Great pictures guys!

I'm in the Burlington area... rode up to Rattlesnake Point today.

I'm new to the area (and dual sport riding too) still learning the areas to ride.

Perhaps we can hook up for a ride before the sleds come out!

Had no real plans other than to head out around 8 am and leave the city. Any suggestions?

Too bad Kahoon, another day I'm sure. I still can't believe we live in the same neighborhood and haven't crossed tires.

Was this weekend not the best weekend to get out there and ride???
I started sat. with my girlfriend and stayed the night in the Haliburton area at my brother-in-laws cottage.They had a lot of trees down so I gave them a hand stock the wood ply so I can get invited this winter .Next day (Sunday)we rode up to Manooth and I was even going to stop by Finn's father-in-laws place to say hi to Finn but his last message on here he said something about shooting me....We took a lot of side roads that were great.I just wish we didn't have to get home by sunday night...

Aw Carlo, I was just kidding. We would have at least tried to shoot over your head. Too bad you didn't stop in it would have been nice to meet your better half and since I didn't have my ride with me I could have sat on yours to get my fix.

I should've done a pre-emptive crazy glue strike. Better be sure to hit the other three while I still have 'em.

Cheers.

'06 Dakar, eh? Wow, nice. I bet it's REAL shiny, too....

Say.... why don't you join us tomorrow? I think we can help you with the dumb-ass grin.... (see pic above)

That's a joke, son. Be good to see you on the road sometime.

We should all meet for breakfast some weekend before the snow flies and do a run combining everyone's favourite roads between here and.... well.... somewhere else, I guess.

Anyone have details re. the KTM demo day in Primrose? Location, booking times etc? I'd like to sample an LC4 640 Enduro.
Hey Lornce

As to my knowledge the Adventure bikes might be a bit of a different set up than with the dirt bikes... but I could be wrong. Either way, evenif you just show up, you end up signing a sheet and go when your name is called (unless they are doing appointments). Last year I showed up late and I think there were 2 950's and 2 640's...

The Rally Connex guys (myself and Kevin) will probably be leading / sweeping the test rides on those bikes and we will be on our 950's, so you will get to see what they are like in stock trim as well as all done up.

Not sure what time to be there yet, but the best bet would be to call Dave over at Parker Bros as I know they will be there with various bikes.

Hope to see you up there, I will be on the Black 950, can't miss it!!!

Dennis
