The rain pretty much killed the idea of riding today. I don't mind the cold, and I don't mind being wet just not both at the same time.

Consider using the gear part of the preventaive maintenence program. Better to find out now what works than in Tuktoyuktuc.
I'm leaving the country for a month so no riding for me. Will have to catch up later.
Ride safe.

Good point used to ride back and forth from Chicago. Needless to say my rain gear has had it limits tested.

Going for a ride around lake superior in July hopefully I won't need it :)

I was able to get out on Saturday for the first proper run of the year. Really great weather I can't wait to do it again. I wrote about it here: http://sherpapat.wordpress.com/2013/...t-and-chatham/

Anyways, I figured I'd introduce myself since I've been lurking for a while now. I'm in London, so if you see me around (Highbury to St Thomas), wave! I bought my first bike last summer and look forward to some good rides this season. I'll try to make a point of checking in on this thread now and again :)

Still hunting down a good battery for this damn thing. Till then it is dead in the water and Im using the CBR1000RR. Looking into the pc310 Oddessy and the Yusa. Appareantly I was told there is a battery fro the 640 with like 160 cca and there is 1 for the 990 thats 5mm taller and is 260cca so Im curious if I can fit that 990's into the 640... would be nice to have extra cca but I have to make sure the battery can halde the vibes from the 640. it throws out alot of vibes.

Chatham was soaked but Tim's was dry.

P.S. You can also find some decent backroads north and east of where Sewerat is in Brooksdale.
Thanks, I'm kind of new to the area. Do you mean near Port Stanley? Or could you suggest some specific roads?

Cheers!
