So I got the Sherpa running again, but I need to put a new master link on my chain. I bought a new link but it is the riveting type, but I don't have a tool to put it on. I went to buy one at Princess Auto, but they only had chain breakers. Does anyone in London have what it takes to put one on?

My only real problem is that I accepted a job offer in New Brunswick so I need to get this figured out pretty shortly.

Good to meet you today, Nokmuay.

Drop by if you ever find yourself near Hamilton.



edit: You, too, Alex. Where are you living now, anyway?

Hi Alex, I was also offered help from OldSilverFox and I PMed him a few details. Unless for some reason we can't make it work out I'll send you a PM on Friday and we will go from there...

I definitely need to get it sorted by Sunday!

Hey guys, is there any riding anywhere near London to justify owning a dual sport? I have a Ninja 250 right now, which is great, but I'd love to go off-road sometime. I'm thinking of switching over to a DS.

good thing about Ontario in general are all the road allowances and untagged trails (the ones you can legally be on with a licensed vehicle)
Pretty sure you can get lost for days within an hour north,east,west or south of London.
Maybe the local crew can put together something decent one of these days, I'm just starting to scratch around so I can get my bearings.

My son is getting his M1 this summer. I'd like to find some places near London where we can get some decent practice, soft ground so he (and the bike) don't get hurt.

You guys in SW Ontario, anybody frequent jeepkings.Ca they do a bit of offloading sometime there are decent excursions
