Title: Finally meet CdnRatman
Post by: cja on October 23, 2016, 06:31:26 AM
Just this past Friday was able to meet up with ratman  I was passing through his area, minus letting him sit around a timmies for a half an hour waiting for some guy to meetup with him. Either there are too many timmies in north bay or I can not read the map he sent me I'll say the first part lol.
Just want to say thanks for your help and knowledge of bikes since I have only owned a drifter for a few years. I Know who to hit up if I have any questions  or problems. Also showed the better half the seat and she laughed after I said she could start ridding with me now ,I  will have to work on that lol, but it is also nice to go solo

  lol what is a Timmies........lol........

  Timmies is not a what it is a whom and a what sort of........Timmies stands for Tim Horton.

    Miles Gilbert "Tim" Horton was a Canadian professional ice hockey player, a defenceman for 24 seasons in the National Hockey League. He played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Buffalo Sabres. Born in Cochran Ontario, Jan 12th 1930. Won 4 Stanley Cups, 7 NHL appearances in All Star games.
In 1964, Horton opened his first Tim Horton Doughnut Shop in Hamilton, Ontario on Ottawa Street. He even added a few of his culinary creations to the initial menu. By 1968, Tim Horton had become a multimillion-dollar franchise system. Horton's previous business ventures included both a hamburger restaurant and Studebaker auto dealership in Toronto.
Upon Horton's death in 1974, his business partner, Ron Joyce, bought out the Horton family's shares for $1 million and took over as sole owner of the existing chain that had 40 stores at the time and later expanded to nearly 4,600 stores in Canada alone by 2013. Joyce's son, Ron Joyce, Jr., is married to Horton's eldest daughter.

so Timmies is a Canadian version of StarBucks or such a thing it is everywhere.........

 Actually they have really good tea there, and I am not a coffee drinker. Being a diabetic I sadly can not take part in their sweets, but their sandwiches are awesome and the best is their chili it is really good, so on a cold day of riding it is a great place to stop for a snack........
  Mrs GreenBarn also likes to stop at them when they are north of the line.........himself will also eat and drink there but he will not say it out loud........lol

Actually, I don't mind Tim Horton's at all.  I found it quite interesting, even though we have them quite a lot around here - they are flippin EVERYWHERE up there - seems like 2 at every corner...    They have always had good food.   Something else I found interesting is that the menu is different north of the 49th - there are things they have up there that they must not think we can handle down here....
