    Not in Kingston, but Richmond Motorsports in Richmond Ontario has a dyno and they know how to use it.

    The gravel back roads were awesome today. Well watered, fresh tires mounted, turn and burn.

    Got lucky, and Pancho was open, got fresh tacos for lunch. Only taco truck I know of within 150 kms.

    Pancho's tacos, Balderson. West side of 511, couple doors south of Fallbrook rd. Find him on FB, his hours are irregular so I've found, I took a chance today, scored.

    I ride to eat. I have the gpx bikes from the last two RTE/USA challenges. Hundreds of places like this to eat, sadly only for the States.

    Since I tend to wander when I'm riding, I'll pop up a map with these places some times, "since I'm in the area". :dukegirl

    The chip truck just up the road from the esso in Bancroft is cash only, and good.

    Open every day, I think. She just announced on FB that the last weekend of this month was it for the season.

    New one opened on hwy 2 just east of Prescott - called Pinatas. I've tried the burritos and the tacos, both are good. Salsa is home made and spicy.

    Not truck food but on a ride a couple of weeks ago stopped in Prescott for lunch and found this place on the east end of the main drag on highway 2. Bobby's on the left side best pizza I have had in a while.

    They've been doing good business for a bunch of years now, didn't know they had good pizza because we usually buy from Papa Larry's on the next block.
    Thanks for the tip, we'll give them a try next time.

    We've also got one of the best chinese food restaurants in Canada - no joke, the Wok House has excellent food.
    Our pub restaurant took a huge nosedive in quality recently unfortunately, so we can't recommend the one across from Bobby's.

    I've heard the little coffee shop on the west end of town has good quality coffee and snacks.
    As you can see from my avatar tag, I'm with @Drif10 when it comes to riding.

    We both ride to eat and eat to ride lol. And thanks for the tip I guess a run down the parkway is in order especially nice in the fall when the summer crowd is gone.

    In case you locals missed it elsewhere (and we can't have that :rofl), here's my latest video. Careful out there - you wouldn't want to be squashed by the mighty Cavalcade.:imaposer
