Find the Strom location (Canada)

My Brother Gerhard (whose user name here is "Gerhard") suggested this:

Post a picture of your V-Strom in a unique scenic area and see if other can find the spot. Ideally you should go to the spot and take a picture of your Strom there.

rules:

-If you know the spot don't blab it out and ruin it for others. If you know the location, send a private message to the original poster.

-(Gerhard or anyone else, How should we do hints? GPS co-ords? It's a big world out there..)

2015 DL1000 New July 2015 200,000+ km, 125,000 miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Ontario - Public transit

Found this streetcar to nowhere this weekend:



Clues:

Be a Pusey, Scout it out, I think it's closer from the other side but not nearly as much fun.

They do something like this on another motorcycle forum I'm a member of. They call it "Motorcycle Tag" and the idea is that you post a pic of your bike with something in the background. Someone else has to ride to the location, take a pic with their bike in the photo and then post another pic of a different location and their bike.

They give clues like plays on word with the road name or town name or other such hints. I don't know if you could have V-Strom people from across Canada do this but Ontario-wide would be reasonable enough.......until someone parks their Strom infront of the Muskie statue in Kenora on a cross country tour. It'd make for a bit of a ride to get the game going again.

I have no idea where that old TTC streetcar is though.

Okay I added a clue.. I don't know whether I'm
being too obvious or too cryptic.

Sturgeon: maybe a hint?

Just itching to see where the streetcar is! Think I know where Sturgeon's pic was taken. Hope the locations are eventually posted to answer these questions.

The sad thing is that I know I've seen the streecar, but damned if I can remember where. Not even a general area. Either I'm gettin' too old, or I've been too many places, or both :rolleyes:

Gerhard,

I'm actually surprised you haven't seen it as I know you have been in the area!
