February 2014 - My family of motorcycles has changed again. The Yamaha R6 I acquired earlier last year is no longer in my stable, I have replaced it with a blue and silver 2014 BMW R1200GS. I purchased it pretty late in the riding season last year and only put on 700km, so a lot more to be added this year. I'm hoping to do some dual sport trips this year if I can. The K1600GT will be used for long trips where comfort and speed are required.  Pictures to follow.

August 2013 - Motorcycle trip to Califormia.

April 2013 - Motorcycle trip to Maggie Valley in North Carolina with a few side trip to Deals Gap and the Tail of the Dragon. Here are some pictures

December 25, 2012 - Merry Christmas everyone. Got the new GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition for Christmas, cannot wait to try it out. Check out this amazing footage shot with a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition.

November 24, 2012 - Visited BMW Toronto Motorrad as I occasionally do to see my buddy Ben. We got chatting about the upcoming motorcycle trip to North Carolina in early spring of next year, the types of roads and whether the roads would be as fun on the K1600GT as they would be say on a S1000RR. I had been to Deals Gap before and knew what the roads were like there, but didn't know about the area were going to visit. I was informed lots and lots of twisties, not really K1600GT territory, although it's very capable for its size and I'm sure she would not disappoint. So I enquired whether there were any second hand S1000RR's in stock, just enquiring. :-) 
Eh no, but I do have 2 Yamaha R6's that were traded in recently, a black raven and a 50th Anniversary yellow one. Well to cut a long story short, I'm now the proud owner of a 2006 Yamaha R6, my second R6 as I had owned one back in 2003. It's in excellent shape and I cannot wait to ride her in April.
Only one more bike left to purchase and my garage is complete, a R1200GS. ;-) Winter sure sucks when it comes to motorcycle riding, I'm counting the days till April.

September 3, 2012 - It's been a while since I last updated my webpage, getting lazy at doing it. :-) A lot has happened in the last few months, biggest one of all was the selling of the BMW K1300S and the purchase of a BMW K1600GT. I took it down on my annual Colorado trip to ride it in the mountains. Click here to see pictures of the bike and scenery.

January 1, 2012 - Happy New Year everyone, I'm back in Canada after spending a year working in Barbados. Have to get used to wearing a shirt, jacket, boots and gloves again after not wearing them for so long.
