Christmas Tree 2017

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2017 by getbent57

It has been a tradition in our house to setup/decorate the Christmas Tree on the first Sunday in December.  Have gotten pretty quick at it over the years.  It so much easier with a fake tree.  Have add more lights to it this time.  The only thing is, could only fine white strings of lights.  All the rest are green.  It kinds of sticks out.  But at night it’s not so bad.  You can see for your self below.

We are into the second week of October (2017).  So time is running out on days I have to ride my motorcycle, a 2006 Yamaha XT225.  Was my day off and the weather wasn’t too bad, around 13°C.  Decided it to give my bike one last wash and wax for the year.  Am hoping to get the the end of October before it gets too cold to  ride.  Time will tell.


Cape Breton Bike Rally 2017

My favorite thing to check out at the Cape Breton Bike Rally (2017) is the motorcycle stunt show.  The past few years never took any pictures because my newest camera is too big for my pocket.  So this year dug out my old Sony Net Sharing Cam.  Sure, it doesn’t take the best pictures but it easy to use can carry.  Below are some of the better ones.  As for the rally itself.  It was really good.  All more vendors and people around.

Has been far too long since I gave my motorcycle a 2006 Yamaha XT225 a wash and wax.  The weather has been super nice.  All so got home early from work (Aug 3, 2017).  It was the right time to do it.  The 2017 Cape Breton Rally is this weekend.  It will be nice and shinny when I got check out the events.


Knights of Valour

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on July 21, 2017 by getbent57

Knights_Of_ValourWent to an interesting event last night.  The Knights of Valour were in town.  They travel around to show off full contact jousting.  A few years ago there was a few shows on TV about jousting.  This group’s show was Full Metal Jousting on the History channel.  Remember seeing a few episodes of that.  So getting to see in live in person was pretty cool.

At first thought it was just a “show” all planed out and what not.  Turns out it is not.  It was the real deal they going all out.  They started off with introducing the six knights.  There was even one lady.  After that they did a skills competition.  They had to take a spear and try to hook on to three rings which were held up by three lads.  Next turn the spear around at throw it a at target.  Get another spear and do over again on the other side.  Up next had to cut a apples off two poles with a sword.  Then pick up a lance and hit a contraption trying to make it spin around as many times as possible.  This was all so timed.  The person with the most points and fastest time got that add to their score then the jousting started.

Now it was time for the jousting.  Which was pretty awesome.  They had two around of that.  Then the lances hit the metal shoulder plates it made a very sicking sound.  When the laces broke pieces when every were.  One when right up to the lighting.  Three of the knights got nocked off.  One guy hurt this shoulder pretty bad and had to stop.  The lady got nocked off was well and stopped as well.  The third guy managed to get back on after a small break.

Over all it was an awesome show.  Would go again for sure.  If you see then coming to a place near you go and see it.  You will not be disappointed.  Took some pictures. Which you can see below.  All so have some video.  Just need to edit it first.





New Air Filter

It has been a few years since I have put a new air filter in my 2006 Yamaha XT 225.  Put a new one back in May 2013.  So it was long over due for a new one.  Went to the local motorcycle shop to order one.  Had to order an after market one.  Which is fine.  Does the same job.  Thought it would take a few to get here.  But got it in a few days.  Even with Canada Day in the mix.  The one I got is from the company UNI Filter.  You can see some pictures of the new and old one below.
