    Well ,it wasn’t as long a ride as I planned but managed to ride 115 miles ( 180kms). It was colder than I anticipated, but then again I’ve been a lot colder on a bike ride . It was great riding again . Hope to get out again next weekend .

    All that effort spent refinishing the signs, and they go with the cheapest fasteners. :twitch

    Yep, alongside the Dog River. Was a nice ride but still lots of snow in the bush! Most of the ice is gone on Little Dog and the river when Hydro lowered the lake level in Dog Lake last month!

    haha, excellent! I would have grabbed that for sure if I didn't pick up a gen2 that needs some work after a unschuled meeting with a deer.

    I picked up a 2001 last year for a steal and ended up trading it with a fellow on Tbay for a CRF250L. I didn't get much time with it, but would like to get a gen 1.

    Does it need a lot of work? Looks like a great deal from what I can see.

    Seems like it just needs a carb cleaning...he ran it on the road up until last fall. I think it will pass safety the way it is.

    I got out for about 100 km the other day...mostly backroads. Trowbridge Falls East Current, Onion Lake, stuff like that. The bike felt great!

    (I see you can finally post a pic on here without having to host it! About time!)

    Anyone been on the non-paved roads from sudbury to timmins this year (portelance rd and grassy rd)? Last account I read was that the road was impassable in one spot and I wanted to know if that's still the case.

    Has anyone riden English River Road from Reddit to Ear Falls lately? Is it passable on a R1100GS and KLR650. Mainly asking about the GS, KLRs can go to Mars and back :)

    Will try the Winnipeg tread as well.

    Thanks
