Naw. It's gonna be warm and sunny. We're in -southern- Ontario, remember?

Smile A true optimist!

Hope the weather is perfect for youse guyz up there in Kanuckistan next weekend. Down here in the Misty Mountains of WNY I don't think we'll see good riding weather till the middle or end of the month which really sucks. I've been trying to make it up to Ont for this ride for the last few years but something always gets in the way. Hoping to run into that Faulkner guy from FLA someday so we can swap lies. Say hi for me if he shows up.

I was intending to arrange one but have so much going on in my life that I can't take on the responsibility.

Cool Bancroft?

Are you serious about a Bancroft run next weekend?
I was up in North Bay last weekend and they still have a foot of snow!
Might be a wet & chilly run.

But hey...we're Canadian 'eh.

You obviously need to give up sleeping.

Get your priorities in order!

Thumbs up May? Well, I will be there for the Ides.

I have arranged accomodation for my bride of 25 years and my dog of almost 5, starting on the Ides of May, that's May 15 by modern reckoning, and ending when July ends. We will be reasonably near Davisville Station.

I look forward to seeing y'all in that interval, which spans much or all of Ontario's summer, but I expect to be riding a smaller motorcycle than usual, because I find loading and unloading a Wee-Strom to and from a trailer to be a very very daunting task. 3 score and ten, ya know.

But I surely enjoy the ride to Windermere, and if nobody else arranges such a ride, I will do that myself. And I will swim. So do not expect me before Victoria Day,okay?

Keith, yes, looking forward to riding some with you this summer, even if you are on your wee (not Wee) bike.

Edit: to stay on topic, sure hoping for a traditional Spring Ride. They are fun.
