it's not that bad, our languages are almost the same:

American: Hi would you happen to know where the nearest Timmies is?
Canadian: Hey there where's the Timmies eh?

American: I'd like to use your washroom please
Canadian: Hey where's the can eh?

...so basically you cut down the fluff and add an "eh" in the end and you too can speak Canadian eh?

now if anyone would care to isplain the Canadian/French Canadian differences you're more than welcome, I for one am not touching that shit

Posted this on the other thread too, but trying to get everyone's opinion.

For KLR riders:

What tires are you planning on running for this ride? I am trying to decide between freshening up my current Shinko 244s with a new rear (front looks like it will last forever), or spooning on the Michelin T63s that are sitting in the back of my garage. I commute on this bike most days hence my preference for staying with the shinkos. They work fine for gravel/dirt roads and I can tip-toe through short sections of deep sand/mud with them, but if we will be encountering long sections of that stuff several times a day the T63 would be a smarter move....

Thanks, John

Not riding a KLR, but I'm using 606's on my x-challenge. These tires are perfect for all conditions.....except my bank account.

If I end up there and I end up on the 525 I'll run a set of Deserts, but if I end up there on the 640 I'll probably run the 908/606 combo I ran to CroMag that I really like

The KOA campground (the Friday night) got in touch. They were having issues with the website but can now take bookings. That being said they seem to have assured us that space will not be an issue so you can also just show up

They also indicated there is a large common area where we can have a fire and a get together for that night
