Been thinking about coming up for the icebreaker, but the way this spring has been going, I've got a problem:

The bike isn't gonna cut it. Can anyone loan me a sled for the event?

Jones Power Products in Wawa, has a great selection of sleds... It might be why the Ice Breaker is in Wawa this year.

If he does rentals, this would explain much.

Looks like the temp. is going to skyrocket into the + single digits today.

There will motorcycle mayhem today... Tim Horton lots will be filled with Harley's, coffee shops on Corydon will be packed with Scooter Riders and Sport Bikers will be racing from dealer to dealer looking for warm riding gear.

And where will be the ADVrs be today?

Amazing what the correct float level in a clean carb will do.
Cheers!

Well, this Scooter rider beat all of the above to the starting line, and is already back from her western tour...I did not stop at Timmy's (or any coffee shops anywhere)...nor did I race from dealer to dealer looking for warm riding gear (although I did order some electrics this morning, in anticipation of...well, y'know)...

I did, however, freeze my butt off, and decided that the western tour would stop somewhere just beyond Headingly...Then I race around the Perimeter for a bit, got lost in Charleswood, and eventually found my way home...I may go out later, but then again, I may not...

I built a shed like that with some friends when we lived in Cameron Falls.... we would have been 7 or 8 years old then.
