(weatherspirits, made in Canada) .

It was ~-12C, never needed the vest.

I love that surreal feeling , riding past the 5 foot snowbanks on the side of the road, and being toasty warm.

I broke a handguard riding the ice road, but that's ok, I was looking for an excuse to buy some new ones!
When it gets below -10 then I break out the army gear. Old stuff sucked, but the new stuff is pretty good.

Days like today, around freezing, it's just the Stich and a fleece underneath.

where are you guys thinking on Friday? I might be out on Sunday as well, possibly 2 up - Sat I'm headed out to Hamilton and possibly St. Catherines.

yes, it is finally starting to get nicer out - noticed that the low temps are starting to stabilize and slowly climb

I haven't decided where I'm heading yet. Probably just between Toronto and Barrie, west of the 400, on as many gravel roads as I can find.

Hey, if any of you circus freaks happen to be out and about near Caledon Saturday night or Sunday morning, pm me and I'll put together some grub and ale at my place. I'm just west of Bolton, 15 min south of neat, little Hockley Valley.




Acck, Phhth!

I'm heading up towards Orangeville, Creemore, Springwater, Barrie for lunch then back south through Holland Marsh on Friday to play with my gps. Anyone around want to meet up for a spin?

Hey Fin

Hmmm... inviting!, as I do not work on Fridays - but I have a few other plans already made for tomorrow. Send me your phone number and if anything changes I'll give you a buzz.

I'm expecting to ride to Picton in May, to visit my daughter.

About 4000 km round trip. Should be a good ride.

That's too bad Ridemuch. I'm wrapped up on Sat. so another day maybe. I'm working out a new sked at the office so I can work four-day weeks which should give me a whack more free time for riding this summer. Now if I could only teach my one-year-old to take care of himself...

Cheers

Hey there ZZR_Ron

Let me know when you come this way and maybe we can hook up for a bite and beer. I owe you one.

What I meant to say is that I have family near Picton and ride out that way quite a bit, maybe our skeds will allow a hookup. Keep it in mind.
