By Billy Rainford I hope everyone had a great weekend. I decided to sit this one out. There was a chance I was going to make the long drive to Worcester, Massachusetts, but then the thought of where the DMX Van was going to be taking me in the very near future, some couch time sounded great. I made the drive across the city over to Steve Emery‘s place to
Monday Morning Coffee
By Billy Rainford It’s nice to have made it back to snowy London, Ontario. You know how they always talk about the weather predictions in the Farmer’s Almanac or whatever? Well, they called for an unusually high amount of snow for this winter and they apparently nailed it. As I sit here typing, snow continues to fall at about a 45-degree angle out our front window. And it just won’t
By Billy Rainford I’m not gonna lie…I slept in this morning. When my alarm went off, the sound of rain on top of the snow forced me to aim for the ‘snooze’ button but apparently hit the ‘off’ button. We’ve been hit with a ton of snow here at HQ in London, Ontario. In recent years, a green Christmas has turned into the norm, but we seem to have turned
By Billy Rainford We woke up to the ground completely covered in snow this morning here in London, Ontario. When I was young, there never seemed to be any question that we’d have a white Christmas. Today, it always seems to be in question. I remember as a youngster looking forward to some sort of moto present under the tree on Christmas morning. Talk about easy to shop for. Wrap
By Billy Rainford Good morning and hello from beautiful Temecula, California. Thank you to KTM Canada and Husqvarna Canada for getting me out here for this 450 Factory Edition launch for KTM and the Rockstar Husqvarna media launch. But I almost didn’t make it… With an early 6:15am flight out of my home town of London, Ontario, it meant I had to be up by 4am to make the flight.
By Billy Rainford This Monday Morning Coffee is presented by: Thanks, guys, for getting us down to the 2017 Thor Winter Olympics this year. It was great to have Jeff McConkey along this year to keep everyone up on what was going on on our Twitter feed. He also cruised around and took tons of photos for ‘Faces at the Races‘ that we’ll have up on the site as soon
By Billy Rainford Hello, and welcome to Mini O’s week. It’s D Day for me and this crazy leg of mine. Assuming my surgeon gives me the OK to drive (HE DID!), Jeff and I will be hopping in the van and making up as much time as we can getting south to Gatorback Cycle Park for another round of Thor Winter Olympics – The Mini O’s. This annual tradition
Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford I hope everyone had a good Remembrance Day Weekend. Does this date mean it’s now OK to start advertising for Christmas or do we need to wait until after American Thanksgiving for that? PSYCH, they’ve already been going full bore with the Christmas ads for a few weeks already! How early is too early?! I actually had someone ask if I was “ready for
Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning and welcome to another full week of school or work. I bet if you’re in school, you think a full week of word would be better. Well, guess what? See that grass over there on the other side, if you’re VERY lucky, it will be greener when you get there. Unfortunately, chances are you’ll get there and see it’s just a bunch
Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning from off-season central. By ‘off-season’ I mean 1 month, and by ‘central’ I mean my couch. If you liste carefully, you can hear the bones in my leg healing. Sshhh, you have to be quiet, though. “Heal, heal, heal…” The pressure is on for me because I have another meeting with my Fowler Kennedy Sports Injury Clinic surgeon Monday, November 20th.
