    I have an open weekend coming up and wondered if any of you wanted to get out for a ride.


    I'm open to suggestions. Maybe coffee at Belfountain and then from there...Lunch at Mono Cliffs.. you know, the usual.

    Sat or Sun is fine.. or both!

    Any interest?

    Craig and I were thinking of doing something Sunday up in that area. Anyone else interested? I'm itching to do some trails again.

    Looking like a few of us are going to try to meet on Sunday at 10 for coffee in Belfountian (43.79424, -80.01436). We'll ride that area afterwards. Should be great weather.

    Hope to see you out there.

    That sounds about right...still expensive I agree, but we live in Ontario where insurance rates are known to be ridiculous and unjustified in comparison to everywhere else. For comparison sake, I'm paying about $200 more than you on my GSA. 1 minor ticket 2 years ago and 34 years of riding experience.

    There's a couple of threads in the Canada forum that really cover the whole insurance thing and what everyone is paying.

    Last night I'm riding on 16th avenue in Markham sitting at a light when a guy on a KTM 990 lane splits, pull's ahead of me when the light goes green spinning his wheel shooting dirt at me and then does a wheelie as far as I can see him. This is actually the second time I've seen him and I have no idea what's up with this guy? If anyone see's him get pulled over by the popo please take a picture for me.

    You need to keep the rev's up and feather the clutch on the launch. Those KTM's are slow off the line, with a little practice you should be able to beat him to the next light.....:wink:

    While waiting for the Indy Mile to start, I was wandering around the Indiana State Fair and came across this contraption that some of you (who will remain nameless) may find ``interesting``
