Friends, Community and Good Causes—Why I Ride a Motorcycle in Ontario
It was back in the summer of 1983—I was a curious teenage girl from a small village called Mindemoya, on Manitoulin Island. My cousins were in their twenties and had ridden up in from Toronto for a tour around the island. As their motorcycles sat in my parents' driveway, I couldn't help but check them out. Noticing my curiosity, my cousin asked me if I'd like to go for a ride, and the answer was…
A Berry Exciting Adventure Awaits—KIMbits and KATtales for September 26, 2014
“A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.” - John Steinbeck   I’m excited.  And nervous. It’s a big step that I’m taking, and I’m not naive enough to believe that if I plan ahead as much as possible, take a deep breath and cross…

On the hunt for good beer in Ontario
Ever wonder why so many motorcycle riders are also beer drinkers? Could it be that the curious spirit that drives the rider to continue on that extra mile, to see what's around the next bend is the same one that impels the brewmaster to tirelessly experiment with yet another another batch of brew? Sometimes you just have to know "Could this get any better?" And just when you think you've seen it all, something new…

David Burbach of RoadRUNNER Magazine on Southwood Road, Explorers' Edge
Fall in Ontario is a magical time, and especially so for motorcycle riders. Not only are the colours around the province exploding with eye-popping yellows, blazing oranges and fiery reds, but for riders, all our other senses are lit up too. The smells of our forests in fall are nowhere more prevalent than inside a helmet. The cool breeze, sneaking around gloves and under collars, and the whispering sounds as that breeze brings down the…

Motocross Track - Beginners Experience
All throughout my life, dirt bikes had never really been my strong suit. After a self inflicted crash due to a bad case of whiskey throttle, into a tractor grading blade and cutting myself up pretty bad on an YZ250 a few years back, I never got into dirt biking. I was always convinced that it wasn’t for me and preferred four wheels and horse back riding than dirt bikes, and I was incredibly scared…
