Did the run a couple of years back in October. 35 degree, sleet mixed with rain and 50 m.p.h. gusting winds. Not to crowed at all, and the vendors were already packing up by late afternoon. Gotta dress for it though!

This is probably the closest I will get to riding this Friday January 13/12

Very mild sunny day here in Ontario

Friday there is a snowfall of 5-10cms forecast, I will probably have the snowblower out instead (for the first time this year)

Pete: The Sporty is sure looking good. i've been in touch with IronMick regarding the possibility of doing Port Dover. I believe your Canadian weather forecast is every bit as gloomy as ours. Still might try, I need to ride somewhere.

Default The Irony of it all

The so called winter of 2011/2012 here in Southern Ontario Canada has not yet materialized, that is until today, Friday the 13th.

I'm about an hour from Port Dover Ontario

I don't think there will be very many riders or vendors there today. just lots of cold blowing snow.

Well here is one rider that backed out today, awoke to patchy ice on our roads and that is one condition i won't gamble on. Probably will do it in April, June I expect to be between finishing the MotoMarathon over in New England and hooking up with the forum in Penn.
