General Discussion / Re: Gas Prices
« Last post by stevecrout on July 29, 2018, 07:21:41 PM »
to add a bit of context - last week the price of gas in Canadian funds in:

Amsterdam was $2.20 per litre

The UK was $$2.77 per litre

In Kampala, Uganda was $1.31 per litre

in Venezuela the cost is about $.08 per gallon!

on the other hand, none of these places have  what I need to call them home so I guess it really doesn't matter if the price goes up or down does it?

On the license thing - I also had to renew mine this year so I wandered into the Penticton Motor Vehicle / Service BC and the nice lady took my information then returned shortly and said "I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is because you're over 65 you only have to pay $17 and not the usual $75.  The not so good news is I'm going to have to change your hair colour description from brown to grey"

Who says Government types don't have a sense of Ha Ha !

Late last week my wife decided we needed to look at a boat for sale in .... Creston.  We drove down Friday evening while you were enjoying your time at Martin's.

I got stopped in Golden for allegedly speeding.  Discovered that my licence expired May 17th.  That means I did the whole Dawson City trip with an expired licence.  Good thing I was not pulled over on that trip, because unlike Golden, I did not have my licenced wife to take over driving.

We meandered our way home and checked out some of the Kootenay/Okanogan roads I had not yet discovered.  Beautiful, slow and windy.

Terry Miller said he was thinking of checking out the Triumph Rally in Nelson this weekend.  I guess he didn't go, because I didn't seem him there.



Peace & Grease, Dennis

We went, we lived.  Link to pictures at the bottom.  Got to Martin's at about 7pm, rained steady from Bear Lake to Mcleod Lake.  Didn't bother stopping for raingear.  Martin has created a beautiful Garage-ma-hal.  He gave us a project, get his old New Hudson running.  The tank had petrified mixed fuel it it, it came out as chunks.  Cleaned the carb and fuel line, brazed a couple spots on the tank, replaced the sparkplug and she fired up right smartly. 

In the morning, we grabbed breakfast at Mackenzie Junction.  Guy left to head home.  At Azu RV park, Pat left us to head home, leaving Olaf, Clayton, Neil, and myself.  If drizzled a little bit, but then started to warm up.  Decided to go to the dam and took a walking tour.  A nice ride up the Peace Valley and we got to Trevor and Shawnda's place.  About an hour after we got there, the rain started, stopped, started... Settled in with a few drinks to see what the morning would bring, though we already had an idea. 

This morning it was UGLY!  We had planned to go through Tumbler to get home, but the weather made a different choice for us.  The rain finally stopped just before Mackenzie Junction, we stopped, dried up, warmed up, and then proceeded home.  Thanks much to our great hosts this weekend.

Iím secretly hoping for a deluge Friday afternoon so this ride will be postponed until next weekend when I can come. 

Just kidding, but I am envious.

It's a go, we're not made of sugar. 

We have covered lodging both Friday (Martin's) and Saturday (Trevor and Shonda's) night if it's damp. 

Looked at the forecast, it's changing by the hour....

So, Sunday looks pretty good but Friday and Saturday are forecast to be rainy in most locations on the loop.
Still determined to go? I guess the decision will be made over coffee at Timmies on Friday evening?

does the neutral light come on? Check fuses?  Will it crank if you short across the starter relay?

Maybe here....  https://www.viragohelp.com/virago-ignition-systems/
