FHS Show & Shine

On Saturday morning, I attended the FHS Show and Shine event. This is a great cause as it supports the school's "Stray Kat Racing Auto Club". The weather was not that cooperative, however the event was well supported by car enthusiasts from across the province. There were some interesting vehicles, including an old tow truck that had a somewhat rustic appearance, it was a show stopper!




Check out this video clip, see if you can find the V-12 Roadster!

Congratulations to the organizers for a well run event!

Custom HD

On Friday, I received an information package from Harley-Davidson Canada called "HD1 - Custom of One". The package contained a brochure with information on customizing a Harley-Davidson that is unique to you. A letter accompanied the package that provided a link to the Harley Canada web site that I thought was very cool - http://www.harleycanada.com/hd1bikebuilder! The link allows you to design your own Sportster 1200 Custom, it's kinda fun to add different accessories to the 1200 Sportster. Here is the one I built...a bare bones denim black Sportster with a number of accessories. Try it out!



Ride safe!

Sold - Ninja 500

The 2002 Ninja EX500 is gone! I sold it a week ago after posting it online at Kijiji.ca. There was much interest and it only took 3 days before someone showed up with cash in hand and left with the bike. I purchased the bike in June 2009 as an upgrade for my son (from his Ninja 250). Last summer he only used the Ninja half a dozen times and the insurance for a rider his age is out of this world, even with the Canada Safety Council Motorcycle Training Course. So after a long discussion with my son, we decided to put it on the market...added to the fact he really wants a car.

I am always a bit sad when I sell a motorcycle and this one was no exception. I put a lot of work into this bike and the new owner was very impressed with the condition. I also pride myself on taking very good care of my stuff. Here is the last pic of the Ninja 500 before she left the yard!


With the sale of the Ninja 500 comes the opportunity for a new project...what next? Any suggestions?
