    Cheap 6x12 enclosed trailer at lowes $2600

    They were on sale for the same price around Christmas, but they actually had trailers in stock. They had the next size up (8x12 I think) on sale for $3600 (reg. $9k) in stock in Whitby that I went and checked out but decided not to pull the trigger. Seems like a great deal if you can find one

    Working with derlin

    If you're up for a drive to Courtice, I've got a small lathe in my back shop and could do them for you on a weekend. You won't get a pretty surface finish, but I would use a drill and sand paper before I paid a shop to use a lathe for 5 minutes.

    [CTV News] Motorcyclist shocked her insurance is discontinued

    Good to see this on CTV. I'm in the same boat - getting dropped by Aviva at the end of this month and had to find other insurance. 3 years on a DRZ; no claims, tickets, anything... My insurance payment has gone up 15% since the switch as well, which is rather unfortunate. I will be paying a few...

    Booking the M2 exit.

    I did mine in Oshawa last year and I remember the time slots being mostly full, but I still had a fair bit of selection. I did the test in July and I booked it sometime in mid-May, but then had to change the date a few weeks before the test and still had no issue finding a time/day that worked...

    Does anyone know where can I buy clutch lever

    RSC Clutch Lever I just put a shorty lever on the DRZ. Expensive, but probably the best clutch lever money can buy

    Who's still riding? (Fall & Winter 2018 Edition)

    Thought about getting the bike out this afternoon for a quick 20 minutes to test out all the new stuff I put on over the winter. Problem is that the DRZ is in the back shop, and our backyard still has 6 plus inches of snow, ice, and standing water, so no ride today. Maybe Friday depending on...

    General Motors Oshawa to Close

    M2 -> M Insurance Decrease?

    First of all I did a quick forum search and didn't see anything, but I have no doubt this has been discussed before. Last week I did the M2 Exit Test at the DriveTest center and passed! Yay me, right? I have a few questions about insurance now that I have my full M license. 1. Do I have to...

    Cryptocurrencies

    I bought a Dogecoin shirt back in 2015 (maybe 2014? idr) to help sponsor a Nascar car for $50k. I remember being given dogecoin and it being worth so little I would never open up an account. Looks like that few thousand I had been given is worth a few bucks now, but still not worth a whole lot.

    Costs Associated With Insuring Multiple Bikes

    I know I've seen this discussed before, but I couldn't find it in a search, so I figured I'd ask again. I'm about 85% sure I'm going to be picking up a second bike this week. I found a pretty decent deal on a DR650, which I think I could make work for the offroading and highway riding I'm...
