I was born in Toronto, and raised in Mississauga. I moved to Vancouver in '98.
From the looks of it, I might be moving back to Toronto within a year or two to pursue another career. I'll be bringing my X without a doubt...as useless as she may be in the concrete jungle =) I'll definitely miss Vancouver....hopefully I can make it my seasonal 2nd home. I can't live without snowboarding. I heard Blue Mountain in Ontario is a joke compared to here.....but oh well
Hey Miles, maybe we'll meet up eventually. I've got a black Offroad as well, but no mods unlike yours. Are X's relatively uncommon in Mississauga? I'd assume they are.
Glad to see another canuck, but most of all another person who knows and is from Mississauga. Well lately I have been seeing a few stock x's but...none that are really modded. Where abouts in Mississauga are you from....Mississauga is friggen huge now!
I used to live around Rathburn and Mavis. I've been back a couple of times since I moved here, and yes....I've noticed how big Mississauga has become. It's crazy seeing how residential land has taken over the open fields I remembered from back in the day.
My fondest memory of Mississauga: Getting shot while playing tennis in the park with my friends. If you head east on Rathburn from Mavis towards Square One, the first 2 condos on the right have tennis courts in front. That's where some random nutcase from the high-rises decided to use us as target practice with a scoped .22 rifle. As we booked it on our bikes, I was hit in the leg....ouch
WOW! I dont know if thats something I want to remember, but Mississauga's bad areas have seen a major overhaul especially the Square 1 area. Not to long ago Square 1 and the surrounding area had a huge overhaul done to it, they says its bigger than the Eaton Center by 3 x's.
Happy to get out and wheel, know of any trails that are open this time of the year? I'm on leave until 16 March so I have a some free time right now. Were you looking at getting SexTerra's tires? There was a guy on the OVO site (Ottawa Valley Offroaders) that had 4 BFG MT 285s FS, that was 2mths ago, asking $600 I think.
i Guys, Getting a bigger set of tires so I need to get rid of my MT's. They have about 4000k on them (probably not even that much), I just put them on this summer and I don't drive my truck much. They are 255X75X16 So I guess they are about 34" High by about 10.3 wide - they are great tires.
My Brother-in-law lives in Ottawa.....actually in Napean. We try to go up there a few times a year. I heard you guys got a dumpingof snow, by some of the pics you posted in another post I could see by the snowbanks.
