|||I won't be able to make the meet-up this year, as much as I
|||would like to do so.
|||Yesterday, I attended the Damfest event at the Crysler
||| near Morrisburg Ontario. I was there with my vintage
|||electric motorcycle (a 1974 Auranthetic Charger), and
|||officially became an "Old Bastard" - that is, a member of
|||the Old Bastard Vintage Motorcycle Club (named after the
|||former County of Bastard, eliminated in 1999 with provincial
|||restructuring of municipalities).
|||I also had my Elec-Trak E12 there, as there was supposed to
|||be a garden tractor show, with tractor pull. Due to some
|||confusion on part of the tractor organizers, no other
|||tractors showed up - so the Elec-Trak was shown with the
|||motorcycles - including some real beauties like a mint
|||Ducati shown by its original owner, and the oldest running
|||BMW bike in Canada. Lovely old BSA's and Triumphs,
|||including a (1938?) Triumph motor-bicycle. Small, one
|||cylinder engine on rear wheel, plus original pedal drive.
|||Much, much more unique stuff, including running steamboats
|||offering rides and close to 100 vintage cars. The Elec-Trak
|||generated a lot of positive attention.
|||Anyway, the park is a nice venue, on the river, in a nice
||| This is now an annual event, so I can get a date for next
|||year shortly. The village is not far from the upstate New
|||York border, so this could be a reasonable trip for those of
|||us in southern Ontario, eastern Ontario, much of Quebec, NY
|||state and possible other parts of New England.
|||I think the vintage motorcycle group would sponsor us for
|||some space - the current group president is a former
|||Elec-Trak owner, an another member is a former local EV club
|||member. A third has expressed interest in buying my motorcycle.
|||So, would anyone else be interested in having an electric
|||tractor meet-up in eastern Ontario in June 2008? If so,
|||please let me know, and if there is interest, I will start
|||getting something organized.
|||It's your planet. If you won't look after it, who will?
