    Nice day for a change, so off I went for a ride. Ended up North of Buckingham.

    Hold the Mayo.

    "The heat let up today, so I hit the trifecta of hydrolines! Cedar Hill, Camifornia and Triple Tower capped of a great 300km Friday ride!"

    Hey juames or anyone else able to point me in the right direction to do the above ride?

    California Rd east of Tamworth??

    Thanks

    Probably the California road near White Lake.

    Bike thieves are despicable. Keep an eye out for this bike stolen in Brockville. [​IMG]

    Bike thieves need a kick in the balls with a frozen boot.

    Apologies if this has been asked before, but since Jesse McGrath left for Oz, who is the best BMW tech in the area? Asking for a rider on the road having final drive issues.

    Thanks!

    I'm not saying that OGC isn't good ... just that I have no experience with them. And I can't find any other independent BMW techs online.

    I would keep researching before using OGC.

    Got out for a good ride up to the Opinicon for lunch today with Stephanie on her R3.

    I took some dirt roads while she stuck to the pavement at one point.

    What a nice change in the weather![​IMG]

    @juames I love California and Triple Tower. Which hydroline is "Cedar Hill"? The last pic looks like Bellamy to Carbine Rd. section. Thought that was posted private property at Bellamy entrance?

    Ottawa Goodtime Centre is the worst. Bad prices, bad service. Anyone is better than them in my opinion.

    Hey, anyone on a Triumph lose a saddlebag somewhere around Orleans? I was at a garage sale and the guy had for sale a Triumph bag he saw fall off, but he wasn't able to get it back to the rider as he or she didn't stop or come back for it. I have no idea when this is supposed to have happened.

    Still in decent shape, and probably cost a lot to buy in the first place.

    Reply here or message me if you or someone you know might have lost it.

    Lost: Tools and Tool tube

    I was checking out the part of the Semi Aggressive D-S route for the Boogie today but my tools didn't come home with me. This is a Black plastic tube about 3, 1/2" around and about a foot long. It's probably gone deep into a ditch somewhere but just in case anyone here spots it please let me know. It has a BMA sticker on the end cap and some tools that will be a pain to replace. I was riding mostly south of Lavant on the K&P, Lavant mill Rd., Ranger Camp Rd., Umpherons Mill Rd., Germmils Rd., Lodore Rd., Sugarbush Way, Cossesion Rd. 10d, Lanark 2nd Concession A, Sheridan Rapids Rd., Bathurst Line E, and New Road. These were the rougher roads but It could have broken off its mounts on a bump on just about any road I was on today.
    Thanks,
    Terry

    Hey Juames,
    New to this forum and the Ottawa area. Just wondering what area you are referring to in the post. Looks awesome, and something I could manage on my DRZ-400. I don't mind driving a ways out either. I've mostly been doing Limerick, Larose and Marlborough forests, but looking for a little change. The pictures you posted look like just the right thing.
    Thanks!
    Francois
