Was that somewhere near Red Deer? A couple of weekends ago we were on a trip from Calgary to Edmonton and stopped in Red Deer for a Starbucks & bathroom stop. I spotted a bike with sidecar (couldn't tell exactly the make as it was a ways back from the street but I assumed it was a Ural) filling up at the Shell gas station on 67th Street.
The temp that day was around -10 C if I recall correctly. Now there is a guy who doesn't let a little cold weather deter him from riding. The rest of us are just a bunch of wusses! :biglaugh:
No way! The best thing about being a Ural driver is shocking folks like you. My new ural is more sure footed than any 4wd vehicle ive ever driven (including military Humvees). And with heated gear plugged in its just like riding on a 60 degree day.Unless a very serious emergency, this guy is just stupid
He still does ride it, co-worker saw him there last week, trike was parked nicely under the front door awning.The owner of the honda dealer in red deer rides his bike to work every day of the year. At least he did last year...... He's ridden a GW trike for the last 10-15 years. He's in his early 80's (years that is)........ Not sure how his health is recently....

He might do that Al. All I know is that one April, about 6 years ago he rode it from Red Deer to Olds for a CMA sunday morning service after an Alberta blizzard/blow that, over the previous 18 hours had dumped a foot of wet snow......utcold: and he was early!!Gene,
When winter arrives does he switch over to snow tires on the back of his trike like we do on our cars and trucks?
