I am in Barrie as well, have a cottage in Haliburton with lots of space for sleeping and room for camping.

I'm in Toronto and have travelled a few gravel roads in my day, but this dual sport stuff is beyond me. I have to rely on my Strom as daily transport from mid May until mid October Would love to meet some others however

If your interested in attending, pm myself, Fin or Osteo

If coming from the East, you exit at the Brock St. exit and there will be a Sunoco gas station, Tim’s, Wendy's and McD's all right there at the off ramp.

If coming from the West, same thing, exit at Brock, come over the bridge (now going north) and you will see McD's and Tim's behind it.
Hey All

I'll be at the Tim's in Whitby Sunday night and I thought I'd offer a little incentive to others to come. I have two comp tickets for the Canadian International Auto Show held annually at Rogers Centre and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from the 17th to the 26th and I'm not going to be able to use them. So first one there gets them.

See you there.

We met.

We talked.

We laughed.

We laughed at ZZRon living in the frigid north.

We never did decide on a ride.

The one thing we did decide to do was to keep this thread as our go to place to keep up with each other.

So the rest of you Ontario riders, whenever you want to get together to ride, do a tech seminar, or just shoot the shit, this is place.

Even for you, Ron.

Hey Guys

Sorry I could not make it, I sent an email to the Big Dog list - ended up going out to dinner with the wife (Dirt Bike Wife!) - I figured seeing as she is the one that tolerates me on the bike so much, I had better put my dues in when and while I can!!


See you guys soon... I just got in from walking the dog.. spring is in the air!

Garmin Maps

I have checked my Garmin maps and I have City Select N.A. V6 and Metro Guide Canada V4. I didn't see the basemap you made reference to on the GPS Central website.

That enhanced basemap is part of my v3 canada metroguide, but is seperately listed in that drop down menu. As I loaded v4 on top v3, not sure if it's a seperate entity or not.

Osteo...well...all I gotta say to you is...

Hey Guys

Enjoyed the gathering last night, learned a few things... Learned that Drift can really tell a story and that he knows a lot more than me about gps tech. Learned that between the six of us we can't get around to deciding anything. Hope we're better together when on the bikes cause that could cause some serious kaos. But I know that once the weather gets a bit warmer there are a few like minded crazies just chomping at the bit. Must admit though that the most important thing I learned I learned from Osteo's post when I logged in today... Ask him for advice with my better half before planning any rides or dropping $$$ on the bike.

Cheers

Fin
