Alright everybody, we have our first venue reserved at Broadway's Prince of Wales at Fisher Ave. Ask for 'Sport Touring Riders of Ottawa' - I imagine there will be a couple helmets around to help you find us :) *PLEASE NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BRING YOUR BIKE TO THIS EVENT - this first get-together is intended to be a meet and greet, no ride is being planned for the evening. So come on out however you prefer to travel for the weather in mid-April.

(Hey - snow, Keep on melting!)

    The first meetup was great. I enjoyed meeting everyone.....or the people at my end of the table. Unfortunately i couldn't get around to talking with everyone, but hopefully I can do that during our rides.

    Thanks for organizing this group Tony.

    I would like to attend. Keep us posted on the location. Hopefully the ride there will be warmer than my first ride of the season last weekend...burrrrrrr!

  • Timothy

    Glad to see we don't need to ride to the first meeting, because my gas tank is sitting in my living room while the rest of the bike is 2 hrs away! Damn rust on the inside...

  • Michael B.

    Promise to go easy on me in the corners! My floorboards are quick to bottom out! :)

      I don't think I'm delicate enough for an XR! :) Would love to get an old bonnie project bike one day though...

    Hi everyone - just to clarify, the first meetup of this group is intended to be a meet-and-greet social event, **by no means is it expected for you to bring your bike out to this meetup this early in the season** No ride is planned for this first get-together, its intended as just an opportunity for everybody to meet and chat about bikes and riding. Organized rides will follow as the weather warms.

    Just to make sure everyone feels welcome!

    Cheers!
    Tony

    May or may not have the bike by the meeting, and I won't really be riding until I get my M2. Taking the course mid May. Done my part, now I'm just waiting for all the pieces to fall together.

    April 1, 2013

  • Lili

    weather permitting- I'm a fair weather rider!

    April 1, 2013

  • Mike S.

    I'm looking forward to meeting everyone! (I might be bringing a +1 ... don't know yet.)
