Ayton fun day show and shine

Hi all...I've been away for a while and just noticed I put the wrong date for the show and shine. It should be Saturday, July 23rd. I hope to get up to the Pembroke area this summer and could go through Ottawa and up to Smith Falls if it happens then I'll try to get in touch with those here. Lonewolf

For me at least there isn't that much of a difference in price. A 650 is a good size to start with .... as you...

I never try to figure in the differences in our dollars but gas here in Ont. went up to $.91/liter or $3.46/gallon....and they say it's going up over a dollar a liter by summer!! Why do we keep giving free food and medical supplies to the oil producing countries?

hi...I don't know Ohio but if you are going on 2-4 day trips you should shoot up through your state to Michigan etc. and cruise along the great lakes...even into southern Ontario...lots of gorgous senery along the way. :)

Well, it does involve others. Seat belts have been proven to reduce injuries in car accidents. It's a lot easier for taxpayers, who foot the bill on your medical costs if you're in an accident (God forbid), to pay for a couple broken bokes and whatnot versus you being ejected from the vehicle and ha...
