    Kevin and I rode the balance of the route last Friday so, I'm just putting the finishing touches on the route.

    To clarify, the Weslemkoon Lakefest flyer suggests tickets have to be purchased in advance. The Northumberland Trail Riders will be letting Frank know the numbers in attendance just prior to the date. We are all ready getting a good response to the weekend.

    I'm in Toronto and I'm interested in this ride, I'd be coming with a buddy of mine. I have a Husaberg Fe390 blue plated and he's got a Klx250S.
    I'd be more interested in a trail/enduro ride, rather then a big bike dual sport ride.

    With the weather looking fantastic, I have received a few emails asking when we plan to depart on Saturday so, I plan to arrive at around 9:30 am and leave the Timmies at 10:00 am with gas tanks full and bladders empty.

    It was a great 2 days of DS riding! A big thanks to John (Ontario GS) for organizing and leading the ride.

    I think there was 12 adventure bikes at the Port Perry Tim Horton's Saturday morning, all with tents and sleeping bags packed onto the bike in various ingenious ways. I didn't get a proper count but I think the bikes included a KTM 690, 990, BMW 650, 800, 1200, a DRZ400, a KLR650, a Sherpa, and in a surprise upset, the most popular bike on this ride: Triumph Tiger 800XC's. (3 of them)

    Didn't take too many pics, too busy dodging large rocks and such, but here's a few:
