Saturday - one day closer to spring...and a chance to talk bikes.

This Saturday Barbara and I had the opportunity (or tenacity) to crash yet another gathering of the Kingston Motorcycle Club, an eclectic group of gents who have one thing in common - vintage motorcycles.

It was a fine day (considering the blast of snow that had arrived the night before) and a great excuse for a walk to, where else, the Creekside. I had to wonder, looking at Richard Lobb (Vintage Road Racing Association member and former Vincent Comet racer, now specialty motorcycle repair) and Ken Morgan(Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Famer, rider and collector) how many years of motorcycling experience was gathered in that small back room. Over 20 non official members (and crashers) were gathered to talk bikes and share stories and projects and plans for spring. Today, though, they weren't riding.

Just as an aside - A sure sign of spring ... I saw two robins today (I think this is the earliest I've ever seen a robin in this area). Couldn't get the camera out of my pocket fast enough though ... and they were gone.


  1. Hooray for talks of motorcycles and signs of spring.

  2. The robins have been here for about 3 weeks now. Blossoms are starting to come out on all the trees in our area and bulbs are coming up in the garden. I have to hope that we are well and truly on our way to spring. Yesterday it was snowing a bit off and on and the wind has been really chilly.
