Nothing against Toronto, but I hate the traffic there. The rest of Canada I can deal with, but the 401 sucks.

Hey MOTOMAC,

That's odd, the 401 is one of my favourite playgrounds.

The ROC is fine as long as its got curves.

Don't you have 16 laners in S.D.?


I grew up riding on the 401, and as long as traffic is moving right along, I get to interpret the law as I see fit.
Very low cop-to-scofflaw ratio.
Long as its not rush hour, I actually look forward to a bit of high-speed crosstown traffic-dodging.
Maybe this *gruelling ordeal* is why I took to riding in the supposedly *wild* traffic in L.A., Saudi Arabia, India and Napoli like a duck to water.

FTR, Napoli is my favourite for traffic mayhem hands down, but I really enjoyed the experience of legal lane splitting in N.A. style traffic on California's motorways.

I am waiting on two jobs in Yemen. Ought to be interesting driving amongst those crazy FFs.

(Speaking of crazy FFs, I have already invited fellow inmate JESSE JAMES to go for a "revolutionary ride" through the mountains. I'd like to see the locals' reactions to one of his creations....)




I hope I get to trade the snowy for the sandy ...

... despite all the flammable diapers.

I guess all the times I've been in Toronto, all 16 lanes were stopped/slowed to creeping. Once out of toronto, you're right the 401 moves right along!!!

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...5#post11837745

maybe this will get them moving......
Hard to believe T-O-R began in Ohio, where they are sitting with 3 feet of snow on the ground, and expecting 2 more feet this weekend.....



btw....maybe someone should have looked before sending the Egg out there....
there's 5 pages of threads for the West coast and absolutly zero Tag games going...., Southeast has 101 so far.....and more t-o-r games than anywhere...hmmmmmm

Ya know, I really am sorry I got involved in this thing. I posted it over on the ST Owners board and didn't get any SoCal takers there either. Give me an address back east and I'll ship the sucker to ya.

P.S. I think its cool as hell someone took it that far across the U.S.
Spend more time riding and less time bitching and we could do the same.. My two cents. Good day..........

Yes, moving Mr. Egg clear across the country is great, but if he is now stuck in a location with good riding weather and not moving..............

Moto, if it does not move soon, I'll send you an address.

I think I've counted thirty lanes in a few places if you include all the feeders and their exit lanes. Pretty funny to see every single one of them slow to a crawl. Mr. Egg hasn't been to the Skydome yet, eh?

Set it and forget it.
If its a safe place your job is done Mac.
Mr. Egg would be hibernating in the frozen northeast if it weren't moved outa there at the last minute.
isn't there some rule against mailing the egg? Mr 02?
Funny people we are we FFs.
