I helped MZ drink a lot of Yuengling at CroMag, I'm chasing more interesting higher alcohol stuff

I was having a good look at my rear tire today (Michelin T63) and while there's still a bit of meat left on it, I suspect it'll be finished by the time of the rally...so I ordered a new D606. The price was right so I got a front, too.

+1 on the BBC; happily surprised to get it on tap nearby. There's a ride in the Berkshires 5/20 & I hope to visit BBC on 19th. Have you tried Pretty Things http://www.prettythingsbeertoday.com/wp/our-beers/ ?

Is there a good border crossing FAQ? I imagine the hardest thing about it is avoiding the moose/deer but I don't want to bring something by mistake that causes a problem unintentionally.

You folks are bringing beer hope you intend to drink it all on the Thursday night as Fridays terrain is not conducive to carrying more weight than is needed

My bike runs
Next weekend the pre riding starts

I dont like where this conversation is headed. I already promissed Reshmi I would try and do away with the Yellow Crocs when we were far enough away from society that they could never be found again. Now you are recruiting followers of your twisted "The yellow Crocs keep the evil spirits away" thing. How many shoes will I need to off this summer?

Shaken, not stirred?

Hopefully my 26 km on dirt/gravel from the Beer Store (or LCBO) to the Thursday campground isn't too jarring:

I've driven that road. It's a good dirt road with nice rolling hills and some good corners. Nothing too jarring but a fun ride.

Dont try bringing in any moose or deer! the local population of wild lifemay take offense .. or find your widlife attractive! It is hard to get a moose in heat off your bike ...im just saying.. boarder gaurds may look at you funny with a deer for a pilon as well.
