what a great ride, and good to meet some new faces! I still can't believe how well the v-stroms did, how light and nimble the r1200 seemed at times, and how few klrs broke down!

I got back to my camp @ Caledonia about 6:30, it rained HARD from bear river through route 8, so i was glad to see a chicken on the bbq, and cold beer and a roaring fire in the lady scotia stove.

oh, and I was more than happy to prove the abilities of the KL250 Super Sherpa. as we all met up in Bear River, I sort of felt like the odd man out, i mean someone out motored by by 950 cc's, and most had at least 400 on me. By the time we reached new france though, it seemed like I had a few converts - someone was lamenting about how they kept getting into trouble "following the damn 250!" and also some were annoyed at how easy i made it look. I will get a bigger bike, but i love flogging this one for all it's got!

Looking forward to seeing you guys again. Will put up my pics soon.

Nate

Nate...it was incredible to follow you on the trails. You made the trails look easy and I have to say...given the chance, I'd pick up a Super Sherpa in a heartbeat. Great to meet you and look forward to riding with you again.

Some more pics....

Here are a few of the photos I took. As you can see, it was an interesting mix of bikes. The Big Gray Pig... I mean the BMW GSA.... was by far the largest of the machines, and its rider never once complained about the lack of a Starbucks. And, leave it to the KLR Riders...when I dropped my Strom in the Swamp Water, the KLR riders had Zip Ties and Electrical Tape to effect repairs.



Starting to get dirty...



Another view of the Balancing Rock. Obviously Nicole wasn't the only object of someone's affection. Someone needed to travel miles and miles over rough terrain to proclaim their love of KISS.



Still Dirty...



The Lake at our lunch stop.



The Beach that lead to the scariest bridge I've ever crossed on a bike. Not sand, not gravel. No one dropped them here though...



The Lunch Stop



Given the photographic opportunities, I wish I had dug my big camera out of the tank bag and not just used my "throwdown"









And my last stop with the group for the day. This is after I took a Swamp Water Bath and broke the .....hard to believe, signal light and clutch lever.



Even though I broke stuff...I still had a great time and will be taking a collection towards bike parts the next time we all go out..

So...to Roxbury next eh?

Shirley says she really enjoyed the ride, and was happy no one made any " oh my god, not bringing a woman along to babysit all day are we" comments. She is ready to conquer Roxbury Road next, but that is just a short ride, I'll see if I can dig into my big bag of backroads and trails so we can make a full day of it. I think I can get Nate back to the land of funny talkers through Irving roads....Any takers ?

Hey people, had just an excellent day yesterday, great to see everybody. Few comments, it appears that KLR riders have reached the nadir of perfection in bikes, everything else is either too big or too small, I did happen to notice that most of the bigger bikes seemed to have quite a few bits and pieces broken off them.

I'd like to say a big thank you to Yellowknife for telling me Saturday the restaurant in New France had great food and then scarfing large quantities of sustenance in front of me while my stomach rumbled and to Fredgreen for leading me into water so deep it flooded me out, one good thing I found out my goretex boots really are waterproof,

I'm up for a ride with all you guys anytime, it was a real pleasure meeting you.

I am in for the next ride

An evening or weekend ride is great. Roxbury plus some more add ons would work Fred. The Annapolis to Bridgetown Railway bed is another add on option. How about a boil up at a point for lunch. Maybe one of the Digby boys can scrounge up some seafood.

Craig - Great photos for a throw down camera. Will forward some more pics.

Shirley did great and holds no one back. As I mentioned she was the only one to find the trail to the dam project, making the rest of us looking foolish.



Then there is this road near Torbrook.

Fog lamp replacement piece - $28. Fuel for the ride $38. Coffee/snacks $8. Seeing everyone riding thru the trails and water while laughing out loud - Priceless

Here's a vid of SloPhil leading the way through a mudhole, followed by YellowKnife showing the world what the big grey pig likes to do. (he had to keep telling it that there was a starbucks just around the bend..)

"Man, this is...wow, it's just incredible. this is so much fun it should be illegal!" - Yellowknife.
