Route 1 - straight up I 75 to Detroit, cross the border at Windsor Ont. Note, take the bridge not the tunnel. Ontario Hwy. 401 to London then south to St. Thomas. About 2 hours from Windsor. A more scenic drive from Windsor would be on Highway 3 which goes along the north shore of Lake Erie. It also meanders around a lot and would take much more time.

Route 2 - I 81 crossing near Kingston Ont. Hwy 410 west to London and south to St. Thomas. About 4 hours from Kingston to London.

Route 3 - via any number of routes, enter through Buffalo or Niagara Falls. QEW (Queen Elizabeth Way) to Hwy. 403 to Hwy. 401 to London and St. Thomas.

In Ontario, the multi-lane highways (interstates) are numbered 400 and up.

I was going to warn you about our long straight roads but then I saw you were from Florida.

Advice above is correct. Are you looking for more fun roads to ride or just quickest directions to get in / out?

What do you mean illegal! I have plenty of legally owned guns.

Illegal to carry for protection, I should have been more specific.

I was a collector myself.
