    Ontario was HOT today !!

    What a nice day, but the temptress is trying to seduce us, do not fall for it my little ones, do not fall in her grasp - Winter is not over yet.....

    Went for a ride around the block, just the helmet - no ATGATT. I know, I know....

    God, the RT can fly !! - I ramble, be gone Winter

    Pilled on the ATGATT, wobbled up the gravel driveway and hit the ashphalt with the rear tire spinning...straightned her up and woooosh...up the road I went!

    What a rush, March 07! I have been out in Jan/Feb before but those were real flukes. Today was a wonderful break from the winter blahhhhhssss.

    4-5 other bikes at the local Tim's so smiles all around. Back home and renew the dino so ready for the 'real' season to begin. Another month should really see the backside of winter thru the door...

    Haven't pulled mine out of storage yet. I was thinking the last week of March / first week of April. BMW Toronto is planning a group ride on March 21, may be a little optimistic but I am hoping...

    I guess there are some hardships connected with living in God's country.

    Not "ALL" Is well down South

    As I will be attending the Georgia Rally the first week of May, I've been in touch with some of thier members. Just recieved an email saying they got 7 inches of snow and no hydro for two days. This was just north of Atlanta Ga. I say......hahahahaha.

    The new issue of Cycle Canada has an article on Friday the 13th. That's Friday February the 13th, 2009.

    Nice write up.

    Fellow Ontarians:

    There's six of us in this thread and only one of gvpurvis.

    What say we all go down to Alabama(in July), beat up on him and steal his beer eh?

    Just kidding but I am jealous.

    Awoke to only a dusting of snow this morning in S.W. Ontario. Spring must be getting close. Haven't seen any robins yet.

    Thumbs up

    Meet me at LuLu's in Gulf Shores and I'll buy the beer.The beach in July is great for seafood and girl watching.LuLu's (Jimmy Buffetts sister)has some of the best fried shrimp and oysters around.Or if that is not casual enough,there is always the Flora-Bama on the beach.

    Fellow Ontarians be careful out there. Seems like car drivers are not quite ready for us yet. A middle aged man riding a scooter was seriously injured this morning while attempting a left turn. Bad, very bad. The BMW automobile sustained some serious damage when it struck the light pole.

    Road closed for 4 hours (7:30 to 11:30 am)

    It happened right by my work.
