    I've heard it said that anything over 25 horsepower is just wheel spin anyway. How do you like the Grom?

    We both love them :smile6 They are a giggle to ride. The_Filly took over my 2017, so I had to go buy another & snapped up a 2018 last fall for what I think was a good deal at Rocky Mountain Powersports. Have done a ride from Okotoks to Black Diamond by the back route, for a coffee @ Tims. Mechanically & Safety wise, both are identical; any mods done to one, the other gets (K&N, Admore aux Lighting., heated grips etc) Cosmetically they are different; The_Filly's Grom will not be getting side cases, new seat (she doesn't want them) but she does have different colours & sizes on some of her options (hand guards, top case).

    This is The_Filly's 1st bike (she has thousands of KM behind me) & she is in love with the bike. We took them over Powderface Trail in late October (put them in the back of the truck) & they handled fine on the gravel roads, but it was a COLD day. It's not an intimidating bike to learn on (hell she took her road test on it) & people who see us out together always do a dbl take

    I have motor kits to up the power, just a bit, but they are not installed as of yet, as I am unemployed & the fuel commander stuff is a bit pricey. If you like to add "farkles" they can be a money pit :lol3 but at such a low "entry price" who cares

    I never heard of a Tim’s closing due lack of business , but this one did ; they had the numbers in the summer months but not winter .

    I was shocked when I moved to Alberta & found out that many closed at 11:00 pm; think it was more of a staffing issue, than a customer issue. There was one Tim's location, IIRC, in Nobelton (North of Toronto on highway 27) that closed @ 10:00 or 11:00

    Oh wow - that was from the summer of 2011.
    Back then the coffee was still drinkable.
    Haven't been to a Tim Hortons in a couple of years, the quality finally dropped below even my very low threshold of tolerability.
    Not exaggerating, every other option is much better - McD's, Country Style, Starbucks, gas stations, random mud puddles.

    I heard the same thing, from a very well informed source. I don't drink coffee so makes no difference to me.

    They've had issues like that here in Goose Bay a few times. Their response was to close the dining room at night, leaving only the drive though open from something like 9pm-6am.

    Trying to find enough people to staff a busy Tim's has got to be a nightmare for managers. I don't think our local Tim's would survive without people from the Philippines.

    Went for a little scoot on the Groms today, taking the back roads from Okotoks to Turner Valley & then into Black Diamond for an Iced Cap. On the big hills we would lose 40 kmh!!! need to get the big bore kits installed with re-flashed ECU
