We left the truck stop with a new destination in mind: Bruce Caves Conservation Area, in Wiarton, Ontario, via Harrison Park, in Owen Sound, Ontario. “Outdoorsy! Adventurous! Dangerous!” our war-cry was thoroughly drenched in sarcasm. We weren’t exactly planning on toughing it ...Read More »

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our visitors from Canada!
For those who've noticed YouMotorcycle has been a little quiet lately, here's what we've been up to, how we're making the site better for you, and why.
In Ontario we have a three-class motorcycle licensing system. There is a beginner class (M1 - written test), an intermediate class (M2 - riding test), and finally your full M class license. Unfortunately, the vehicle-specific requirements, definition of vehicles, and options available get a little blurry in the bureaucracy, and many small displacement motorcycle and cruiser riders are left in the mess
... but don't worry, that's what YouMotorcycle is here for.
The spontaneous and unplanned rides are sometimes the most fun. It started with a text message from my girlfriend: “What are we going to do today?” Before long we found ourselves near the historic village of Kleinburg, Ontario. Kleinburg is surrounded by beautiful hills and branches of the Humber river.
The town is picturesque and its early 1800s origins have been left unspoiled.
Part of our on-going How to Buy your First Motorcycle series. We've already looked at motorcycle insurance, the M1 license, including an M1 practice test, now it's time for the M2 test. We'll cover:
Should I take an M1 exit course (a.k.a. MSF riding school course), or just take the test with the ministry?
Does taking a course for my M1 exit test help me save on motorcycle insurance?
What are the approved ministry of transportation motorcycle courses and which one should I take?
