    That’s really true Nick, but not only for motorcycles. I see so many people giving up on things that still have lots of life in them, like this washing machine we bought only 9 years ago.

    It’s still working but it’s loud, and there are bits of plastic that are probably from the seal off the tub bearings.

    So we could spend $1000 for another one, or fix it ourselves. Turns out it’s not that complicated. And a seal and bearing kit is only $58, on Amazon.

    I gotta meet this guy. I got lucky on e day at Woody's and he took me around and showed me his collection. I didn't ask as he likely would have told me to get stuffed. He is an interesting guy on the right day.

    Oh that's an easy quick answer - ride all of the 500 series roads.

    Also:
    Kilmarnock/Roses Bridge Rd
    County Rd 1
    Narrows Lock Rd
    Chaffey's Lock Rd
    Jones Falls Rd
    Burnt Hills Rd
    Elphin-Maberly Rd
    Bolingbroke Rd (ATTN: Crowe Lake Rd at Bolingbroke Rd bridge is out for replacement - no access to Crowe Lake Rd at that intersection)
    Buckshot Lake Rd
    Matawatchan/Centennial Lake/Calabogie Rd
    Bellamy/Peneshula/Snye/California Rd (all paved except California - worth the effort)

    This is my backyard - just got back from a 350km loop through some of these roads about an hour ago.

    You guy's should consider heading towards Barry's Bay also. Hit 511 north of Perth to Calabogie and zig-zag. to 41. Then north and east. Makes for a good full day if you're based in Perth.

    Not sure if you know it, and it's closer to 175km but there is a taco truck on hwy 2 in Long Sault on hwy 2. VERY good tacos! Long Sault Parkway was a waste of time though :(

    Not far, about 1-2 kms.
    Drif is confused - your taco truck isn't my taco truck.
    I've been through Long Sault several times this summer - I don't recall seeing yours.

    Well darn, sorry I missed it two weekends past - was out riding with my father and we took our lunch at one of the Gaetan's chip trucks.
    Would much rather have had tacos.
