I rode to work today too... Here (central ottawa) the roads were dry and clear. I was also out for a quicky on Sunday but today was even better... especially the ride home! The sun was out and I took a little detour

Felt great!

Got the F8 out for a short jaunt today. Brilliant! Ended up on the Quebec side and the entire time I was worried about being stopped since I didn't know whether the winter riding restrictions were on or off.

Do you have a Quebec plate? If no, then it doesn't apply to you anyway.

"“Between December 15 to March 15, the owner of a taxi or passenger vehicle registered in Québec may not put the vehicle into operation unless it is equipped with tires specifically designed for winter driving, "

Right, if not plated in QC, you don't care... and if you are, you go on the SAAQ website and fill a very low level form, because you are going to ride in another state/province and it's ok... so you don't care

That law in QC is a real joke, as are most laws in la belle province. I know first hand that a few Ural dealers were dealing with Heidenau to get a snow flake stamped on their K37, a knobby many of us run on the Ural. In QC, M+S is not enough for the Language Nazis, and they prefer hieroglyphics anyway. If I offended anyone, it was probably intentional. :)

Well... M+S is a joke.
This standard is not proof enough and means nothing (todays)
The QC law asks to have real winter tires in winter... that's it, and when real winter tire will be available for bike, we'll be able to ride during winter.
Wich is not actually a real trouble... as I said, we just have to go on the website, fill an authorization paperwork and ride.
BTW, since this "stupid law" is on, most of the car accidents when snowing you can heard about at trafic info on the radio are on the south of the river...

You are right, M+S is English, so has no validity in QC. Perhaps N+B, or is that B+N? That might suffice. I guess a true knobby is not enough in QC, or even an Ice rated tire, but we are also talking about a Province that targets Ontario plates because they are from Ontario. I could go on and on, and I am more them willing to do so.

Sure the accidents are South of the river....there is no ban on QC drivers here yet. After moving here from Toronto when I was 16, 24 years ago, I was advised by every driving instructor to watch out for two things, red plates, and Quebec plates. Not much has changed in that time.

By every driving instructor ?
Did you need to meet a lot of them before being able to pass your driving licence?
What you wrote is completly stupid, and racist.
I'm not native from Quebec, not even from Canada... but reading what you wrote I understand why some of them want to be independant.
Fortunately, most of the people in Ontario are not like this, every one I met so far are not like this

Plonk!

Better threads to talk specifically about the winter tire law in QC, some even leave out the ranting and discuss the options Here's the Coles notes - I don't think there is a winter tire option for us two wheel types if you live in the belle province - except the 7 day pass) As for Quebecers driving habits well have you ever been to Halifax or tried your luck in Toronto? I don't think disparaging remarks about Quebecois drivers falls into the racist category as Quebecers are not a race of people but a culture of people. Happy to be called out an corrected as I'd be interested to know that my genetics vary enough to garner not only distinct society but also distinct race acknowledgement.

On another note, looky what I found on Kijiji, belong to anyone here? Sure is a sweet looking ride with all the good stuff already added to go Rallying. Wish I was shopping for another bike, someone is going to have a killer ride!
