    There is a certain..........activitiy I guess, which I do alone all the time. Every chance I get really. I can do this activity whenever I want. Some people do post pictures and talk about this activity on community sites which frankly I find kinda wierd. Truth be told I prefer to do this activity with someone else when the opportunity presents itself.

    It seems to me that a group of people come to this site to communicate and to feel a part of something bigger with people they have something in common with. Sometimes it helps to define us, certainly makes us feel good. I don't understand coming to a huge place like this forum and posting about rides and getting together and then getting pissed off because now theres too many people. Fuck off then. Do your shit by yourself and save the rants, derision and criticism for your cat or your mom or whomever it is you're at home alone with. This is a community - thats the fucking point. "We were here first, we started it", I don't give a fuck. Go post on Misanthropemotorcyclists.com where people know that they don't like anyone and no one likes them and yet still feel the need to get together and talk about it.

    I agree fully. :clap

    If you don't like how the ride was planned or what it is turning into don't go. Make up your own and invite only who you want to. It's quite simple.

    Thanks Gadget!


    When I showed up in Creemore, I was amazed at just how many bikes where there. Good job on the organizing guys! I was thinking about how the people of Creemore reacted to see a bunch of adventure bikes show up. Everyone was waving and smiling, I even got a nod from the OPP when leaving Creemore. It's nice when everyone rides respectfully. Good job to all those who where out. :thumb


    woohooo... looking forward to more rides as such..

    Fan-fucking-tastic as grandma used to say. I'm thoroughly bummed out that I didn't make it down this time around. Hope to see yous out at the next ride or sometime in between.

    Kawasaki 650r with no fairings or windscreen.

    I live 20 km down a gravel road so I guess a more versatile bike would have made more sense. I'm going to have "seemed like a good idea at the time" tattooed on me someday. I say it alot

    It ain't your rig, the pics have evaporated. It's possible invasive species have taken over from EmmEff's bike to his garage and spread to his home. We knew this day would come.
    We're doomed.
