    What, no bike-swallowing mud bogs, no rib-snapping wipe outs, no boulder-strewn hill climbs, no engine-killing water crossings? Doesn't sound like you guys had much fun at all :rofl(Glad everyone had a good time, kinda sorry now that I missed it)

    Great ride yesterday guys! What a blast. Thanks for leading Lorance.

    Amazing pics as well.

    That KLR is NICE (Ok - im a little biased), but really that peice of forest I drag around with me is what I use for tire irons!:lol3

    Can't wait for the next get together.

    Cheers.

    Hey guys, sorry about not meeting up yesterday. I took the M2 exit class at Humber this weekend (Fri,Sat & test on Sun) PASSED with flying colours. (at least now I can have that beer when we meet up).

    Good to see all the pics, looks like a good time was had by everyone.

    See you guys at the next meet-up.

    Cheers

    Yep he got it started, (once he drained some water out of the carbs), and off we went!
    Absolutly fantastic day of riding, my first outing with the ADVriders was all I could have hoped for and more.
    Lornce lead a great ride that had me topping out at 545 km by days end.
    I will definitly do this again.
    Thanks everyone :clap

    Here is the route led by Lornce, all the red flags I dropped along the way are gravel or dirt roads

    Hope it works, let me know, if not pm me and I'll email it to you.
