Other times they are diaphanous and impossible to get a grip on but are very clearly there, like smoke. Velocettes bring both of these types of goals together, with an enticing intermittency of payoff that may or may not be related to the thrill of gambling. READ ON

Newcomer to B.C. ‘totally outraged’ at ICBC motorcycle rates

25-04-2015 Hits:1969 BC Travel News and GCDR Editor - avatar Editor

Darryl Smith is upset with ICBC over what he considers absurdly high insurance rates for motorcycles.Darryl Smith knew that when he retired to Parksville from Calgary, things could be more expensive in B.C. than in Alberta.

But he couldn’t believe what it would cost to ensure his motorcycle, a 1,600 cc 2009 Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider.

Just the most basic insurance, with a $200,000 third-party liability, would be $800 for six months compared to $300 for 12 months in Alberta.

Smith, 62, could add extended coverage including collision, fire and theft for about another $150 in Alberta. He’s received a quote from a private insurer in B.C. that would get him that coverage — for $389 with a $1,000 deductible or $428 for a $500 deductible.

“I’m totally outraged,” said the former oil and gas industry worker, who was in electrical engineering. READ ON

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Mount Rushmore National Memorial may be the most famous landmark in the Black Hills of South Dakota, but it's not the only one.

Covering approximately 8,000 miles (nearly 13,000 kilometers), the Black Hills are a small, isolated mountain range with a big Native American influence. The Lakota took over the mountains from the Cheyenne in the 1700s and named it Paha Sapa (translated to Black Hills.) The Lakota signed a treaty with the U.S. government in 1868 exempting the hills from white settlers. But when gold was discovered in the mountains, the U.S. government broke the treaty and moved the tribes to reservation lands in other areas of the state. READ ON

2013 IPM big winner in Celebrate Ontario grants

09-04-2013 Hits:787 ON Travel & Tourism News Mitchell Advocate - avatar Mitchell Advocate

The 2013 IPM emerged the big winner April 3 when Rural Affairs Minister Jeff Leal announced Perth County’s Celebrate Ontario grants.

The event will receive $350,000 -- the maximum allowed for a single event -- to help add some new facets and new entertainment to the five-day event this September.

"Festivals and events are powerful economic drivers," Leal told a few dozen people gathered at the Perth County Visitors' Association Welcome Centre in Shakespeare. "They celebrate our diversity, multiculturalism, and they attract new visitors. They drive tourists to our communities, they boost local communities and they create jobs. A lot of jobs." READ ON

Duo to recreate first round-the-world bike trip

28-03-2013 Hits:3749 International Travel Travel - avatar Travel

Two motorcyclists will leave London today in a bid to recreate the world’s first round-the world motorcycle trip, which was completed a century ago this year.Geoff Hill, who is also Telegraph Travel’s Belfast expert, will be joined by Gary Walker, a former motorcycle racer, as the pair leave from the RAC Club in Pall Mall.

On their CS Clancy Centenary Ride they will follow the route traced by the American, Carl Stearns Clancy, who finished a round-the-world trip on a Henderson motorcycle in 1913. Mr Clancy left Dublin in October 1912 with a travelling companion, who he left behind in Paris. He then continued south to Spain, across north Africa, through Asia, with a final stint across America. His journey took 10 months, and was described at the time as "the longest, most difficult, and most perilous motorcycle journey ever attempted." READ ON

As we look across the river we may think more of Detroit’s decline than Michigan’s growth and the tourist dollars that could travel here from the state.  READ ON

Best Western’s Rider-Friendly Program

16-03-2013 Hits:3372 International Travel Motorcyclist Online - avatar Motorcyclist Online

At 33 feet by 16 feet with an 8-foot-high ceiling, Room 410 at the Horn Lake Best Western Plus near Memphis, TN, has more than 4000 cubic feet of storage capacity. Plenty roomy for the largest Hog rider, this huge volume is cooled by a low-mounted, through-the-wall Sanyo air conditioner wired to a remote Simple Comfort 2001L thermostat. Best Western, hoping to avoid the red-hot hotel BTU wars, declines to rate the Sanyo. But from the amp draw I'm guessing around 18,000. 410's copy of the SC 2001L thermostat has an overly tight differential, causing the Sanyo to short-cycle. Dehumidifying performance suffers and if I was staying more than one night I'd install the spare Robertshaw 7-day programmable unit I carry in my pocket for just this situation. READ ON

The Last Leg…?? So….it’s a quiet Sunday afternoon here in Jozi, and I’ve been fiddling with “Mapsource”, the program that took me around the world and allowed me to plot my routes in such a civilized manner.

A ride through the rolling foothills of Alberta, a chance to support a worthy cause and to lay down a winning poker hand—who could resist?
The organizers of Rolling Thunder have invited the Times and the Eagle to a game of poker that will span the countryside from Cochrane to Exshaw to Canmore and back again via motorcycle on Sept. 14. Although the Rolling Thunder Poker Rally is months away, we’re already pumped to have a chance to extend our coverage of this event and to beat the Eagle in a gentlemen’s game of poker.  READ ON
