    todd, are you off this week. Or next week.

    Me and my bro inlaw are thinking of going up to Manitoulin for a two day trip. Maybe next Monday, Tuesday. Or possibly Sunday, Monday.

    I dont know if anyone here would be interested in that.

    I have been thinking about doing a trip up that way.I'm interested in going. Guess i'll have to order a new back tire for the bike this week.It will need one to do that trip.

    Would be nice to get in a ride this week also.

    My neighbours two doors down are in the process of moving out. The house is empty, the garage is empty, house is for sale and unoccupied, but I noticed a KTM 990 Adventure parked in the garage today. I thought I had (previously) the only 990 in these parts. Any idea who might be the proud owner??

    The only KTM I have ever seen around here has been an enduro. Saw the guy a few times on Hwy 18 between LaSalle and Amherstburg. I'd love to see your bike. How's the neck? You ready to ride? I keep looking for you every time I see the SUV. Maybe I should be checking the Tim Horton's lot? :*sip*

    Hey guys,

    Just a note to let you know about the 2010 Fall Colours Ride October 1-3.
    This is an awesome event. Check out the thread in the Canada Regional Forums. I have booked my room. I plan to drive up in my truck on the 1st which is a Friday. If someone else is interested I would consider towing my car trailer up to load the bikes on and splitting the cost of gas. I would have room for three to four riders and bikes. Be warned though, this is a fast paced ride and not for the timid! Send me a PM if interested.

    I know it is kinda short notice. Junac and I are going for a ride tomorrow on the trail that goes to St. Thomas.If anyone else would like to go they can meet us at the Timmy's in Blenheim(corner of #3 highway and #8) at 9:00am. Will be departing at 9:30.
    There is a gas station just down the road from Timmy's so anyone that needs to can fuel up.
    We will pick the trail up on Kent Bridge Rd. Now some of this trail is posted for snowmobile use just to let anyone that comes know. I have ridden on this trail a few times now and never had a problem, and i can tell by the tracks on it that it is being used alot.
