Vancouver Motorcycle Show – January 24-26th

It is happening this weekend! Like right now, at the Tradex in Abbotsford, the Vancouver Motorcycle Show has the best and newest motorcycles, scooters, ATV’s and side-by-sides on display. Most of my buddies and I consider the Vancouver Motorcycle Show to be a can’t-miss event. This is our opportunity to see, in real life, all […]

Country Tire for Winter Tires

If you live in Metro Vancouver and you commute by car, things are about to get “real” and you probably want to get winter tires for your car. The forecast is calling for … SNOW in Metro Vancouver. Before we go any further, be aware that this is not a blog post I have been […]

Fade Friday Day #72

It has been quite a few days/weeks since I posted a Fade Friday update. So here it is – a day late from Friday. The fade lines are really starting to develop character especially around my A Simple Leather Belt Co wallet. A couple of years ago I switched from carrying my wallet in my […]
