Don't think you want to take a pig on street tires there though, unless you are a glutton for punishment!

Weather forcast looks good for the next few days. I'm thinking of taking off tomorrow afternoon towards Lake Placid / Adirondack Park, overnighting somewhere, and making my way back on Monday afternoon.

She's been down a few times. Not a big deal. I expect the jugs will come in handy if I need to rotate and readjust before lifting

BTW, decent ride today. Touching some K&P, and a few other dirty corners. Good to have met up with DVDScott :-)

Anyone ever ridden the OFSC "A" trail coming down from Renfrew. Did a little but looks like maybe a snowmobile only trail?

That is still the K&P...OFSC 105A they call it...runs from renfrew to calabogie


There is also a OFSC trail that call just the "A" that runs east from renfrew Arnprior...also called the "Braeside Recreation Trail"...
