My Saturday was highlighted by a trip to the Canadian Tire on the Queensway just east of 427.



What started out a few car and bike freaks now takes up most of the parking lot every Saturday night.



I can't begin to describe the quality and variety, wow.



Oh ya my CX turned heads as I rode by on the center lane and doubled back for a slow parade pass before parking. Didn't draw a crowd.



It was late when I got there(8:35) and I only got a couple of pics but I'll try to post them.



I will go back earlier next weekend as they will have a sponsors carnival with booths and giveaways

Well I haven't been back since then, but Johnny Canuck sent me a PM interested in going.



I've sent this message to a few local members I know of ,but if you are interested PM me for details.



Thinking about going to the show and shine at the Canadian Tire on the Queensway next Saturday. Will be a few CX500 and CX650's for sure.

A few may meet at my place first and make an entrance.

Canadian Tire is on the north side of The Queensway just east of the 427. Sherway Gardens is just west of the 427.



I'm at 57 Rivercrest Road.M6S 4H5 . Nearest major intersection is Jane and Bloor.



Hoping for good weather.

Well, sure hope it holds, as their forcasts are about as accurate as the "look out the window" method. I will check out the satalite view on Sat and that will usually give you a good idea of whats going to happen. sure hope it stays clear at least in the area (and locations everyone is coming from).

Looks good as of the 11:30 weather forecast. Most of the percip seems well east.



I'll try to reserve parking in front of the house for 3:00 PM.



See you here if you can make it, or at Can Tire just after 4:00 PM.

FADM...I touched base with BoltonGuy this morning...and we've got a plan for the 3 of us to meet up prior to getting to Stans.



So...if you can head across the 401 to the 400 and take the exit putting you on to Black Creek Drive south. Get off at Jane Street - first exit - and proceed south for a very short distance. You'll see a gas station on your right at the next set of lights. I think it's an Esso. BoltonGuy and I will meet you there at 3PM.

Sounds great, I will probabaly be at the gas station a bit early, as I am anal about being late, and like to leave extra time for "stuff" that happens during a ride. I should be there about 2:30 and then I can hit the closest Timmies LOL. Its a straight run for me as Im basically at the 401 and Port Union
