My day started at 9 am when I went to get on the bike and I had to chip ice off my seat. :lol: My new riding group, Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers was having their monthly brunch and I was hungry. We had about 42 members in attendance for the brunch and the food was great.

Here is our group shot(refresh page if it doesn't show up)



After brunch I mentioned to some of the club members that I was going to the Toronto bike show and wondered if anyone was going. A couple had been already over the weekend and the one's going today were driving. When they heard I was taking the bike a few said I was "hardcore". I don't know if I'm hardcore or crazy(or both), but I do know that I love to ride!

I jumped on the hwy because I wanted to get their quickly, but I soon realized I wasn't going to make it that way. I wasn't dressed well for this and being on the hwy made me that much more cold!! I got off the hwy on the next exit and took side roads all the way to the bike show. It probably added 20 minutes to my time, but I couldn't stay warm enough at highway speeds.

I arrived at the show and I was very cold, but still smiling :D

There were a few bikes there but not as many as I expected. Looked like most people drove.

I tried to call Willie Wonka on my cell phone when I arrived, but my phone wasn't working well and I wasn't able to let her know where I was. So my search for her started. As I walked around looking for her I spotted people waving to me, ShadowNorth and Crystal were just finishing up their lunches. I used Chris' phone to call Wonka and let her know where we were.

Turns out Rickyboy was there earlier, but had already headed home by the time we arrived. Also turns out the chick riders of the Crazy Canucks are the only ones who rode to the show! :p :lol:

I was dreading leaving the show, I knew temps had probably dropped more. So I knew I had better buy something to help me keep warmer. I spotted one vendor selling hoodie's. I asked how much and he first said $45 plus tax. So I told him my sob story about how cold I would be and he must have felt bad for me. I am now the owner of a XL AC/DC hoodie that seems more like a 2XL. Back in Black baby! wooohooo! :lol: Cost me $30 bucks, taxes in. I was much warmer for the ride home, but still very chilled.

Here are pics of bikes and us at the show (photo's by Shadownorth)

The bike show was expensive and there weren't any really good deals there, that I saw, but I wasn't really looking too hard for them....regardless, I did had a good time seeing friends and riding, even if I was chiled to the bones :lol:

Great to see you Crazy Canucks again. We can bug Chris too much for not riding to the show since he's the only one who had a camera (left mine in my saddlebags - oops!). :D

Great pics! There's a lot of bikes I missed!

I didn't find any deals on a helmet but it was a fun day regardless.

My friend Ron's very in tune with his 'manliness' so he didn't mind riding b*tch. He actually thought it was funny that he was getting ribbed by strangers. I told my fiance that I had a passenger and that I was ready for him to ride with me and he actually said 'sure!'. :shock: Guess I better go find him a nice pink helmet. :lol:

Lisa, looks like a good time for all. BUT the "chip ice off the seat" would have sent me back into the house. I guess I`m a wimp. :oops: Great pictures, thanks.

Yes, my first passenger. Now my fiance is all up for riding with me, now that I didn't kill my first passenger. I guess he just didn't want to be my first guinea pig.

Lisa, thanks for sharing the pic's. There were some radical designs on the custom built's and the antique bikes were awesome to see. Of course its always great seeing all the smiling faces of the Canuck clan.

In as far as being hard core or crazy, I am still thinking, but I am leaning more towards crazy. Chipping ice off your seat ? Good gawd girl not even I am that hard core or crazy. :)

Glad to see you had a great weekend. You rock girl.

Chris
