      Don't even think about venturing into the Confusion Corner vortex!
      Welcome to Winnipeg, you should visit us when we get -35 C temps for a week or more!

      Thanks guys! I'm home now. Wow that was cold. I went to the pony corral for dinner and left my chicken wings in the car thinking it was ok, as they would stay cold. Unfortunatly, they became totally rock hard frozen solid.
      That corner (empress/portage) totally messed me up. I ended up being totally on the wrong side of the road. At least it was at 3 in the morning and noone was around to see my blundering.
      Also, a certain traffic light along Academy seems to hate my workmate. Every time he drove through that intersection, the flash from the red light camera went off. Even when the light was green. He never did anything wrong. The only thing we could think of is are you supposed to stop at flashing yellow lights? In ontario we don't. But then again, when I was driving, no camera flashed went off. He resorted to flipping the camera the bird everytime he drove through. Looking forward to seeing the pictures from that.
      Beamsville is on the south shore of lake ontario, almost directly across from toronto, and east of hamilton. About 45 minutes from Niagara falls.

      I'm getting pretty ticked with ecode204. I really want to be involved on that forum, but I'm not being activated...
      Hopefully something will work out.

      Sorry. I think the update to phpBB3.0 messed up some tiny things - didn't realize it wasn't working. Should be fixed.
      Think we've got some of the most hardcore euro guys there, s'good place.

      Yeah it all worked out, and I'm a big fan. Can't wait for a GTG or something along those lines.

      Not really... maybe 8 over. I know I went through that intersection going a bit faster and it didn't go off. It is the weirdest thing. We went to the pony corral on Grant. Twice. Good wings & Guiness... can't go wrong . Oh and I totally love that there was an all night drive through beer store in the parking lot of our hotel on pembina. And a Porsche/VW dealer across the street.

      Quality Inn I think? Their vendor is awesome. That's where I'll go 90% of the time.

      Agreed, although I don't go there 90% of the time. It's a little out of the way for me. But I definitely agree, it is an awesome vendor.

      Is there any interest in a GTG over the winter? Say a breakfast or lunch and some time to sit around and talk about our favorite subject?
      Or what are your thoughts on a GTG? Where and when?

      Well well, there's a break in the weather. Although not warm enough to break out the airboxes... I'd be down for beers while the waterbox is still the main mode of rolling.

      I'm looking to do a Techtonics chip and Techtonics 260* but need some help. Anyone down for lending a hand, or are there any decent Euro shops in Winnipeg? Perhaps we can make an event out of this.
