I did this loup once with the wife, she wasnt feeling well so we turned back. I wanted to make St Paul a little to the south west. That would have added on short of 100km/ 60 miles.



This is from where I live to work and around town to the marina. It is apparently the largest inland marina in Canada. The lake is over 20km wide and 30 long. It is around 350ft deep.

There isnt much in the area worth seeing. Just the Air Force base and oil industry. Its otherwise all swamp, forrest and farms.

So, quick update on the bell.

Unfortunately getting it to Alabama was going to be obscenely expensive ($70) and anything less expensive wouldn't have made it in time.  Due to the holiday weekend here in Canada even getting it from Alberta to Ontario was impossible in time.

So the bell will miss Barber this time around.

Seeing as the bell is in Canada already, I'm hijacking it for a very short side trip to Toronto if people don't mind :)  I'll take it for a post-Barber spin in Toronto and then send it on its way - is it going to New Zealand next?

But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

What about a COD? I'll put a $10 in the book, and if there are 8 or 9 others who pitch in it can be there on Friday at lunch (says the post master).

So the bell is in-hand in Toronto.  Sadly not much of a riding season left but I'll get it out for a few miles I hope.  My XS is scheduled to go into the window of Town Moto here for the month of November, so the bell will make a photo-op stop there (not going to leave it on the bike for the public to snag) and then it perhaps log a few miles with me on my BMW.  Will be the first time the BMW has been on the road for 3-4 years so I'll need all the bell's magic :)

Is this thing going to hit the road, say, around the end of May 2013?

Sorry guys - sort of got 'stuck' here :)  I could certainly wait and bring it to Kentucky in May, or can ship it along to someone who can benefit from it sooner.  Sadly the weather here is crap and there won't be any riding for a number of weeks to come.

Well, nobody chimed in so it's coming with me to Kentucky :)  Someone there can take it on their journey home from the Spring Thaw.
