Coming Attractions (even more reasons to attend the Curd Rally)

Still haven’t registered for the rally? If scooters, camp fires, vintage firetruck grills, and friends aren’t enough to get you out of the house, there are a couple other reasons to be in Ottawa on August 15.

Festival de la Curd – http://festivaldelacurd.ca/en/

Presented by Fromagerie St Albert, the Festival de la Curd is in it’s 20th year. The official program will be available soon. It’s sure to have lots of activities for all age groups.

Craft Beer Week – http://www.nationalcapitalbeerweek.com/

The final week of Craft Beer Week coincides with the Curd Rally this year and includes and show cases the best local breweries and eateries. There are a lot to chose from. Definitely a great way to pass evening or afternoon.

Reassembly starts for real.

The reassembly has begun for real and with Adam’s help, Corey has started knocking of the items on the assembly checklist.

First the bearing tracks, and protection covers were fit onto the fork tube, along with the chrome headset support ring.

and the cables and wiring loom were positioned loosely and secured with a little masking tape to keep them in place while the work continues.

BBQ Saturday Night.

A new sponsor this year is going to turn our Saturday night barbecue into a pretty cool event. They have volunteered to provide the grill. It’s a 1951 Chevrolet Maple Leaf fire truck complete with a 230 ci inline 6 cylinder engine, a 3 speed transmission and an 8 burner grill!

Thanks Gal Power. I think we’re all looking forward to seeing this in person and parking a few scooters beside it to get some great photos.
