    It does still kinda have my interest. A few logistical things to work out, but the Iron Class sounds straight forward enough, just a long day in the saddle. The disqualification for speeding on public roads might be the toughest part!!

    Who's going to Dacre? We didn't field a team this year but I got recruited as support truck driver so I'll be down there this weekend.

    Hello everyone, I am in the planning stages of a 10 day dualsport ride and need some help/advice with a 190 mile section between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie. We are looking to stay on dirt as much as possible and looking to cover this section in 1 to 2 days. We are average riders, both are on late model ktm 500 exc, hoping to stay in motels but will be carrying camping gear and packing light. Both bikes have @ 200 mile gas range. The trip starts in Merricville,Ont and will ride the T-CAT to SUDBURY,Ont., then cross into Michigan to ride the 700 mile MCCCT. We plan to rent a truck to get back home in Western Massachusetts when we run out of time. Thanks in advance.

    Hey Suds17, have you been out around Capreol at all this season yet? I'm looking to try the Capreol to Shining Tree loop (take Hwy 144 back) and know it can get pretty messy this time of year. Cheers

    I havent been up that way yet this year, most likely still snow. I was up to Timmins last week and there was still a lot of snow in the bush.

    I wouldn't recommend a big bike on the Capreol - Shinning Tree loop right now. I haven't seen it yet but there are typically washouts, flooding and the road is very soft in sections. Stay away if you ride a BMW, there's no Starbucks in Shinning Tree. :lol3

    Seems it will be a trip for a later date. It's the same story, slow a melt this year.

    Today I tried taking the gravel roads from timmins to sudbury (never been on them before). Timmins to hwy 560 is a wide well maintained gravel road the entire way. The section south of 560 (sandy lake rd, then fryer rd) starts out the same, but gets progressively worse. I nearly tucked the front during a fairly steep descent over some loose large rocks and just barely managed to stay upright. Eventually I made it to a washout. As I was alone I didn't think I could make it across so I doubled back to 560 then took the 144. I think the washout was about 65 kms from 560, so that is 130 kms of gravel I rode for nothing. Was really hoping to make it to sudbury on gravel. I also saw 2 bears on sandy lake rd.

    We made it through the washout 2 weeks ago on wr250 's. You will need to go around the culvert through water, not deep . We walked the bikes through. I think i saw the same bears!

    Does it get easier or harder south of the washout?
