I'm not in town right now, but if I can get back before Monday morning I'll join up on my 650 Dakar for sure.

Weather is looking good for tomorrow! sounds like a good crowd for the ride, might be a bit wet in a few spots after yesterdays rain but should be good nonetheless.

Three of us did the K&P from Snow Road station to Flower station with only one footsoaker yesterday. Bloody cold even on the backroads and trails after two hours of damp highway at 3C. Still, my first time out there and it was a blast! Should be good today with another day to dry out and some warmer temps. Have fun!

PS. I've been meaning to join up with some of you guys here, but I was not sure I could keep up. I'll be sure to make it out there the next time that I can.

Thanks for the ride boys - sorry I had to peel off early...had a lunch date to keep back in town. I'll make sure I leave more time for a ride next time.

If the first half-hour of todays ride was any indication, I'm sure ya'll had a blast on the rest of it. That was some fun stuff to start out with!!!

See ya next time...

Had a great solo ride to the cottage.
A wee bit cold but well worth the brrrr.

Ill have to get some other enduro-ists to tag along so I can really tackle those deep bogs.

Fun stuff today. My first ride going through that stuff (mud, hydro line road, river...sort of).
Water was a bit cold for a swim though?

Great to see you guys again and great to see some new faces as well. It was a perfect ride. Muddy, wet, challenging, fun, what more could you ask for. Looking forward to seeing some pics posted.

One day soon I'm going to climb that hill.


Next time, bring the water wings

I think the water wings would have helped a lot more than the battle wings.

"a Virgin No More"



I've done it and survived!
It's more fun now, talking about it, than pushing it through the water.
At the time I wondered what I was doing there in the first place. That feeling soon goes away though.
