    A little short notice, but I'll be at the Kelsey's on Woodlawn tonight around 7:45-8:00 for a pint or two. Anyone is welcome to join and talk bikes!
    Just look for the big guy with dark hair, goatee and glasses.
    I'll be sitting at the bar with a buddy.

    Cheers,
    David

    Maybe a little late notice, but tomorrow isn't supposed to be too bad so I figured I'd head out for a rip in the early afternoon. Anyone care to join?
    Meet at the Timmies on Woodlawn and Victoria around 1:00pm?

    Just reading this now, I can't make it. Still have to get mine out of "storage" and change fluids etc. My Dad passed away last month so I'm a little behind in many many areas otherwise I'd love to.

    Sorry I wasn't able to make it today. Life got in the way again. Too bad as it was so nice out.

    Friday is going to have some great weather! Anyone up for a ride in the mid to late afternoon? I'm flexible, anything after 1:00 works.

    I will have to see what is going on that day, but I may be in for that. Haven't even started the bike yet though.

    While the temp looks nice it looks like 70% chance of rain too... I'll likely be riding back from Guelph to Waterloo regardless...

    Geez, you people and your 'jobs'....
    I'm 33 and semi-retired! Work Tuesday to Thursday every week so every weekend is a 4-day long weekend! :glee:
    And a handful of times throughout the summer I teach the Safety Course at the University. I can't believe I get paid to teach and ride a bike all day!!

    There is a word for people like you......
    I'm not going to repeat that word but I'm sure there is one.
    Not jealous at all.
    Do you just teach the safety course or do you do advanced riding courses as well?

    What word is that? I'm sure I've heard it all before!
    I've taken the advanced course, but I only teach the Safety Course.

    Well, the wind was a bitch but I managed to keep it between the ditches!
    Maybe one of you fine folk can join me on Monday for a ride out to New Dundee. I've got to swing by Twisted Throttle to pick up a few things.

    Wow, I had no idea we had a twisted throttle around here...and I've lived here for like...30 years. I'd take you up on it, but I get outta work at 4:00. Which is getting kinda late when they close at 5:00.

    The company was called A Vicious Cycle but they were bought out by Twisted Throttle a couple of years ago. I think they officially refer to themselves as 'A Vicious Cycle, A Twisted Throttle Company'. They sell everything Twisted Throttle does through their website plus they've got a store in New Dundee which they just expanded.

    Every Tuesday at the Burrito Boyz in Port Credit (Mississauga) there is a bike night. I'll be heading down tonight, leaving Guelph around 6:00pm as soon as I'm done work.
    Anyone is welcome to join me!
