Hoping to have gps files, decals, etc ready by the end of March

Day One - 350 km (approx)
- 3 notable water crossing
- a fun hydro line trail
- some rail trail stuff
- predict fast guys finish in 7-8 hours

Day Two - 700 km (approx)
- ferry crossing into Quebec
- mostly sand and gravel roller coaster roads
- a few bail out spots
- predict fast guys finish in 9-11 hours

Day Three
- ferry crossing (different ferry than day 2) back into Ontario
- 2 routes, first route is a paved "get me the heck outta here", second route is a "I want more because I am a glutton for punishment"

GPS files provided in GPX format (tracks not routes)

Maps provided

Text document with relevant information (lodging, ferry costs, distance between fuel stops, etc)


Met with Flanny and Juames last weekend and went over some details....it is looking like a good one


See ya in June

Wasn't at EOAR last year, was there two years ago...I did have a red KLR with usd forks though. You bringing the KLR or the PD to the Roaming Rally? Read your Fly n Ride thread...that's one nice looking Beemer!

That R80G/S-PD went to a new home in Quebec. I'll be on the KLR.

Looking forward to this one!

The R100GSPD's down for a stem to stern re & re. It'll be a sort of '80's type Dakar racer/tourer when it re-emerges. The KLR's no 640Adv, but it's a good all rounder and plenty useful in it's own right.

I heard ubert ran his Honda out of oil.
