A few of us in the Belleville/Quinte West area have started a local Gold Wing motorcycle group. We are fully aware of another major club in the area. But we're looking for something a little different. If you reside anywhere from Cobourg (west) to Kingston (east), and from Picton (south) to Bancroft (north), and you're interested in riding with like-minded riders, respond here and I'll pick up your message. (Like-minded means a touring mentality (not just a 30-minute run to the local Dairy Queen), and safety-conscious.)

Please note, kind sir, that Florida is nowhere near Eastern Ontario. Peterborough, however, is just a hop, skip and a jump away. It most definitely qualifies!!

I just thought with all the nasty weather you guys have been having up there this winter, that you may not have any rides planned for the next couple of weeks....! :lol::joke: Hope to see you in a couple of months though.

Hi Jack - Arden sure does qualify. In fact, we have a Winger from Arden who has joined.

Qualify

I don't qualify because I live to close to "Big Smoke" being in Newcastle. I led a ride of Retreads from Peterborough last weekend and we ended up at Chubbys in Hoards Station. Gained 15 pounds from one sitting. ha ha. The roast beef is phenomenal!! Have to make a reservation but there number is online. Happy RTEing

A sidebar--heading down to Three Girls in a couple of weeks to pick up my new heated Corbin for my new (to me) 2005 Anniversary Edition. Maybe you wanna come with me Paul?

You gotta stay away from Chubby's. Way too much food, as you know, since you recommended the place a while ago. Did you know it's for sale? $400,000 is what I hear they're asking.

Breakfast at Three Girls sounds great. Let me know when you're going, and we'll see if it works.

Well, there is a sale barn there and that's why it is called Hoards Station but I have not heard that Chubbys is for sale. I hope not because I don't know if it would be the same if it is not owned by the original family.

At the moment it looks like Three Girls will be on Friday, July 11. It take 3 weeks to build the seat and then allow a week for delivery. I ordered it last Thursday. I'll keep you posted.

Sorry Ron, I'm still a working stiff. Can't go Mon.-Fri.
I'm a working stiff too but I put my 40 in between Monday and Thusrady so I have Fridays off. Looks like I'll be taking my son's antique VW Cabriolet to get new ties installed down there. Taking Tina with me so it will be two antiques in a convertible antique. ha ha

Got a buyer for the seat so we are now taking the bike and making a two day trip out of it. Is that Arden Road paved that runs south from Arden. Last time I came through there it was gravel but that was several years ago.

Hi Ron;

I happened to be sitting with a fellow from Arden when you posted this question. He tells me that road is now paved.

When are you going? Maybe I can join you.
