The CF event in Regina was marred by an accident that sent two people to hospital with serious injuries. One rider hit the rear end of another bike. Approximately 400 bikes turned out for the event.

Group riding in urban traffic situations is NOT for the faint of heart or the new rider. Yes it is sharp to see or be a part of a long string of motorcycles going down the road however, the riders participating had best be on their game.

Accidents happen SO quickly...

The number of rider deaths this season is of grave concern to me and I think that Quebec's idea of banning anyone under 25 with less that 5 years of riding experience from riding high powered sport bikes just might be a really good answer to reducing a number of those deaths. I'd like to know more details about what is being proposed as I think it just might be an idea whose time as come.

If you get a moment, come check out the news feeds over at where we have over 800 motorcycle events in the calendars and tons of interesting reading on the motorcycle community in Canada...

Two days later that I hoped but I am hitting the road today on my way to Estevan SK.

Hubby appears to be doing better, our daughter in back from her camping trip and is prepared to stay with him if needs be and a great network of friends will be keeping an eye out on him for me. I have been very conflicted about leaving but he assures me that all will be well. I am putting my faith in the universe that it will be so.

If you are lucky enough to be riding today, PLEASE ride like everyone around you is blind and use respect with your throttle hand.

  1. I'm so sorry that I haven't been here for a while...but My Mom's passing in Quebec and my living in BC has caused me too many heartaches and problems that I suddenly had to deal with... I will be reading each and every one of your posts in the next few days, cause I think you are building a great riding community for all of us Canadian riders.
    I have , a long time ago, decided to always ride solo or at most with two other friends...not that I'm not social...I just think riding in groups is immature and propagates the gang is here point of view...not to mention the possible accidents and fatalities.
    Anyway, that's just my point of view and it doesn't mean anything to others.
    On a personal note: I'm glad to hear Hubby is doing better and that Lady Lassie "Junior" is home from Camp.
    Best of Luck and thank you for doing so much for our riding community and may I take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of everyone riding in Canada...and also to tell you the same thing you tell all of us, mother hen, ride safely and do not assume they see you...Thank you so much again and keep well and safe.
