    New Blog, Dirt-Riding Oriented

    Hey gang, I thought I'd share my new website and blog, assembled during 8 weeks of lock-down. I'm planning to use the site to share thoughts, videos and content focused on various moto-related experiences that keep me busy throughout the year. The merch on the site is designed by yours truly...

    Introduction to offroad riding

    Threadamortus? :eek: On a constructive note... has anyone ridden the Creemore area this year (Orchard Hill, Back of Mansfield hill, concession road allowances, etc... that are usually part of ODSC's Creemore ride) to be able to share the conditions? These are really the only 'somewhat legal'...

    Ganaraska Forest is Closed Until further notice

    I agree that it's silly and inconsistent to close the forest entirely. Most mountain bike trails (like Dagmar, not far from the Ganny BTW) have posted notices that while parking is closed and the areas ares are un-maintained/policed, mountain biking and responsible hiking activity is permissible...

    Is it summer yet? Dreaming of Bethany

    Hey gang, I'm already suffering from winter blues so started editing some footage from the summer. Here's an overview of ODSC Bethany Ride - the season opener ride for many... Is it summer yet? Let me know what you think!

    Ganaraska's Lookout Hill closed due to erosion

    ...hopefully Ganaraska authorities have a plan for rehabilitating that area, not just throw up a "No Motorized Vehicles" signs and leaving it for years, like they've done with the other hills that were eroded in the past few years.

    Marmora mine to Bancroft

    The only pass I buy is OFTR and Gananraska, and that is only to support the overall efforts in Ontario and be legal in my main weekday riding area (I ride the Ganny at least 3x per month, well into November). Everywhere else, I just carry cash and when stopped by a warden pull a long face after...

    Machinist for small bike jobs?

    Hey guys, does anyone know a machinist that can do small touch-up jobs? I have a brake lever set that does not account for the the collar of the spacer/sleeve and also for some reason has the return spring slot cut too narrow... hoping to get those cut in / enlarged so not to have to throw out...

    Backroad adventure

    Interesting set of roads... how much if a road is Arcol? Is it proper dirt road traveled by cottagers or wide trail, similar to Pencil lake road for instance? Hydro Line Road makes it sounds like hydroline trails, which sounds exciting...

    ADV and Enduro Riding in Ontario

    Thought I'd start doing something with all the riding footage hopelessly accumulating space on my OneDrive. Here's the first attempt from a weekday ride in Ganaraska Forrest. Let me know what you think!

    2020 Yamahas

    Maybe we'll get a street-able WR450R before the T700 comes to North American dealerships... ...that would be the day.

    Green Plate Petition

    Email sent! HOWEVER it would be nice to give GREEN and BLUE plate bikes the same access/rights as ATVs a number of trails in Ontario are still 'ATV Only'. In fact, really don't know why ATV and OFTR associations are separate entities. Both activities are so similar and deal with the same land...

    Beta RRS Motorcycles Street Legal?

    They are legally set-up with MTO as Blue Plate, but insurance database still has them classified as off-road vehicles.... So, you can register them with blue plate at the MTO/DMV no problem, but some insurance conpanies will have them listed as a dirt bike only (the agent will get allmconfused...

    Easter Weekend Bethany Ride 2019

    This Rain / Snow combo we're enjoying this aft. is making me feel I should not cheap out and replace my 1/2 worn tires before the 20th! This means I have 19days to ditch the studs and kill off the current rubber... :)
