What kind of blogger rushes off to a blogger to blogger meet up and forgets a camera? That would be me! Oh well, it isn't about me it's about seeing my hood through the eyes of moto bloggers Sonja and Roland of Find Me On The Road: (2wheelersrevisited.)

Vintage Road Racing Association Festival weekend at Canadian Tire Motosport Park. It was a three day event with an endurance race Friday, 5 lap heat races Saturday and 8 lap final races on Sunday. It was my first time at a Vintage (or any kind) of race.
A few highlights from Saturday morning.
|Riders gather for the start of the first 5 lap heat on Saturday|
|I measured this one on the sound meter - 90 db idling!|

This week's forecast called for near record high temps, nasty humidex readings and thunderstorms by Tuesday and/or Wednesday … just not the kind of weather that encouraged me to pull out the gear and ride the Star to the Capital area. (What the heck - I took the Tuscon.)
Where, on one of the hottest days of the summer my friends had planned a lovely hike in Gatineau Park ...
(Brandy, look what I found at the Champlain look out! Sadly I noticed the rider was dressed in shorts and a T-shirt.)
We also stopped at the Pont Brabant-Philippe for a little geo-caching fun. (This bridge was finished in 2015 and replaced the original covered bridge crossing the White River destroyed by arson.)
Day two of my Sojourn to the Capital, the humidex hit 40⁰C. The air was oppressive ... I love mother nature but it was time for some urban hiking at a few of our favorite air-conditioned locations. (Thanks to Google for the photo.)

Another summer weekend and another special event in Kingston.
Amidst the British cars was one lone 1958 Excelsior JAP motorcycle. Owner Barry Brown had tons of information about the bike and its cinder track racing history
The park is one block from the Kingston Yacht Club where this weekend, “O Canada,” an IMOCA60 premier offshore racing yacht was moored and accepting visitors as part of her promotional tour.

I’ve never actually seen the beginning of this event before so it was time.
Also … there were plenty of motorcycles about …
