In other news, my young fella took his mothers GS and rode with me around the Peggys Cove loop.
The weather was fantastic even though we were riding by water.
He had never seen the loop on the saddle of the bike as the rider.
Loved the views and the turns.

Very nice recap of a nice couple and
their passion for the ride.
Cheers, Amédée

Good article Shereef.

I almost got out with James in the afternoon, but had to reinstall the Norton's center-stand spring (no quick one-person task) and as James was there I ran out of gas. Thought there was enough there to make it to the gas station, lucky my misjudgment caught me at home and not on the road, but sure hated to miss such a great riding day. Glad you got out. I used to ride that route a lot, it's a great one for your son to experience so early in his riding life.

I had a decent little ride on Christmas Day - not too often we can say that.

Today is the dose of reality as the snow is falling and sticking to the ground. Oh well, time to install the Santa Farkles.

Well it is a nice road, but he had to ride on the other side of the road when he met some gravel.
I didn't see the gravel but a friend who was following him said it was there.
That made me tense right up.
He certainly can ride for his age, but sometimes there is a little more surprise around the corners on that road than not.
Went out for a little bit in the car, and because we are close to Dartmouth road, I can hear the ambulances and cops going to accidents almost every second hour.
Hope everyone is safe.

Glad you found that out in the driveway, the push up that road would be very painful.
I have to come by and hear that commando running.
