        Maybe we should meet up for a ride before the actual event. What do you guys think?

          I doubt I'll have time to.  Maybe for the registration night a couple days before.

            Route is now posted, same as last year:

            http://www.motorcycleridefordad.org/app/wa/mediaEntry?mediaEntryId=14451

            Registration is this Friday 4-8 PM at Polo Park Earl's.  I'll probably head there for around 6 PM from U of W as I hate pissing around in traffic.

              I decided I will regret if I don't take part in this. I have an idea...The Friday Night Lights meet is just down the street at 1661 Portage Ave. What if we meet up and go for a ride, go register at earls (maybe closer to 8 since the meet starts at 8pm) then ride over to the meet and arrive in grand fashion as a pack of tough biker dudes  :P

                  Sounds cool, I'll be taking off after I register though as I have to clean up the bike for Saturday morning and take care of stuff back home.

                    If any of you want to meet up sometime today, PM me your # so we can arrange a time/place. One of my buddies will be joining us for the event. We hope to be at Polo for 6pm, but all depends on how long it takes me to clean the bike and go to MPI for temp insurance.

                        My dad texted me this afternoon saying that he met a couple guys from Top Tier because he was riding his Vincent..

                        I'm curious who he met..

                        I'm pretty sure he was talking to 99blackSE, because one of the bikes he told me about was an SV1000

                          Yup that was me.  V-Strom and SV1K have similar power plants so we were talking about that.  The gentleman he was riding with was a guy who used to teach at the school back in our hometown.  I took a couple of pictures of the stops that I'll try and post up later.

                                  I don't think I had a chance to talk to you Murphenur as once we left the Downs I never did manage to find the rest of you again, sorry about that.  The GSXR and myself ended up waiting around at Selkirk after getting gas and we were one of the last to leave  at around 1 PM I think it was.

                                  From right in the thick of it.





                                  Shots from the parkade.  The AIR-1 chopper also had video footage of us that was played at the final stop at Cowboys.  There were some nice prizes too, too bad I couldn't stick around.





                                  I didn't take any pictures at Selkirk or Gimli of the bikes but did of the ice at Gimli.  Bloody hell that was a noticeable temperature change once past Winnipeg Beach.  We took HWY8 on the return to Lockport as it was faster and turned out to be quite a bit warmer, but windier.  We ended up hanging around with some folks from Custom One Cycle in Selkirk at lunch in Gimli.  One guy had a total sleeper Harley, 150 hp bagger...





                                  Couple pictures at Skinners...





                                  I'll be going again next year for sure, but with my supermoto.

                                        You stick out like a sore thumb with a sportbike, and wearing red is icing on the cake.  Pretty funny seeing a few sportbikes mixed in there with the cruisers.

                                          We should try and get a bunch of sports bikes out next year. I saw no more than 10 rockets the whole time.

                                              I was wondering about that when it was 9:30 and you hadn't contacted met yet heh.  Always next year.  There's a breast cancer ride too in June.
