Thanks for taking the time to comment. It's really appreciated.
Very good pictures. I like the way they were layed out. Well written also. Whenever I tour on my Pacific Coast the local chicks always want to run their hands over all that smooth plastic, did you have the same experence?...gibinmich
I'm happy to see that you thought it was o.k. I almost didn't write it since there's so many really good ones on here. About that smooth plastic though, I must not have as smooth a plastic as you do? Anyway, I don't recall those kinds of experiences! It sounds good though.
Very good photos. Reminds me of my own travels in Michigan.
Now that you are 'experienced' with the ride report thingy, where is the next destination?
I'm not sure where that might be but it's looking like I might not make the PCH ride this Sept. I will probably keep it down to several days for now. Some of these RR's are totally awesome though, and I love reading about all of these great adventures!
Thanks for your comments. Take care, Gary
Thanks much for your comment. I loved riding in MI and wonder where you did your riding? Also, I see L.A. mentioned and wonder if that's where you live now? Job change or something? Anyway, thanks again. Gary "Oldone"

Really nice to have another road warrior share their experiences. Wife and I took a week in Nova Scotia but I have yet to figure out how to post photos stored on an iPad. Your trip covers areas we want to do as well. Will be using your RR for reference. Thanks! Great pics!
Thanks much for your comments as I sure appreciate them. I always feel pretty weak when it comes to providing anything of much value, so I hope that you can find something that will be helpful.
I hope you can get those photos figured out so that I can read your RR.
Thanks again, Gary "Oldone"
My trusty (so far) Pacific Coast bike that's been going along without any problems for three summers
here in Minnesota. The only things that I've done have been the normal oil/filter and clutch and brake
fluid changes. I also have a 1998 PC out in Arizona and that one's been trouble-free too. Going back 50
odd years, these are by far the nicest all-around bikes I"ve ever had.
This was taken after my Arizona Grampa's National Monument Ride last year and it included a ride through the
beautiful Oak Creek Canyon. It was my first ride report and a real learning experience!
I want one of these
I enjoyed a good "wook"
It's great to see you out on the road!
thanks for taking us along,
You're going to have go to Ont. for one of those. Thanks for taking a "wook" and don't forget to let me know when your next RR is in the works.
If you find some slightly more aggressive tires for that PC, I can some even more rides, near Thunder Bay!
I just happened to see this.. Sitting in a hotel south of Minneapolis. I've been on the road a week, and going around Superior was part of the trip.
Your RR showed me all the stuff I missed. Now I have to ride it again.
I was under a time crunch, so I took off from Blind River, Ont, and ended up going completely around and back into the US in one day. I was so tired I just pitched a tent down on the beach about 10 miles south of the Border.
My original plan was to camp in Thunder Bay, but there aren't any campgrounds!:eek1
I goofed around for a hour or more trying to find a place to camp (Garmin took me to a storage lot, across the neatest old bridge with RR tracks down the middle.)
I finally gave up and headed south.. No camping anywhere, it's all north of Thunder Bay..
Beautiful country, I will ride it again. Your RR shows all I missed, thanks for taking the time.
Lucky for me there's not much available for dirt tires for my PC.....I'm likely to dump it for sure. I did hit a stretch of soft sand a few weeks ago when I ran into construction. First time for me on that kind of road. Ufta! :eek1
I'd like to find out more about your trip when you find the time. I'm not sure where Blind River is and how far that you had to ride that day? I was also wondering where you started out from?
I wouldn't mind riding it myself, maybe even next summer. Anyway, thanks for your comments.
Gary, I got your PM and replied. I just checked the maps again. It looks like it's 845 km from Blind River to Thunder Bay. I went a lot more than that driving around looking for a campsite, where none existed, then going down to the border, and on to the lake side "beach" campsite..
It was a long day..
I rode down Hwy. 71 today and was thinking of how close you came to our place. The freeway going to Mpls./St. Paul is almost 100 miles from us so you must've put in another long day on the way there? I don't think I have those kinds of miles in me anymore!
