Last Sunday's Ride to Buckhorn

16 bikes left Arby's for the ride through Lindsay to Buckhorn on a beautiful sunny day that gradually changed to overcast skies and a light sprinkle of rain on the way back to Orillia. Lunch at the Main Street Landings turned out fairly good for the ones that got served, but four of us ended up walking out after waiting close to an hour with no food in sight. The ice cream store across the road was real handy though.

Haugan's in Port Perry

12 bikes turned out for last Wedneday night Ride. Decided on the Classic Car Night at Haugan's in Port Perry. Car show was a little dissapointing with only a sprinkling of classic cars in attendance and the whole event was over about half an hour after we arrived. Here are a couple of pictures showing the best of both sides of the Atlantic Pond.

Sunday Ride to Thornbury

Seems like I confused Thornbury with Thornton. What do you expect from an old guy who forgets his name from time to time. 19 bikes showed up for this great ride with Bill and Lou meeting us in Stayner and Steve Shane catching up to us after a late start. Lunch in Thornbury was excellent before following the Georgian Bay shoreline back through Wasaga Beach to see what a parking lot looks like that was actually the road in to the beach. Totally missed a huge rain storm that had recently passed through only to catch up with it in Moonstone. Oh well, nobody melted.

Biker's Reunion 2010

Perfect weather for this year's Biker's Reunion at new Liskeard last weekend. Thirteen member's of our Chapter showed up for this event for all or part of this fantastic weekend. About 250-300 rider's went on the "Early Bird Ride" on the Friday through Haileybury, Cobalt, Latchford ending in Temagami for a snack and some good social time. Saturday was a day of many activities in New Liskeard including dirt bike jumps and Mr. Rocket Man. Our Chapter went on a short ride over to Quebec past rolling farm land with neat well kept farm houses for lunch in Ville-Marie. Sunday was the Freedom Ride to the Cancer hospital then on through many small friendly town's for about 160 kms. The reception we received from the local people made us all feel proud to be biker's. Here are a few pictures with lots more by clicking on "Biker's Reunion 2010 Pictures" under Chapter 523 on the right hand side of this page. Any member's wishing to join us next year, please contact me as soon as possible to secure your camp site.
