    Anybody tired of the Teacher's Strikes?

    I have no kids in school so the current union shenanigans are not directly impacting me. I am growing increasingly tired of the whining, media coverage, and the 'save the children' message used to camouflage greed. Do we even need unions anymore?

    One of my kids has a few tickets, before we go shopping for insurance I'm trying to find out which date shows up on the MTO abstract. One of his tickets was earned in Dec 2015 but didn't end up getting settled until Nov 2017. Which date is the Ins company going to find on his abstract? What...

    Lightest smallest bike available

    I'm looking for a the smallest, lightest bike/moped/scooter I can find. I wish I could find a reasonably priced Motocompo -- that would fit the bill -- but they are too collectible and I'm not willing to pay $5k for a 40 year old scooter. Will be used as a grocery-getter when travelling. I...

    VW Warranty nightmare!

    My daughter drives a 2011 VW Jetta, the car is in immaculate condition with about 100,000km. VW offers a 12 year corrosion warranty however it's seems impossible to get a dealer to look at it. PFAFF service told me they are booking inspections for May next year and the repair would take more...

    It looks like GTAMOTORCYCLES has signed up with VigLink (Sovrn Commerce) to monetize words typed in user posts. Not sure I like the idea of a discussion form making money off content created by users. Thoughts? Read more: about VigLink at VigLink - Wikipedia

    Where is the Media afterwards?

    The media has been great at reporting downed riders this year, how about some pressure to followup on the bad guys? Sure the crash is sensational, but how about a little work to raise awareness of the penalties and victim suffering? The number of left lane injuries and kills is sickening...

    Left Lane Loafers - Watch This

    There has been some debate over running the speed limit in a left lane on a highway and whether that's OK to hog as long as you are doing the speedlimit. Here's the OPP spokesman guidance on the subject. It looks like the OPP is pretty clear -- if someone is passing you on the right you are...

    What do OPP Ride?

    I'm asking because a friend just got pulled over charged with Stunt Driving. The OPP rider was using a handheld radar and said he clocked him at 160 then 162 at the 707/Warden underpass. When I do the math using data for the police special HD, he would have needed <10-15km to catch a car at...

    Why I'd buy another Yamaha

    I've had several Yamaha's over the years and had nothing but great experiences on my Yammies. My TW200 was fun to ride around the city, perfect urban Toronto speeds, light and easy to move in city traffic and and $10 worth of fuel would get me 300km. In 25,000 KM the only thing I ever did to...
