    Happy Canada day to our northern neighbors!

    Happy Canada day! Thank you all for being our civil neighbors to the north. Although could you please drive just a bit slower when visiting NY?

    Those speedy ones are from the belle province. If you want to test your nerves and driving skills drive in Montreal during rush hour.

    I concur with Happy Canada Day. Spent it in Calgary last year and the whole family had fun. Great city. However, I have a different request of Canadian drivers when they visit Montana. Please Speed Up. Very polite and safe drivers, but if a car is being passed on all sides here, it typically has Alberta plates. Now to be fair, when I crossed over to Alberta last year and went their speed limit, I felt I could have jogged along side my car. A TW would be fine on their fastest roads, and I ride mine slowly.
