    Well, it was a blast ! We left Montreal with a -9°C, other crazies joined us on the road and 230 kms later (with snow showers) we were on the site with a nice blue sky. Beers, BBQ and a nice bonefire to warm up our bones. Cold night with a -28°C. Cozy and warm in the yourte. All batteries dead in the morning, had to boost all the non russian bikes while all the Urals started with the kick start ! Some pics

    Did ya see there where High Octane said "Cool"? Quite.

    Great pics!

    I assume you plan this outing every year for the first weekend after the (March 15th) tire prohibition ends?

    Thanks. You are right ! That was the 4th edition already. It all started in 2015 with 3 guys during a snow storm :-)
    The Suzuki DL650 had legal winter tires, did super well on ice and snow compared to the other solo bikes (they all fell)
