For the Southern Ontario crowd. Paris Ontario is having the annual Vintage Motorcycle show in the fairgrounds this weekend.

I'm told the 'theme' will triples. Should be interesting.

I'll be there around 10am

I went last year on the Sunday (had to work Saturday) and there wasnt much there. Looked like Saturday was THE day to be there. On the upside, I did see a lot of nice 2T's on the road as i was going into Paris.

Guess I'm SOL as barbers work Saturdays. And Sunday will probably be planned for me.

That does suck.

That Fathers Day thing has a habit of doing that.

I went about 12 years ago and there wasn't many 2 strokes, but not a bad day out if you didn't have to drive too far. I have to work but almost booked it off for the Hamilton Warplane Heritage Museum Airshow http://www.warplane.com/events/upcoming ... eventId=91

I'm a literally 15 mins away (in Brantford), so I think works out well. Plus if it soo wet, no big deal to bail and go home.

Hi Rory,

It's not really running at this point in time. I didn't run it last summer either. It's sad. I have a new crank that needs installing. There are some other transmission bearings that need changing. I have an awesome set of GPL pipes that I need to mount.

I have all the parts, but no real time to speak of. Just about 3/4 of the way thru a main floor reno. New kitchen, flooring, range hood, got rid of the popcorn ceiling, etc. I still have built in cabinets and fireplace to go.

My garage is a disaster. No way I could rebuild an engine there. Problem is I have to make 3 moves (projects) before I can start with my bike.

I basically got sucked back into home reno's and got completely buried.

Once I start on my bike again. I'll post my progress.

Maybe I'll poke around the forum for a bit. I've been away for quite a while.
