I had a great thrill today. I rode my dirt bike 120KMs on the QEW to visit my Mom for Thanksgiving. My Uncle Dave and his son Nick also brought their dirt bikes to my Mom’s house on the back of their pickup truck. Dave rides a 2000 Kawasaki KX 250cc. Nick rides a 1993 ...

I’m very excited about my hockey season opener this evening in Hamilton. I’ve been off the ice all summer, and I’m looking forward to tying up my skates and getting back out there.
