See you there Fox. Looking forward to meeting you. No word from Junac huh? I wonder if he got locked up for his uekaleelee and moonshine criminal empire. Matter of time really. Shame.

Laugh wierd start to today!!!

Okay wierd start to the day. Frank Voellm left like 3 hours ago. and about 1.5 hours later I pull the bike out to go get new ownerships as I have misplaced my other ones. I ride 2 blocks to the first light, and I see an African Twin roll by. Thats a pretty rare sight in Canada.. So I check it out and as it passes, I see the plate.... another GERMAN plate. I've only ever seen 2 german plates in this county, and both were a few day apart. I hail the rider, talk a few and he is on his way to Ann Arbor. Oddly 3 hours ago Frank left and was riding right through Ann Arbor. Wierd isnt it?!?!?

Must be that the Germans stick together, and have a homming radar to find each other.

WTB - Suzuki DR650

I'm thinking my next bike will be a DR650. Ideally I'd like to find a ten year old bike, that's been well cared for, and with low mileage, and for a great price. There must be lots of them out there? Or maybe not in our area? Power Cycle said they haven't sold that many over the years, but I just keep imagining one sitting in a garage somewhere, and it hasn't been ridden in a while... It could exist. :)

I bought my bone stock 06 in the states a few years back and after you sink about $1000 in it it is a pretty capable dual sport that you can beat the hell out of and it will keep running.

I would keep your eyes focused state side to save some $$

I'm looking to maybe hit a beginner trail on Saturday. I'm gonna be coming from London and end up in Chatham. I searched this thread and didn't find much...

Can someone highlight this trail on a map? What skill level does it require? I've done a bit of time on a dirt road and a looser gravel road. In other words, I have no experience.

I have explored a little bit between London and Chatham but most of the good stuff seems well hidden, can't wait to get out with you guys.
Care to point out a few ones on a map for me? I'm just looking for something simple to get started with.

Thanks everyone...

Pick up a copy of back roads map book and go exploring. If you come to a road that has a no exit sign. Go down it and look for something at the end. Sometimes it's only no exit for cars ;)

Yeah, I've started to look over there. I still want to stop by your place and peek at yours, just so you can give me the skinny on what to look for and such.
