    If there are any GS riders in the greater Toronto area looking to meet up and do some light dual sport rides, or plan a long trip, drop me a line.. Maybe we can plan a few short rides in the area and possibly a longer trip to ... James Bay?... or... open to suggestions.

    Doesn't matter what you ride, as long as you are willing to ride it off the beaten track.. Check you PM.

    We went to James Bay last year, will have to post a couple of pictures when I get home. I would like to do the Trans-Labrador or Dempster highway next.

    Yes, went up mid-July with board members Bueller and Tree. Not sure exactly when to go, but July seemed most logical.

    Motozen,


    Adam, here. Keep me posted when you get your bike, would love to do some off roading, light to start sounds good. Will need help picking the bike back up.

    If this does turn into something, can I tag along too??

    I'll be able to keep up with my R-RS on the pavey stuff, and once you play in the dirt i'll just wait around until you've gotten it out of your system, and we can ride on real roads again!

    Pavey Stuff can be plenty of fun too, my 1200 GS has been a blast on the highways and I won't have to get it dirty! Looks like you have started something Motozen. Could be fun in the spring.

    unfortunately, I am between bikes :cry
    Someone took me out while riding on Richmond St downtown last summer
    wrote off the bike, and the knee is still healing.
    have fun anyway...
    I am in school now, and new bikes probably aren't in the script for a couple of years

    I am really sorry to see that, it blows. I had an accident in the spring of 2001 but I am back again.......
    Did I meet you at the bike show in TO a few years back?

    Yeah, probably.
    I expect I will pick up another bike one of these days, but it just didn't make sense to spend the cash when tuition is $16k :eek1
    Oh well...

    Hi there,

    I just got a 2003 Dakar a few weeks ago. I rode it home in -8C from a dealership. I must be crazy. Last time I rode in subzero temperatures was some 15 years ago. I honestly cannot wait for snow to melt.
    I would be interested in a joining others for a trip up north. James Bay sounds intriguing. Northern Ontario/Quebec/Labrador would also be fine. Would anyone be interested in a sort of get together in the early spring for a ride and maybe to exchange some technical tips?

    Peter
