No my brother has to go to a funeral in the afternoon so he is out. This is the second time we have tried to make a scoot out west this year that has fallen apart.

We just have to stop our lives from getting in the way of rides!

Ely is "not" this weekend. We were looking at the 16, 17 and 18 of October. I am still waiting for confirmation from NorthRider.

Guess I've bought a new bike. It's an '07 R1200R with 650 kms. Comes with a new factory warrantee for 3 years. Problem is, my wife is likely to kill me. That, and I have to wait till spring to pick it up in Southern Ontario. Must-sell-Bandit.

Damn you Rick!

And yes, my wife would kill me....

That Scrambler IS pretty slick! Just figure I should stick to road bikes. I am, however keeping an eye open for a small dual sport. Used.

Anybody up for a run to sandylands on monday? Looks like a good day to play in the sand and I havent been there since the start of the season.

We could also go to seddons corner but it tends to be wetter there as its a lower elevation then sandylands.

Let me know, as I'm happy to guide and really want to get out into the bush.

Hi Trevor, hope all is well at school....would like to join you, however I am building a shed. Can't make it this time.
(I might add that the easy follow instructions are great... just wish they would put a picture on the box like Leggo.)

Hey has anyone heard from On-Off?

God! It's 20:13

and I can't decide whether to go out to the lake tonight after work or wait till the morning and head out early. I should have been asking if anyone wanted to ride out with me in the morning since I still have to be back for work by 15:45.

Maybe I'll look to see if anyone responds to this before midnight, or maybe I'll just flip a coin.

I'm not to keen on riding the bike in the dark, but I do have a good head light!

Arrrgh! decisions decisions.

Help!

Just got back from a short cruze. Way to nice out...!!
If you head out it will be warm, just have keep a good eye on the jumpers and the skunks. They both can do some heavy damage.

Enjoy the ride.

Thanks Greg!

I decided to go out this morning. The idea of running into a deer just didn't sit well with me. Of course I almost ran into a truck instead, on my way home. Bone head was driving around the north end with a blown out tire in the rear. I even think the prick intentionally pulled in front of me.

On the subject of deer. I hit one, or rather he hit me last Sunday night at dusk. Prick dashed into the side of my GMC on the Trans Canada just west of Falcon Lake. Really happy the wee Bandit was safe and warm at home! We should all carry .45 ACP's and just shoot the cockroaches!

I'd be in.
I'm a long time lurker with a WR450 that I dualsported last year. I've been wanting to go to sandilands for a long time.

Let me know if you are still going.
