    I set a limit on Jamaicans in the side car....but I state that in both official languages with winter tires on bike,...well, hand drawn snowflakes anyway.

    Stephanie and I got out on the DRs today, doing back roads North of Calabogie, towards Renfrew and back. Lots of wildlife out there, these days. Surprised many deer, a rabbit, racoon and even spotted a beaver on the Sammon road. He's got the water running right over the road. The beaver looked to me like he must have weighed near 75 pounds or so. Wouldn't want to challenge that one.

    Had a picnic down by Calabogie lake.

    Does its job while I am mobile. Admittedly, I don't need it on the tablet, as the browser and display size are fine. Just the iPhone.

    If you're using Tapatalk 1, you'll eventually run into the picture maximum, and need to buy the image pack. I think it'll upload 30 pics before requiring the purchase. It's cheap, but still an eventual requirement.

    I hate that it won't stop showing threads you've unsubscribed to.

    Hi Everyone:

    Finally considering the Trans Labrador Highway (either this fall or maybe next year). Looking at a route from Ottawa and going CW. I have been gathering info and ride reports but posting this here looking for some local knowledge and experience. Need to balance the best trip against the shortest time. Don't mind the long days.

    Riding on a BMW GS and will run TKCs. May run TKC from here or will consider mounting them en route.

    Any comments appreciated.

    Mike

    In Trip planning forum there is a Trans Lab info section by Newfie Rider that will be of help to you.

    Thanks. Yes, been reading that one as well as others. Sorry, I don't want to turn this into a trip planning thread. If any of you have done the trip, maybe drop me a PM.

    I'm still a new rider.
    Racked up about 1000 asphalt miles in the last couple weeks on my new to me KLR.
    Planning to head out to the Calabogie area on Saturday. Looking to leave Kanata and make my way to California road, by way of
    March Rd, though Almonte to Wolf Grove Rd, and Darling Rd to California Rd and explore as much dirt as I can find in the general area with the goal of finding areas I might return to hunt and fish.

    I'm not setup for hard core single track. I'm a Carhartts and hiking boots dual sporter, until the budget allows more gear. I'll be carrying snacks, water, a few tools and tire repair gear in a backpack.

    If anyone is is interested in taggin along, (bonus if you know the Calabogie area), let me know.

    I'd come along... I like those routes you planned. I've been on them before.
    Unfortunately Im working weekends for the next two weeks... I'll touch base with you then for a ride. Cheers

    A buddy of mine is probably coming up from Bolton this weekend to do some riding. I will probably take him down the California Rd, the Hydro line and then the K&P. When do plan on leaving Saturday?
