    When I was at the show. I stopped at the Connex Booth at spoke with Lee for a while. He says the Dacre is big bike friendly. I asked about water crossings and he thought nothing over the pegs. There will be 3 large loops this year all returning to Dacre. All support will be a maximum 45 min away if required. Also the event now allows 24 hours to complete.
    Still sounds like a tough event as Gronk states. I'm still interested in participating in the AVD Bike class.

    Gents thinking about organizing a 3 - 4 day big bike adventure rally for Northern Ontario. Starting and ending in Sudbury. GPS navigation , with specials for the more advanced rider.
    Distance 300 to 400 kms per day, stay at lodges , hotels or camping.
    Looking at fall dates (September)

    What do you think??

    Sounds interesting to me! If it’s in the first couple of weeks in September, I’m in. I’ve already got that time booked off.

    Cheers

    Those days for the bike show should work for me. I’ve got to work Sunday night. I’ll keep in touch as we get closer.

    I’m always in for a beer, provided I’m not working

    I know you have the Mosko soft panniers, what rack system did you go with?
    Can you get the KTM Myride navigation app to work on the bike? My phone connects to the bike but the app doesn't see it.

    Gents, Looks like Sept 6 to 9 are the dates for the Northern Ontario Adventure.
    4 sections, each about 450 kms per day, majority of route will be logging roads, with some black top.
    Sudbury to Obabika via Mattawa and Marten River.
    Obabika to Post 392 via, North side of Wanapitei Lake, Shinning Tree and Grassy Lake Road
    Post 392 to Flame lake Lodge, via Moonbeam and Sultan
    Flame Lake Lodge to Sudbury, Via Search Mount, run north of Elliot Lake through Ritchie Falls, to Sudbury
    Currently looking at lodging, Obabika Lake Lodge, Post 392 or Cedar Meadows, Flame Lake Lodge
    Here is a look at suggested route
