    Hey Guys, as the holidays are approaching, I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Like many of you I have a long list of motorcycle parts that I want for Christmas. Fortnine and Twisted throttle will have a nice Christmas season I'm sure ;). I'm looking forward to grabbing some High Octane Eddnog and watching some great MotoVlogging on YouTube over the break. All the best over the holidays, keep it safe and happy. Cheers

    A very Merry Christmas to all my fellow ADV'ers !!

    Sure did enjoy our get together a while back at Smittys. Maybe after the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over we should join forces again.
    I'm escaping the winter for a short Mexican holiday early Jan.....but later in the month if there's interest :))

    If I were to toss a bike in the truck, how far south would I have to go to get in a week on the bike? Have the last 2 weeks of January off. HOHOHO

    I think it will come down to when you leave. I have ridden from Kansas City one year, (They have a really cool underground place to store your vehicle), and another year I had to ride to Texas and it was still 3 degrees.

    Phoenix will be warm enough. As soon as you head up into altitude things change quickly. There could be snow and freezing temperatures.
    Watch the extended forecast.

    Great start to 2020. New Years Day ride at Breezy Point with a few friends. Nice tight, low speed RR track, super nice weather.
    Happy New Year fellow ADVers !! FB_IMG_1577980094500.jpg 006.jpg

    The provincial government doesn’t want to touch the cash cow.... nor do they want to see all the jobs effected. (That costs votes)

    Two days south of here and you’re almost guaranteed weather nice enough to ride in.

    I live in a condo and have my bike in the commercial parkade; I have been doing loops.

    If only I could convince my wife to let me go for a few weeks! I'd like to ride to Cabo!
