Thanks for bringing this to the top. I had never heard of the CMC, just located and joined my local chapter; Napanee 068.

I am still here too, and up for a ride once the weather improves. Looks like sunny and warm today.

I'll be out tonight. Probably meet up with some riders in the west end close to Goodtime Centre. Most of those guys & gals are on sportbikes though. Later, I'll probably head over to the east end at Timmys on Innes by Costco and hang out there for a bit. Have a coffee and hang out with the local pirates and power rangers.

Saturday is looking pretty nice. I would be up for a ride with others. Could head either south, west or over to the Gatineau side. As long as the route has some twists and bends, I'm happy.

@smurfy71 Let me know what you think of CMC. I went on a few rides with the Ottawa Chapter a couple of years ago and found their pace to be a bit on the slow side. One member came up to me after a ride, apologized and then said, "we don't normally ride that fast!" My heart sank a bit because I thought the pace was a bit on the slow side. To each their own though. Overall good group and a friendly welcoming environment.

Will do. Seems I already ride with a few of the members. We have a ride on the 2nd Sunday of each month that my church's minister organised. A few of the CMC guys ride it with us. The pace is pretty good usually. Not sure how many rides I'm going to get out on with CMC, seems they ride Thursday nights, my son has football practices on Thursday nights. I'll try and make a few though.

Probably at some point after lunch once the temps rise a bit.

Retired and broke.

Quite a few CMC riders around me and just north of me in Barrie. I never bothered to join as I can never really commit to anything. But I hear that they are a fine bunch.

I managed to get out for a short ride and it was bright and sunny, but a bit windy for sure. Still great to be out.

Retired and broke.

I went for a ride yesterday from Ottawa to Kingston and back, traveling about 320 kms in the process. The weather was perfect with temps as high as 30 Celsius with clear blue skies and the ACE ran like a top. Not too bad for a 21 year old bike. I stopped at MotoSport Plus in Kingston to see if they might be able to do an oil & filter change and they took me in immediately. Awesome service and this has to be one of the nicest motorcycle dealerships I have ever see. They are a Harley / Honda dealer, but had mostly Harley bikes on the floor. There was a nice teal/white bike that resembled my Shadow. Also on the floor was a bagger in metallic red, but the $46,600 price tag is a bit too much for me. They also had a Canadian 150th Anniversary bike, number #79 out of only 100 made that was also cool. On the way home, I stopped in Smiths Falls and had a 1/2 price Peanut Buster Parfait at the local Dairy Queen. Great ride and a great day in the sunshine.
