We're Riding Thursday!

There will be an RCMP ride on Thursday, September 1st at approx. 7pm. We'll meet at the entrance to Trinity Bellwoods Park, at the corner of Queen St. W. and Gore Vale. For those of you who aren't sure where that is, here's a map. Not sure yet where we'll go from there, but the weather's supposed to be nice, so the possibilities are endless! See you then!

I'm back!

So I got back at about 7 this morning. I had a great trip, lots of mopeding around Elkhart and hangin out with the Motion Left Folks. They've got a great shop, and you all would die if you saw their moped stash!

Leah was kind enough to lend me her gorgeous 1980 Testi for the time I was there, so I explored Elkhart on it. It's an amazing bike, and I was kinda sad to leave it there!

We went on a few great rides. The best one was the last night that I was there, but I didn't take any pictures of that one. This is from the other night when a few of us went geocaching in Elkhart.

Bryan rode this one, Geri's bike, that night, but he had to take it back to the warehouse 'cause it was acting up. When he rode it away it was blowing sparks outta the exhaust!

We also hung out in Detroit and Ann Arbour for a while, where I met some of Noivy Lef and the Guns. The whole thing was a blast!

I want to say thanks so much to Bryan, Leslie and CJ for putting me up all week, I had an amazing time.

Ride this weekend?

Since I'm leaving town for my American moped mayhem next Tuesday or Wednesday and I'll be gone for a week, I though you guys might like a little ride this weekend? Perhaps Saturday afternoon? What do you all say?

just an ad i found

found a cool little garelli ad that i thought i'd share.

Ike's Ride

Well as you have probably already seen on the Moped Riders site a lot of pictures of the ride. It was great! Covered about a little over 90 miles on the Saturday and had only a couple of break downs , if you call them that. Late start as Don Ohio had a flat on the way to the ride, (He covered that day a total of about 270 miles on his Streetmate just to make the ride) Another flat on the route by a LX, an old Eagle that the carb fell off but was put right back on and a soft seize on a new kitted Special addition LX. A total of 28 bikes made the ride and was quite impressive when they were al spread out and cruising. The local "County Mounties" had the lights held for us the couple of times we crossed through Georgetown, Ohio and that was something as we made no stops in the town at any crossroads. No injuries and everybody successfully completed the trip. Lots of wrenching before and after the ride, and a great BBQ afterwards put on by Ike and Maggie Fist. I also brought home another Tomos LX project bike for my grandson. This is a basket case and Ike was good to give me most of the parts to get it back on the road. This will be a winter project, but will "Por16" the gas tank and strip what
ever paint will need to be done before then. I brought this ped in as "moped parts" so I partially disassembled just in case there were questions asked. Also had a bill of sale as parts and a garage sale situation. Anyway nothing was said at customs and the two other bikes were not even looked at. The project ped is a 1996 Tomos LX. I urge anyone who wants a great week-end of riding and good company to try this ride. Driving time is approximately 8 hours each way.

Today's RCMP Ride!

We had a fantastic ride today. 8 mopeds and one scooter swarmed the west end, starting out at High Park and riding all over town.

A break in High Park.

Little Nippy

Well, I finally brought my Norman home today, and although I haven't really cleaned it up yet, here's a couple better photos. I think it's a really neat bike. It feels so much larger than my others.

So, what do you all think?

Let me know if you want any changes, but I think it's pretty cool looking.

See you all at Squirly's tomoorrow night. It would be great if as many of you as possible showed up to this one.

Meet the newest.........

.........addition to my fleet! It's a 1960 Norman Nippy. I found out about these a while back, and thought they were the most wonderful little bikes. They just seem so, well so, so British. Everything about them. I never even dreamed I would find one in North America, but here we have it, my new Norman Nippy!

Image hosted by

It has no engine, but I'm not worried about that. There are clubs in Britain who can supply parts. I'm keeping this one in the house! No rain on my Norman!! Can't wait to bring it home tomorrow and shine it up. I'll post a better picture then!
