Now this kicks ass.

I just got a call from the Ottawa Safety Council, and they had a cancellation for this weekend’s motorcycle course, so I get to do mine this weekend instead of the end of June. Of course, that means I’ll be riding on an M1 for a month longer than planned, but it will also mean […]
