    hi folks , just thought i would put a little trip report here. The sunday before 4th of july i took off north from Joliet Il, and ended up in Grand Forks ND that night. the next few days were spent leasurely riding both the roads and trails headed to Ste Sault Marie.

    I think the north shore of Superior is THE most beautiful place i have ever been

    Looks like you had a fine trip. 1000km a day is a lot of road. What saddle are you using?

    So you have a Roadcrafter and the Kalahari suit?! What's the story with that?

    Ride on, Kurt! Thanks for the pictures. Since the BMW INTERnational rally will be in Ontario next year, you may see a few of us left-coasters passing thru. Keep in touch.

    Via con Dios!
