We all met Friday night at a house in Niagara Falls. This would allow us to get an early start at the border Saturday morning. We had a route generally prepared for us by Shakey Hands, but we did not have destinations selected for each night, nor the exact roads/highlights we would hit every day. As it turned out, we sort of picked a destination each night for the next day. It worked out really well (even if we did have an awful lot of miles to cover the last two days to get home!)
The obligatory Duty Free stop. Shakey is a smoker, so you know we had to stop here before crossing the border.
You can see our rides in this shot. Dyno is on a V Strom, Shakey on a 990 Adventure and I am on a 1200GS. Very capable and compatable bikes for a long distance ride. None of the bikes caused us any grief what so ever all week long (and we tested them!), except one small incident where Dyno's bike got some bad gas. Come to think of it, some of the riders had bad gas as well.
