I like to ride a bike for 6 weeks, then park it, and take a different bike for a month or so.....each one needs a plate sticker. Riding 6 or 7 bikes in the course of a season sometimes. At $50? a crack I may change this behavior. My insurance agent is very cool with juggling the bikes and made it very easy to switch rides during the season.
$90 for a sticker.....wow
Prices went up Sept 1 but not that much. The $90 is probably a truck in for southern Ontario.

The Northern Ontario price went up from $41 to $45

Motorcycle in North is 21 and 42 in the south

You pay $4300 for insurance? For the bikes alone? If true, I shall never bitch about my $700 insurance bill, ever again. OMG!

Yes ours is just for plates, insurance is a separate matter.

Since that time I force myself to turn my head when riding. I also have to force myself to look WAY up the road on the hwy instead of a few hundred feet. It's a very interesting sensation. It's like seeing the entire world in 3D for the first time. Objects appear stationary way up the road, but you pick up the trees and stuff close up whizzing buy in your peripheral vision. Love it.

Anyway, glad you liked the pics and maybe you'll notice that you don't turn your head enough and it'll spur a change.

And this may be yet another example of "going where you look". This guy apparently provided a great laugh for those following behind in their "dash cam" equipped Eastern European car that gets "300 hectares on a single tank of kerosene"

Here is a link to a series of pictures, and a classic example of the wrong way to go through a corner, at Deals Gap . The fellow is focused on getting his picture taken and likely begins his turn too late, drags some metal and scares out, stands the bike up and runs into the car. Note not a single skid mark and the car is close to stopped (except for movement trying avoid the crash) when they make contact.

You don't need to go all 3rd world to see that kinda stuff first hand!

A couple of years ago, at the end of a 16KM trip, I was riding the Dragon a few days before heading home. Naturally we caught up to some chrome turtle who was dragging everything on nearly ever corner. So I took the opportunity to snap some over the shoulder pics at my buddies behind me.

At some point, he must've seen me in a chrome flamed mirror that will eviscerate him at the site his first accident. He keeps turning around and looking back at me. Sure enough, next corner he looks over his shoulder BEHIND HIM , at me - riding one handed.

... Aaaaannnndd... their he goes. Off the road.

P.S.: The only reason I rode the Dragon at all was to show my gf. Otherwise, theirs way better roads with way less traffic than that shit show.

I feel sorry for him, as it clearly wasn't his fault.
To start with, he's riding a cruiser and everybody knows you can only use the rear brake or you'll crash...
Then of course he couldn't use the brake as everybody knows you can't brake in a corner or you'll crash...
Then there was that damn photographer who set the whole thing up by distracting him with his camera so he'd crash...
Poor guy never stood a chance.
On the plus side, he'll probably go back to four wheels.

Would have been a internet viral hit if he had landed on his feet.

Edit
I downloaded the series and animated it. I don't think he had a lot of time to correct. Should have let off the gas and drove the front end into the corner and continued hard turning and dragging his pegs and laying it down if necessary. Even without the car he was heading into a tree or at least of the edge of the drop on the left side of the road.

I cannot really blame the photographer, they are on every corner, it is up to the driver to be aware of his path and speed.
