    It's not so much the snow as the ice...and yes, I am getting soft in my old age!

    The 950, like me seems to get heavier every year! :gerg

    Hey Ottawa experts. Are Larose and Limerick both open now? I need to shake out a few new part installs on my new 2018 250. I al actually going to go to one of the BMA trail cleanups on 5 may. On Limerick, the BMA site says Limerick is closed for the cleaning period. On Larose, it reads more like its closed until cleanup (I forgot the exact verbiage).

    I just need a few miles of trails to shake the bugs out of the bike.

    Both areas are still closed and will hopefully open shortly after the clean up weekend.

    OFTR members will get email updates as conditions improve and riding areas open up.
    For now it’s gravel roads man. Adam and I ripped off another 300 kilometres today in the Lac Simon area - stellar roads!

    Just got back from our annual Moab trip - the trails were amazing (as usual).
    We hit Fins n Things, Sevenmile Rim, 3D, M&M, White Rim, Slickrock, Hey Joe Canyon, Bartlett, Hidden Canyon and even did the Pickle for no particular reason.

    No Dacre this year. I look forward to hearing how it goes with the new format. I was at La Classique last weekend, good times with amazing turn out, over 450 riders running 4 routes. Lee from RC was there and I think they'd like to emulate this rally which explains the changes to Dacre this year but likely RC will keep some of the Dacre flavouring as La Classique isn't hard, just a day of good riding.

    Not a lot of time this summer and I need to save some extra vacation time for Feb/Mar as I'm thinking about a return to Baja but with the 500exc, a change of underwear and a pocket full of pesos.

    Too bad, but understandable. I'll fill you in on the torment that Lee is sure to dole out to us. I am debating about Baja options, giving some serious thought to Norra Mexican 1000 entry... will have to prep the 500 if so!
