    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...

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...

    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...

    Hi gang, any recommendations for a small shop that can: 1) laser cut a metal dash bracket ( from 2-3mm steel sheet) based on a vector file? or 2) can help cut and bend an existing dash bracket to fit new application.. I assume 2) is much more common capability than 1), but thought i'd ask for...

    Motorcycle Catchers

    Tried my hand at it in Peru at this year's Dakar when someof the riders found an apparent 'shortcut' out of a river bed they were supposed to be following... A few riders didn't fair too well going up the bank... Had to get the F out of the way when a quad tried the same approach...then the ASO...

    Furnaces... Damn them!

    Furnace is acting up... Everything works, but the basement furnace won't blow hot air/activate when thermostat is in 'auto' mode... ie, even though the temp on the thermostat is clearly below the 'HOLD" or "Schedule" setting (even by 10 degrees, I tried going extreme) hot air won't kick in. I...
