    We'll be meeting next week at the Mohawk Inn. Our usual spot by the fireplace is reserved for ODSC from 6:30pm, and the "meeting" starts at 7pm and goes on until there's no one left - usually after 10pm.

    It's quite informal and open to anyone interested in Dual Sport/ADV/Trail riding.

    For those of you who know Roland (was Rockin' Rollin on ADV Rider posting his "Fly-and-Ride" report) he's currently riding in Ecuador but promises to be at this meeting to tell us all about the trip :) . Roland started his Alaska-Tierra Del Fuego Ride just after our Colorado trip (with Thomas) in '99 and has covered all N. and Central America and is now starting on S. America

    For more information on our Wednesday Pub Nights, check through the "old post".

    Just a reminder that the Wednesday night meetings are finished for the year.

    Winter over - go riding!

    See you in 2018

    It's 2018! Do we have enough for a quorum? Wouldn't that be fun on January 21? Do I have the right timing...third Wednesday, yes?

    Hey Bruce I think it’s January 17, that’s the third Wednesday. For sure would be nice to see you guys, I’m in. I think BoB will come if you organize it.

    I will come next Wednesday.

    The bike show didn't scratch my itch.

    I'll give the old Mohawk a call then and get our table. 7:00 okay with everyone? Wednesday, the 17th. I just realize I have something that will preclude me getting there much before 7:30. I hope you guys go ahead. I'll get there.

    I think I may be done with bike RIDING, but I'm still interested in getting together at the Mohawk to talk bikes/destinations/tech stuff/etc.

    I'd like for someone else to take over organizing it - which is no more strenuous than phoning in a reservation for "the fireside tables in the bar for 10 people". It's usually anywhere from 4-6 regulars to about 20 when the stars align, but the Mohawk isn't good with variables.

    I'm good to go on the 17th and can bring my GPS, Maps, Routes, Tracks, etc for demo/sharing/etc.

    Hi Guys, just wondering if this open to anyone? My Dad and I are starting out and are trying to gather as much info as we can.

    C'mon down. We promise to be full of stories and vinegar...or other liquids.

    We are confirmed for 7:00 p.m. I told them there may be those who arrive a little bit earlier. All set! See you around 7:30, myself. It will be good to see you, Olivo!

    Guys;

    You're going to have a great time tonight! I'm sorry though, I'm really impacted by a bad cold...I can't make it.

    Great seeing everyone last night.

    I think there were 12 or 13 of us. Wonderful stories of rides and other topics. Even some gps tips and discussions.

    Thanks for organizing Bruce and Bob.

    You're welcome, Cam.

    Perhaps you should plan to start an East GTA Chapter to save that long drive from Oshawa(?) ;)

    Well, it appears it's a "Blue Wednesday Month" (5 instead of 4) so we've got an excuse for another Mohawk get-together :)

    I've booked the usual tables in front of the fireplace in the bar from 6:30pm (until 10ish) but we officially start a 7pm.

    Mark your calendar for the regular meetings on February 21 and March 21.

    Everyone is welcome - no need to be an ODSC member.
