Its Friday, its the Vroom Room come in make yourself comfortable, enjoy the cappuccino and biscotti, join the conversation.
We are entering the "Dog Days of Summer" and perhaps wondering where is summer this year, and also wondering if it will arrive, in the meantime enjoy the warm(er) days.
Make it a point to take some time with your family!
Its great weather to ride a bike (motorcycle) especially if you subscribe to wearing the proper riding gear, its just cool enough to make it more comfortable. Compared to very warm days that making riding a V Twin bike a warm to hot experience.

Canadian Sales...June one of the strongest in recent history, has been another erratic month with winners and losers, although the market is marginally up, it remains a very competitive sales arena, and whoever blinks for an instant loses one month, then tries to make up for it the following month. Although it seems that its always the same folks that are blinking, and trying to make up, and often blinking again.
If you are of a certain age, you perhaps remenber when the Unser family used to own Pikes Peak, and probably read the various stories a few months later in Hot Rod magazine. Times change, cars change, this year Sebatien Loeb shattered the previous record by a wide margin. Enjoy an impressive photo gallery of the 2013 Pikes Peak Hill Climb.
Our usual old race cars the 2013 Spa Classic.
