I received my motorcycle license in 1957, riding a new Triumph T20 Tiger Cub. The Cub provided year round transportation, in Michigan, until I bought a MG-TF Midget Roadster. The TF had no heater and a not so weather proof top, so it was not much of an improvement over the motorcycle. I rode my brother's BSA Gold Star TT, up to entering the Navy. My next motorcycle was a 1967, Triumph Tiger 100 "Daytona," that runs well today. Riding the length of California and in the Rocky Mountains on the Triumph left Whitworth nuts and bolts in numerous places. 
  In 1988, the K100RS was purchased new, now having 80,000 miles on the odometer. Love the ABS brakes. Touring around the Great Lakes, Parry Sound, Tail of the Dragon and Smokey Mountains has been fun over the years, leaving no Metric nuts and bolts! Sport bike rallies with other K100 and K1 riders were fast and exciting, especially when avoiding the OPP around Parry Sound and on the 402. The K100 is a March to November rider in Michigan, heated grips, seat, riding gear, etc.   
  The 1970, R75/5 currently takes me back to my early riding days, on a vintage BMW that is a great reliable, touring machine. The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum classifies the R75/5 as the first modern touring motorcycle. The Ducati 996 and Triumph "Daytona" are reserved for shorter trips. Sixty-two (62) years of Motorcycling have been a pleasure and I anticipate many more rides keeping "the rubber side down."

Hi and welKome Blackpony!  Do you have a cottage in Parry Sound by any chance?  I get up there fairly often and have always (so far) had good luck with the OPP   Very Happy  The 'new' 400 is much safer and better than old HWY 69 but it isn't nearly as exciting.

Welcome!  I, too, have done the Huron/Superior Loop in 2017.  So far, I have yet to meet an OPP after 50 years of motorcycling in Canada.

Ontario Provincial Police.  Among other tasks, they enforce speed limits on Ontario highways.

What .75 said - kind of like state troopers but from the frozen north.  Here in Ontario they are referred to as 'THE' O-P-P as in the following not so uncommon statement, "I totally got busted by the OPP."  In Ontario we also benefit from municipal & regional police and the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police).
