    Cold

    Snow and cold here too. Never thought of this area as midwest! Have-not province and in the midwest, eh. We need to really change the way we see ourselves.

    Anyone else going to the MMIC show this weekend? I'll be there Sat. pm.

    Anyone else delay preparing the bike for the winter? Was hoping for a few nice days to take the bike out for the pre-winter ride in December. This to warm up the bike to change fluids, etc. Now will have to do it in the cold

    Been away from the forums for a while, new job etc., and I would have to agree as to why the F*** Ontario got lumped in to "Midwest". There is no midwest in Canada. Ontario is East. Who decided we were midwest???

    I guess out here in Alexandria, ( east of Maxville, south of the 'Senators'...), that puts us in the 'Eastern region of the Mid-West'...or whatever. Does it really matter ?
    My brother lives in Early Iowa so at least we are in the same region, just a 3 SOLID day drive west...

    Yea, why is there not a CANADA forum. Nothing against our neighbors to the South, you guys and gals have some great riding roads but there should be enough Canukleheads on this site to warrant our own section eh. How aboot it?

    I also think Midwest is a poor choice. Central seems more appropriate. I know that Ontario does not want to be identified with the West..... and it doesn't want to be identified with Quebec either..... and I really know, even though we share the same waters, that Ontario does not want to be identified with Atlantic Canada aka The East. So, Central certainly seems much more suitable than ..... say, 'Upper Canada' - Bob
