Sonny and Cher are in the building

I've got you Babe, pretty hard to tell the difference between Larry and the real Cher. Great party by the lake last Saturday.

Baysville Car & Boat Show for our Sunday Ride

The day looked great to start the ride off and we did manage to get to Baysville without getting wet. Over lunch, the skies opened up with quite the downpour and the air was as humid as a sauna. The first picture is what wealthy folk spend $275,000 on, this is a brand new boat with a Corvette engine. The second picture at the Bala Falls. See more pictures in the Photo gallery. From Baysville, everyone seemed to be parked all over the place so it was difficult to arrange a route home as a group. Four of us chose to head up to Bala and across Muskoka #38 with a side trip along South Bay Road before returning home.

Friday the Thirteenth

Excellent turnout for the Port Dover Ride on Friday the Thirteenth. Some members went down the day before and stayed over, 15 of us went down for the day, while others went down on the Friday and stayed over Friday night. My experience as a lead rider coming home suggests that my capabilities in that capacity are flawed. Leaving Port Dover I could see bikes behind me in the rear view mirror, sad to say it was just a different group that was following me. Oh well, everyone arrived home safe. See some pictures that Jim Wright and Blanka sent me this morning. Only in Port Dover you say. More pictures in the gallery.

Wasaga Beach

Another great turnout for a short Wednesday night ride to Wasaga Beach. One problem on the way home with Luc having a rear tire blowout on a fairly quiet farm road north of Phelpston. Thanks to cell phones and Larry Purdy that had a CAA plus card, Luc was picked up less than a hour later on a flat bed truck and transported home. No injuries from this unfortunate occurance due to some skillfull manoeuvrering by Luc who ended up with the front wheel down the ditch at the side of the road.

Classic Car Night in Barrie

   Last Wednesday evening was a short ride to see the Classic Cars in Barrie. Quite an impressive collection of these precious cars to view and enthusiastic owners to chat with. Here is a picture of one of our member's standing next to a Cobra.
   Sunday's ride took us north on hwy. 11 and east on hwy. 117, one of the most scenic roads we have in this area, through Baysville and Dorset to the Firehall Restaurant on hwy. 35 for a very enjoyable lunch. From here, Barb and I had to get our Granddaughter back to Parry Sound, so broke away from the group on hwy.118 up through Bracebridge, and Rosseau clocking up over a 400 kms, day.
