    Sorry to play dumb, Greg, but I cannot translate "noise to horsepower ratio" Is that railway jargon? :D

    I think it means the louder the bike the less back pressure it produces and given the dated engine design the only actual power produced comes from the thrust provided by the pipes. Thus more noise = less power.

    But loud pipes do save lives. After one of those belching beasts passes you (rare occation) you slow down to get away from all the noise. :poser

    I try to max it out as much as possible but this summer has really sucked...for me anyway! :cry In a couple of weeks I'll be spending 7 days kayaking in Quetico! Don't know how that rates on most people's funmeter...but I'm looking forward to it! :evil

    Been pretty quiet around here lately. Don't know if it's the weather or if everyone is off on an adventure. NorthRider is down in Colorado with BackRoader, not sure where everyone else is! I'll probably be just hanging around home...was going to hare scramble race this weekend in the States but decided not to risk hurting myself. Need to stay healthy for my Kayak trip coming up!

    I have on my docket to get to the Gunflint Cross to see it. Saturday could be a good day to do this for me. I'm coming up from the States, so meeting at the Silver Mountain Station Restaurant on 588 is one option. Might have to walk a little to get there since some of the trestles are gone, and may limit access. And then, the challenge can be to actually get the moto there.

    Hey Mike! Would love to go but my tires are completely bald and could easily get a flat on the backroads down there. Have new tires but no time to change them out! Have a good trip!

    I and Gus Chronopoulos on our 1190 R's missed Finndian (and Kari) when we stopped at the awesome Jones Motorsports in Wawa. Russ helped us with directions for a rugged dirt ride to Dubreuville. Two days later visiting Aerostich in Duluth who pulls in but Finndian/Gord and Kari. Small cool world.

    Vermillion Bay Fall Ride:
    Further to my previous post,
    Looks like rooms are available in VBay for the last weekend of September and or the first weekend in October.
    Nothing special, rates are about $45.00 to $50.00 per person based on 2 to a room. Continental breakfast included.
    The town has the basics, liquor store, gas station and a restaurant..
