    I know we'll see lots of beautiful pics from this awesome weekend.

    Here is my contribution:

    Rumrunner, Babcaygeon and Shakyhands and I rode up together Friday and took the "long way round". Went up through Bobcaygeon (with BobCaygeon) and took the fire acces road along Cyrstal lake, Elephant lake Road, Peterson Road (a motorbiker's dream road), and then from Whitney through the Park. Here we are taking a break after some spirited riding through the bush around Cyrstal Lake.

    Hey all,

    What an awesome weekend, and the rain held off enough to enjoy a colourful, leisurely ride through some great roads and trails.
    Also great to see some new faces, :thumb be sure and come out again for another adventure :ricky :eek1

    Here's a few pics......

    Hey, Mtrhead, you budded in.


    Back to the way up on Friday...


    Shakyhands, Bob and I took a short walk to a look out. the colours were not all that vibrant in the picture because it was gloomy and rainy.

    They were happy to do the walk with me, really...they were...

    I am surprised you could catch Mtrhead in a pic! That bike was usually moving so fast (and 2 up!) even the best cameras and photographers would have trouble! :eek1

    Great shot!

    Awesome time. :clap :clap :clap :clap :clap

    Ian / Mike: Great route Saturday, and Ron, thanks for showing a few of us the Powerline trail between Whitney & 'Dysart' this morning. That was a lot of fun!

    And KevinG: that shot of the repair in Sprucedale should go to ADV admin for inclusion in the gallery! It's got adventure written all over it: older airhead; foul weather approaching, on the spot repair; and help nearby...

    More pics, please - all of you.

    Fantastic weekend Guy's and Gal's!!:clap

    Maggie and I didn't get home til after 6. What a ride,dodging highways and thunderstorms. From Friday's swim up the highway to this afternoons backroad blast that was another great time. It was great to meet the n00bs, and really good to see Diablo pulling a Drif pattented "drop by say hi" and drive off into the night.

    A big thanks to our support crews for the Beer and Gear deliveries. We arrived home to find kegs and bags had been dropped for our arrival.

    Thanks Sue and Ian, Catherine and Les you guy's Rawk.

    Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend, that Pot-Luck was outstanding and the bench racing was one of the highlights. The Cooks certainly brought the goods. I'm pretty sure I even had some outstanding Pastry at 2am.:evil

    THANKS TO ALL.

    Special thanks to Larry for a great ride up and back. He even included a tour of downtown Lindsay. LOL.

    And thanks to whoever arranged to have the moose at the side of the road on Fri nite. You ADV riders think of everything.

    Wow...what a weekend!

    We never got an official head count....or group photo for that matter, but by my best guesstimate we had even more people than last year. I'm sure if the weather had co-operated a bit more, we would have been over 50 bikes for sure.

    As always, great to see the regular FF's and really nice to meet some new faces once again! :clap

    Some pictures of the ride....

    The dirty group....

    For those who missed the last section of the route, Old Wagon Trail was beautiful...but had its challenging spots...
    [​IMG]

    Of course all that riding built up an appetite...and what would Fall Colours be without the food....

    Nobody went hungry..thats for sure!

    [​IMG]

    and as always...the bench racing and laughs were second to none...
