    So a riding partner that day confirmed that it was still attached up until Hopetown so that eliminates most of the ride and bring it down to just:
    Wolf Grove between Hopetown and Middleville, Galbraith to Concession Rd. 10C to Tatlock Rd. to Bellamy Mills Rd., to Ramsey Con 7b to Bennies Corners Rd., Blakeney Rd, Ridge Road, Panmure Rd. Donald B Munro, Thomas A Dolan Pkwy, Marchurst RD. and Murphy Side road.


    It's gone:(

    I'm an inmate displaced from the Maritimes to Renfrew County (specifically Petawawa) and looking for like-minded inmates!

    Hey Jacob, welcome to the area. We met you a few years ago in NL, Stephanie and I, after Canoeman’s unfortunate accident.

    Yup. DRs are gone now. Miss mine a lot but I needed a bike that would allow a passenger and the DR was just too small for that.

    I’d love to have another DR but insurance is too much to have multiple bikes now.

    The DR is a solid bike but yeah I get the insurance issue.

    I bought a DRZ in the spring and rebuilt it for rally riding so I could give my KLR a break. Then I made the mistake of riding a Husqvarna 701 so I sold the DRZ and put a deposit on the Husky. I'm still waiting for the dealer to deliver (almost 4 weeks later).

    Then the KLR developed an electrical snag so I'm currently between bikes until the Husky arrives.

    I'm getting a bit squirrelly not having ridden in nearly a month.

    On another topic, I'm trying to find .gpx tracks for the area above Golden Lake up to Black Bay Rd with no luck. Does anybody have anything?

    I can manually create them but that takes ages.

    Done and done!

    I've got a few hundred on the new 701 up round these parts and I'm slowly adding new trails I discover to my database of places!

    It's great but the season is slipping away quickly! I'm trying to get as much seat time on this husky as I can!

    Sick spot! I've been trying to get out, but between the new job and Mrs. Valley Rally's b-day week (not quite sure how a birth DAY has turned into a birth WEEK.....), I've been missing out. Wednesday looks like it might be nice.... feel a 24 hour bug coming on... *cough* *cough* :lol3
