IceBreaker 2014

After receiving a few PM's regarding the IceBreaker and what's proposed, I thought I should post what's happening.

May 16, 17 and 18.

Ely MN.

No format, not a rally, just getting together to celebrate and kick off another riding season and probably the most worst kept secret.... JimToe is getting hitched. So we are getting together for beer and steak in Ely.

There is plenty of good riding and lots of Wildlife... Humvee will confirm, deer a plenty.

To book a room, contact:

Roger & Debra Murawski
Motel Ely Budget Host
1047 E. Sheridan St.
Ely, MN 55731

p: 218-365-3237
f: 218-365-3099
e: info@motelely.com
w: www.motelely.com

Apparently there is camp ground, but it is way too far to get back to from the bar!!

If you have never been to the area, you will need your camera and your best riding skills. Lots of slab and trails to enjoy.
There is a casino in the area as well for those who wish to participate.
Or if you choose to go for a shopping trip, Duluth and Areostitch is a nice day run.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

( heard a rumour, a rider from Ottawa is booked, now that's a long weekend run!)

I'm planning on being there as well. I believe I'll be staying with NorthRider and Finndian in the house next to the motel. Looking forward to it after such a long winter.

Too bad Rob, I will catch up with you after the Ice Breaker as I will most likely head to Thunder Bay to visit family.

Neil and I are not going to make it up there this year. We are planning a ride to the south instead. We'll find y-all another time this summer!

Made reservations today.
Kevin and Rob both on DR650's will also be coming along.
Looking forward to the weekend

Wondering if a snowmobile might work better
Sure hope it warms up soon

Ok, Nanabijou are going on our 125's. So we will probably ride separate from the group, at a slower pace. I'll also have to check with Old Fart at Play, to see if he is going along on his DR650.

This "F"ing winter is going to bring on a great riding season!

Old Fart at Play can't make it. Other obligations.
