    Miscreants.

    Glad to hear he's going to be ok...could have been much worse for both of you!

    No problem. I enjoyed the riding the GS home. Very comfy like a big couch and solid through the corners...but it felt like I was pushing a couch in the parking lot!

    Scrubbed the chicken strips a little chasing DrCool and Motoaxe down some twisties, then tried the GS out on Taylor road to see how the beast handled off road. Even had a fun 50 yard water crossing. She's a bit dirty but unscathed :evil

    No, Im not going to the dark side...but it would be a nice addition to my garage. No hurry picking it up :lol3

    Jeff took a spill attempting a loose gravely hill and took off his mirror.
    He said whats behind him is of no importance anyway :huh

    We then found some water...........

    And some real deep sand.

    The next day 4 of us got together and decided to ride some easy stuff for the day.

    Had to stop about 4 times for Jeff to reattach his gas can, as it turned out we only put on about 10k in the first 2 hours so gas was the least of our problems.

    Ok, where to start..., what a great bunch, despite a small mishap I had a great time, great riding partners, trails etc. Not like me to leave a party early very often, I was tired Friday and wanted to save myself for Sat. ride/party,had I known friday that I would have "mobility issues":lol3 on Sat, I would have imbibed more. Next time, I promise:freaky . I like to ride where Im going, but I did learn the wisdom of a trailer, If you are going to push the limits of bike and self, you might not want to bust up you only ride home if you only have a couple days. On to the pic.s

    The ride up From the Sarnia area Friday was windy and a bit tiring, but after a stop here in Dorset, the rest of the ride up hwy 35 to Dwight got the blood pumping again.
    [​IMG]

    Being a little slow on the draw, meant I had to stay down the road in the rustic(what, no towels:lol3 ) little cabin.
    [​IMG]

    Well rested, I was up early Sat. to a frosty -2 on the bike thermo.
    [​IMG]

    Over to the Wolfs den, where we formed a group of 4 to hit the trails on a frosty morn.
    [​IMG]

    We set out on D101B south from Oxtongue Rapids making slow progress due to conditions and Jeff's dangly bits, lol. We must have been working hard and having too much fun for many pic.s as none of the nasty(fun)stuff got a lot of coverage.

    Hmm.....wheres Jeff:D
    [​IMG]

    We finally got to the "T" and were warned that a gate could be closed if we tried to get back out, so after a little exploring we decided to go back out and run Toutspawn rd. to the lake and beyond down sled trail #65.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Somewhere after this in the wet pureed moose shit covered ATV tracks, some moron fell over and got a boo boo, what a wuss. That was on the last 400 yards to the road which took quite some time, sweat, swearing and general fun to get to this blocking access to the nice dry road.
    [​IMG]

    The injured moron now had developed a bad attitude dove right in and went for it making a successful trip to the right only suffering wet feet and a few years loss of clutch life. I ...ahem, I mean "he" then ran for his camera to film the others coming through just as........, they found a easier way around:huh

    It looked alot worse than in the pic...., really!
    [​IMG]

    Thanks to the rest of the guys for sticking with me and doing mellower rides for the rest of the day, as I said, a great bunch. We had a good lunch at the Fiery in Dorset , then did the Sherborne rd., which is a fun gravel/rock run back to the lake which was gorgeous as usual.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Wrapped it up with a run back to Baysville, then up South Portage rd. and home again. Great day, cant wait to do it all again, thanks to everyone who put this together, especially the guys who kept helping me pick up my bike, lol:clap .

    One last one from the trip home about halfway between Thorton and Shelburne, love that road.

    Cheers, Todd

    Well, Damn, that was fun!

    Really glad we tried it two-up, particularly with the scala setup allowing us to shoot the shit along the way.

    Ron - the image of you bearing down on that gate is seared into my memory. :rofl Surprised it wasn't us since we had lost the rear brake for good by that time. Good times.

    :deal It's a real shame we can't do this every weekend.

    Great pics everyone! :clap :clap :clap

    I had a fantastic time. It was great to have a good turnout once again. Like most of you, I was too busy riding and forgot to take pictures :lol3 I do have a couple that I will post soon.

    Stay tuned for confirmation about next years event. We should be able to get the entire Wolfden reserved for us so that nobody is left without a bunk. We've tentatively set the date for Sept 30-Oct 2, 2011.
