for pics, and despite the bigger bike this time, much of the ride will be at low speeds.

Can you just imagine how fast you would be on a S90 instead of a C90. Would leave those big GS bikes wallowing in mud.

I couldn't stop laughing at that. Each time I was beginning to recover - I'd pause YouTube to read the next line and then I'd burst into another fit of laughter.

Hope you have a great solo ride Ron. And thanks for that video!!!

Mike

Hey that is the exact model of the first motorcycle I ever drove. I actually rode as a passenger from Dryden to Kenora on one of those. We hit over 65 mph on a steep downhill with a tail wind and both leaned right over the bars

I think I have finally dried off since our last ride. Ready to try it again but hopefully with a few thousand less gallons of water.
Anytime Jim! Went for bit of ride early sat morning to break in some new boots.

Your looking rather angry this morning
