Today I learned that I can't ride solo in the diamond lanes on the freeways.
I had always assumed it was okay until I saw a news story which said the opposite. A web search led me to a few links which confirmed that I was wrong. Apparently, it is okay on city-maintained roads in Toronto, but...
CMG: Yamaha Ténéré 700 Launch
From Canada Moto Guide yesterday: https://canadamotoguide.com/2018/05/08/yamaha-promos-tenere-700-with-round-the-world-ride/
Yamaha is going to launch a Ténéré 700 adventure bike this year.

Reposting from CMG:
MAG sounds like a pretty big outfit. This should make for a pretty big shakeup in the aftermarket marketplace
This popped up on social media last night. I don't think anybody else has linked it yet.
Based on that review, I might enjoy having one. Maybe I'll hold off for a couple of years and see how reliable it turns out to be.
I haven't taken my M test yet, so I tried to book it online today.
After I filled in my details, it sent me a confirmation e-mail which I need to click in order to continue. However, I get DNS lookup errors when I try to click it. When I telnet to another server and try the same thing, i get...

(Liquid-cooled) competition for the Yamaha Bolt, if the thing ever makes it to Canada.
edit: my bad, there was already another thread on the subject at...

A message from Bob Davies -
Robyn and I have sold our business, Davies Harley-Davidson, to Pfaff Automotive Partners, effective September 26, 2016. At that time, the dealership will become Pfaff Harley-Davidson and...
This popped up on one of my feeds last night. Offered by Rusty Wallace's organization. Looks like a great deal, though I'll probably skip it
Seems to be available at Flamboro, Delaware, Kawartha Downs or Sunset Speedway...
This story was on social media this morning. It is about someone who hears rumours of a lost motorcycle graveyard, and tracks them down to a failed business named Kohl's Cycle Salvage, in Lockport, NY. At that time, the building was still standing, and full of scrap bikes from the 1960s and...
This showed up in one of my feeds this morning. Paint that glows when it is connected to a battery. The clip shows a bike with a custom tank; it looks ok. This concept has potential, might even become the next flavour of the month (although I imagine a nightmare result when the advertising...
