About time. I only texted you 2 hours ago. Man. What are you... working or something?


Is that really your sorry ass in the kayak?

Old place did a major overhaul and nuked the regional section altogether. We figured we'd bring our brand of humour over here and brighten up this dismal place

Whitey Jr checking in. I guess it was only a matter of time...that old place was going to the dogs. Things are starting to melt real good out at The Cove....I can sense bike season right around the corner!

No one is more anxious to ride than me. The new bike in Smurf garage is calling to me ... and it's getting louder everyday :o)

Well I was wondering what happen to everyone. It was pretty hard lurking on a site that had no one there. So just to catch up who has new bikes and what are they? Smurph thanks for letting me know what was happpening.

There's a few other threads that were missing on the old site from the Canadian chat area - pretty much anything from before 2013 had been trimmed.

I like this move here to ADVrider - this is one of my daily must-surf sites.

I think there's a way for the thread originator to change the name of the thread, or at the very least ask one of the admins to change it - but I kinda like the fact that it's spelled wrong - makes it more "real".

Anyway, happy to be here - it'll make a nice central place to post stuff of interest to our specific crew, while at the same time there's likely going to be plenty of traffic coming by to see "whassup".

And here's a picture of Louise and I in Radium last year on way back from the 2013 Trip of Wasps - ride report coming soon!

Mark bought himself a new BMW, I bought Marks old Strom from him, the Varadero is going to go up on the chopping block.

Yes Steve, it was a Vstrom specific site.

More chatter here in a day than the last 2 months on the site that must remain nameless

Hi Honey, We've Moved!

Hello lads, lassies, Rob, etc.

I haven't posted to the "... Chatter" for sooooooo long now! I just looked at the lump of snow under which my bike resides....so, sad! Come on spring!
Good to be back guys.
