    Great photos and awesome video! Your diehards when it comes to rain.

    Any opportunities to go for a ride this long weekend?

    I'm running out of time to do the head of the Dragon.

    Cheers

    Do you know the route? If you've never done it there are a couple forks on Sandy Lake rd. that will get you lost.

    Timmins to HWY 560 is easy. Just stay on route until you hit 560. Hang a right and about 20 kms later you fuel up at Spruce Shilling gas station.

    Here is the track for the south of 560 section...

    https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Shin...0x4d2539928ab97941:0x83b2d377a4f41dbd!1m0!3e0

    From Spruce Shilling station you take 560 to Sandy lake rd.
    Several kms in you need to go south on the fork. On the map you can see it's straight for a few kms right after the fork.
    The track only goes to the last fork that will mess you up. You need to stay south.
    Zoom in on Google Earth and you will see it goes straight, not the ziggy line Google drew. Going straight here will take you to the western poleline and will be rougher and overgrown. There may also be downed trees that can be impassable. If you take the south fork you will see it crosses the eastern poleline and somewhat follows it down to Portelance road. This is your prefered route.

    If you need any more info let me know. Have a safe ride. :-)

    Hi fellas! I'm stopping by to say hi. looks like ya'll are having a great time in the Sudbury area. Damn It's really nice to see the pictures on this thread to remind me of what it looks like back home! I grew up in Hanmer (the valley), been living in Calgary for about 15 years. all of my family still lives in the Suds. if I ever make the trip out there on my bike i'd love to tear up some gravel and trails with ya! Safe riding this season to all of you! Cheers!! p.s. if any one is ever passing through Cowtown let me know the wife and I would be happy to put you up and you can use my garage to do any wrenching that needs to be done. i'm a hell of a cook too!!!

    Hey there Sertao77, I'm a Valley boy too. Is 77 your birth year? If so I don't think we hung out as I'm a bit older. LOL.

    Thanks for the track, unfortunately I have to take the highway back. I did take 560 over to Grassy Lake road today, so I did get some gravel in, new tire is hooking up. Checked the mileage on the old Michelin 6965 kms, 1st flat was at 6900 kms in the ran! IMG_0691[1].JPG IMG_0694[1].JPG
