With apologies to Prince Edward Island, Labrador, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut.
Yamaha Canada has also launched a "win your Yamaha" contest, in which you could win the bike (or ATV, or other Yamaha product) you buy, plus get extra promotional offers, if you buy before the end of the month. Sweet.
For Nova Scotia they go to Halifax, but in New Brunswick they go to Beresford? Uh…yeah…that makes sense.
Well if you don’t go to the races maybe the lines will be shorter. They should have just brought the tour to Calabogie.
I’m impressed that they scheduled the ottawa one on the same day as canadian superbike racing in Calibogie (our closest race).
I guess they don’t have calendars over there in Yamahaland.
