It was the biggest and best motorcycle show in Ottawa ever. A weekend of fun with something for every motorcycle enthusiast who came through the doors. Every detail came together, the level of enthusiasm from everyone was highly contagious, and we can't wait to do it all again next year!

If you own a motorcycle, want to own a motorcycle, or simply want to check out motorcycles and all things associated with motorcycles, you will definitely want to come out to this one!
Ok, we know that there are days in every month of the year with temperatures above zero and bare roads, but those days are fairly few and far between during the deepest darkest months of winter in Ontario. So you have a choice: sit and cool your heels, wishing desperately that you could go for a spin, or go to where the riding is good. The first option makes for an awfully short article, so we'll examine the idea of going elsewhere and riding in more amenable climates, because that's an idea that appeals to us! But there are some important insurance issues to be aware of as well if you ride elsewhere, and we mention a few of those here as well.
The weather in Ottawa in January tends to be brisk. The trade-off for cold temperatures is a reasonable one: fresh, clean air. Oh, sure, it's not motorcycle riding weather, but that fact is true in most of Ontario at this time of year anyway.
Ottawa is a drop-dead beautiful city with tons of great things to see and do and thousands of great people living and working there. This town is ideal for a vacation at any time of year, but what exactly does a motorcycle enthusiast do in Ottawa in January? We have the answer, and you'll love it.
Motorcycle enthusiasts are, almost by definition, people who love to be out in the elements. So it makes perfect sense that a lot of motorcyclists also love to camp. When you take your motorcycle on a camping trip, your communion with Nature is certain to be as intimate as it can be. And, like all other aspects of the motorcycle world, the variations on this type of journey are as variable as the individuals who venture forth on such a trip. So we aren't going to tell you HOW to do it, we're merely going to introduce you to some of the infinite possibilities and details that await you when you ride and camp.
