    I had a great time this weekend as well. I am totally down on doing the Bruce, do we want to do it this year, I think the ferry only runs for two more weeks as of today.

    I am tired of manhandling my GS and I see you seeking out the stuff I avoid on the 690. Think I may go for the EXC. To heck with renos!

    I must say I had a great time, the ride and apres fireside chats. It was all good. Excellent photos Martin! The plan is, next year, last weekend in September. I am going to explore the Wikwemikong area more and map it out, I think we just scratched the surface there!

    Thanks again, found some new roads and new friends. Looking forward to riding again.

    Ah hell, I really need to check this forum more often, had I had known, I would've come out for sure.

    Fox-Rad, we met a month or so ago in Sudbury at the Tim's. I was on my FJR and we spoke at some length about the Providence Rally with Kim.

    Next time fo' sho

    I won't be riding the FJR though :D

    A few more photos to round out our trip. On the way up we followed Nipissing Rd, the return leg was along The Bruce Peninsula where we got a chance to watch Jordan Szoke do his thing on a trials bike.

    Most certainly did excellente! Sometimes its good to not know that you shouldn't neccessarily be doing bushwacking like that with our Orca's of a GS.

    I really liked how we went more by intuition, did some trial and error rather than totally depend on our GPS, i.e. being off the grid. It adds to the adventure. I would not have done that Wikwemikong leg alone, and after a few dead ends would likely have turned back. Likely..no certainly turned back as I was not sure that one road was really a road for a while.

    Good times though, I am working with the band to see if we can open up those roads to get access to the myriad of roads and cow paths back there. There was soooo many branching off here and there, we just barely scraped the surface methinks. Next year eh gents?

    Lets do this again.
