Hmm, seems a lot of my pictures have broken links now... going to have to investigate and try to fix them.

Meanwhile, despite Victoria getting a taste a real Canadian winter this season, I've been out and about on a semi-regular basis. Pics!

West Coast fog... nothing to see here, folks!

Snow is so rare that I couldn't resist!

Rode the West Coast Road last Monday from Victoria's westshore to Jordan River. Quite chilly and honestly it was the wrong choice of bike for such a windy, curvy road. Next time I'll take the 'Busa, or have a heavy passenger in the chair. ;)

Definitely rode the wrong bike...

Still an awesome ride with gorgeous views! :)

Fixed the links. Noticed some pics that I never posted so here's some randomness for you all to enjoy...

Nice! Even though you got some winter there in Victoria, I'll still trade you for Toronto's average weather :)

You guys have it easy in Toronto... I grew up in Ottawa! So many years we'd bundle up and scrape a fresh foot of snow off of our car to drive to Toronto for a motorcycle (or car) show and find bare roads and dead grass upon arrival!

Once I'd decided that I'd had enough of that, Victoria was the only place for me to go. :lol:

Beautiful Vancouver Island!

That reminds me, I took my wicker picnic basket off the chair and never put it back on...

More broken links... it appears that Facebook likes to change the URL's it assigns to your uploaded pictures on a regular basis which makes hyperlinking them to forums like this a temporary thing... I will stick to Flickr since they still allow hyperlinking for free (unlike Photobucket, etc)... for now. :roll:
