Discover First Nations History on Two Wheels

KimberleeAnna “KAT” Taplay (more widely known as “KAT”), is an empty-nester and newly-minted class M rider who has a game plan, a “BikeIt” list, and a VStar with a full tank of gas. 

Ask many motorcycle enthusiasts and they’ll tell you that the fall is their favourite time to hit the road. Kat’s recent tour with her ride, Ruby, invites you to get to know the Grand with some great touring in Hamilton Halton Brant.

For those of you who have made the trek to Friday the Thirteenth festivities in Port Dover or have simply enjoyed a leisurely ride along the banks of the Grand River in Central Southwestern Ontario, some of the places I am going to mention may have you scratching your head and wondering ‘why’. But, as Moscow-born writer Vera Nazarian once said: “Whenever you go on a trip to visit foreign lands or distant places, remember that they are all someone’s home and backyard.” You might be all too familiar with some of the places I am going to point out this month, but a second (or even a third) look could very well find you delighting in aspects of the unknown.
