I grew up in the country where we had a hole in the screen door to put the rifle through to get the coyotes. I also learned how to load bullets from my grandpa. Learned how to shoot a rifle when I was 8 and was taught proper safety from the beginning. Guns have their purpose. As long as they are use...

Hope you heal up quick Wrider! :getwellsoon:


I went into the city and bought a Joe Rocket jacket. Love it! The best part was it was free with a gift certificate that I got for running the Ladies' golf night out by our house.

A friend and I went to bike night in Lacombe. I met Doris Maron, the lady that travelled the world on her Magna. Very cool lady and her bike has had a facelift with some very nice artwork on the tank.

Personally, I think if you are a woman on a bike, you don't really have to do anything to intimidate people. A woman in, traditionally a man's sport, just has a certain "don't mess with me" aura. 8) I personally like to wink at the little boys in their little cars and then waste them off the line. :...

Be careful, sometimes the voice tells you to have another piece of cheesecake.

It's okay to listen to that voice - the second piece never has any calories! :lol:

Thanks BuzZz. The vet doesn't think it's epilepsy, but hopefully just a one time freak thing. Hyde is very good at taking pills luckily, just stick it in a hot dog or piece of cheese and he has no clue. I going out to golf now, hitting things will probably make me feel a bit better... plus a few coc...

Sit on all of the ones you have listed plus a few more just for fun. You've taken the course so you have some idea of what you did and didn't like about the bikes you learned on. There is no right first bike (although there is probably a lot of wrong first bikes) but none on your list are out of ran...

Have you ever tried the Space Bag travel bags? They are awesome. Just like the bags that you vacuum down but they have a 1 way valve at one end so you just put your clothes in a roll the air out. It takes up less than half the space and an added bonus is your clothes are protected if it rains.
