Good to get out for a ride today. First of the year. Other than getting out of the driveway it was a beautiful day!

good on ya, Forseti

Someone local has to ride. My wife and I enjoyed a nice walk to the library instead. Although I did buy some new warm waterproof gloves yesterday at GP bikes in Whitby for my upcoming summer trip back to Newfoundland.
Take care and enjoy 2013

It was good to finally meet you today. Don't care for your riding mate though.

Get a reusable filter and just carry your coffee in a container, you can carry more that way, in less space.
Get an aero press coffee maker. Knocks the socks off any kureig thingamajigit. And it doesn't draw anything:)

The next time you come through my neighbourhood Gord, let me know. We'll get some lunch & maybe a pint at a local pub.

Okay, winter is finally getting serious, so I yanked the driveshaft out of the bike this morning, and it's in the mail to Bruno for a preventative rebuild.

Little bike only for the next 3 weeks. The one time I wish it would snow.

Finally got around to ordering an HID kit - spent an enjoyable couple hours in front of the wood stove playing with wire and heat shrink making up two proper replay harnesses for it - but too cold to install on bike last night.

Not gonna get any warmer for a while, either.

You guys wanna drag your bikes over here, you're welcome to use my tools, and more importantly, heated garage.

I may need that heated garage!

My shop....*sigh*....is still not ready, and I've given in to temptation and signed up for Sandblast again. My KTM is still broken and has not been run since the Paris-Dacre rally!

Luckily it has been warm enough recently that I had enough time to change some wheel bearings, swingarm heim joint bearing, fix a bit of wiring, and install the new Scotts upper triple. Still needs a new set of Flexx bars, valve check/adjust, brake/coolant service, and make sure the damn thing still runs.

Anyone in Kingston want to buy some cool moto jeans

Brand new with tags - I ordered the wrong size for my fat ass...I can send back but figured if anyone is interested I'll sell for my cost (ludicrously high $350 CND), less $30 to ship them back.

Kevlar lined with armour - size 32" waist. Very well made and much cooler than me anyway....see link for info
