Hey all, my name’s Greg. 52. Just picked up my first bike ever last summer... 2018 650 LT. Lovin’ it so far... living in Ottawa, CAN, so it’s waiting in my garage right now, making me check the weather app every day to see when the ice will melt and I can get back on the road 🙂

You can always "stud" your tires for the ice....

Back when I ice-raced, we set-up a course a few miles downstream from Hawksbury, ON on the river.
