At this point it looks like the only way I ride is borrowing a bike. Maybe I'll drive the MG as a support vehicle.

Tagging up.  Don't know what I can do yet just yet.
Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

Yes, and for planning purposes, everyone east of Dennis should post here.

sounds good Dave.  I think the title of this thread needs to get modified to help eastern/Canadians realize that this is where the planning is.

Just got Oliver back on the road. No Vetter stuff on yet, my faring bracket is broken and needs to be welded back together.  I'm doing a Summer School run again this summer, July 14 - Aug 14, Mon. - Thur. , so if it happens during that time I'm only good for 3 day weekends.  Field trip on Aug 6 and Aug 28.  Just let me know what and where.

P.S. Here's my two current rides. Oliver and The Baron.

Danny,

Tell her to get another one.  There are plenty out there and pretty cheap as well.  Not to mention a blast to drive! ;D
