    I know the organizers don't have their site up and running yet, but I'm throwing this out there to see if I can drum up a partner to ride this event. My plan is to ride to Upper Canada, do the event and then ride back home. Any takers? As far as I know they're planning to run in June when the days are long....:ricky

    You're welcome to stay anywhere you would like, the place we mentioned above is only a suggestion - not a requirement.

    However, it happens to be the most affordable campground in the immediate area where we would like to use it as a starting point for the weekend + it has enough facilities to host the number of people we're expecting.

    That being said, if you live in the area, by all means join us on Saturday morning for the ride. The proposed route is only a suggestion. I also highly recommend you split off into small groups for the day. We (I) are not tour guides.

    As per the route, I've taken a lot of suggestions from many people (local to the area) + some GPS datum and have combined it to create a route which hit's as many sweet spots as possible. So far, it looks absolutely fantastic. Download the file (see link just above or attachment below)

    I will be looking for a partner as well. I ride a 650 too, so neither one will out-gun the other TOO badly on the fast stuff.

    I will be slumming it a bit riding with a KTM, but I am sure the emotional scars will heal!!:lol3

    You may want to choose someone else for various reasons, but I am looking for a partner as well, so keep me in mind.

    :nod... you can bet yer DRZ, this will cover some of the best terrain in Ontario!!!

    .....and no crazy single track, this will be a sublime compilation of logging and fire access roads + double track. Fun, fast and flowing knobbie tire terrain.

    Absolutely not, the way I see it, we're offering other organizers (as well as the riders, of course) a chance to take part in an event and enjoy themselves.

    Feel the love.... :webers

    I have been in the area where the event is happening for 20+ years... imagine free reign of 40k of crown land with your choice of dirtbikes, atv's and sleds from the age of 11 till 32 :evil :evil
