Quite Hilarious Really

You'll never guess what I got today... A parking ticket! For a moped! HAHAHAHA.

Contesting it of course. Already dropped off the slip. It'll be a year before they even set a date - haha, just fine with me!

This can only end hilariously. ;D

Got the Garelli back.

Just brought the Garelli home. It's been in the back room of my bar since the accident. The front end is pretty mashed up. It seems like the forks somehow sank into themselves a bit, and it doesn't turn left anymore. You can only turn the handlebars left a bit. Which is annoying since the front wheel has turned to the right. Sad day. But it still runs pretty good! I'll take some pics of the damge tomorrow.

The time has come, I hate to say, but I'm putting my Batavus Bingo up for grabs. It runs great, it's a fast little bugger too, you've all seen it run. Needs new foam under the seat, which I have, and that's about it. I want $700 for it and I'm quite firm on that price as I really need the money. So if you know anyone looking for a bike, let me know or give them my email (

Sunday's Ride

Well the "bunch" turned out to be myself, Paul, Lars and Jann. We headed out to Leaside and took a tour of the industrial park area,down into Taylor Park and then back to my place. While in the park we found a whole group of people carrying on a Cricket match who had taken over one of the parking lots. It was a bit of a short run but it was fun anyway. At least we did'nt get wet as the rain held off. That's it..see y'all soon. Darcy.

Attn: Friends and Fellow Moped Riders

I found a guy who wants to ride with us. He heard about us from Lars last year but lost trak. More importantly though is he has a 1985 Honda MOPED for sale. He is asking only $500 bucks for it. I've been to see it and it runs beautifully. It's not too great in the looks dept. as someone in the past poorly painted the gas tank a solid white. If anyones interested you can call "Cris" @ 416-462-3295.

BTW, what are we foing for Sunday? Take care. Darcy.

got hit

I won't be riding for at least a couple weeks. I got hit pretty badly last night and they think my knee might be fractured. More details to come after I see the fracture specialist. Let me tell ya folks, I am NOT in a good mood.

Got it!

I got the citizenship card! Just in the nick of time! Gotta head down to the passport office tomorrow and extend my passport and I am all set to cross the border again. SO...........who wants to go to Michigan? Let's do it! I wanna go so bad. Can we figure it out? I haven't registered with the Ghost Ride yet because I wasn't sure I'd have the card in time, but now that I have it, I so want to go. Who's got a car? A truck? A van? Let's do this!! Post here or call me and we can figure it out. The rally is Saturday and Sunday so we could leave Friday night or super early Saturday morning and come back Sunday night or Monday. Doesn't matter to me. I just want to go and ride mopeds with those guys.

$100 for a welder!!! Also I built a blower for my ped.

Yup, Canadian tire has them on sale again. Lots of the time they're not on the shelf since they only put one on display at a time and people are buying them fast. Now I can finally fix my center stand and maybe add a secure carrier on the back.

I made a blower out of an old 12v dustbuster. It produced a huge abount of strong airflow. Alais it didn't work since it cancelled out the suction that adds the fuel to the mix. I then put propaine directly into the blower it was able to run off that just fine. I'm thinking of putting in a fuel injector or putting a carb on the intake and maybe hooking it up so that the blower speed is proportional to the engine speed.

Ribfest was awesome. I'm super hungry right now and all I can think of is those Jim Beam smothered ribs!

Anyway, here's a couple pics from Sunday.
