    Guddam Canadians. Never been to Montreal. I think they would stop me at the border checks there. Them fukken FLQ radical basterds would not like me. Welcome to the wide world of insanity and alcohol induced bravado and self glorification. Albeit this, a little late. But I have an excuse. I am on the west cost and way behind you guys on the clock.

    I hope that before I croak and become compost, I will get out to Quebec for a tour. Farthest I have been east is TOronto. I spent a few years there one day back when I was in my early 20's.

    Just ordered a 520 ZVMX DID chain and superlite 45T rear sprocket. Can't wait to feel how much of a difference it will make

    My daughter, my brother and I are seriously considering attending the Canadian Formula 1 race there in Montreal this June, any inside advice?

    Also, welcome to the forum.

    Book early! Hotels dry up fast and things are hella expensive during that week. But it is quite a spectacle. Even locals usually flock downtown to take in the festivities. If you ride up, we should set-up a meet! ;)

    To all the others, welcome to the forum. Too bad we just got soooooo much snow. I remember a year where I rode on March 25th. I think we won't have our bikes out for at least another month. Stupid groundhogs! ;)

    Before moving to MTL I lived in the Niagara region for a few years. My observation, is people in Toronto are slightly kinder drivers, but make stupid mistakes (a LOT), and people in Quebec are hyper-aggressive. Using your turn-signal in Quebec is akin to telling the other drivers you're better than them, and therefore they now must challenge you to a duel of speed.

    Come to Vancouver. It is an adventure for sure. We experience driving habits familiar all over the world.

    I'm originally from Vancouver, and yes, I know what (and where) you're talking about. Fun times.
