Good luck!

This RR got my attention (I grew up in the old Nepean, now Ottawa). Looking forward to following your progress... Best of luck, and hopefully we get a nice "leaving Ottawa" photo!

Sounds great!

If you find yourself in the London Ont area tired let me know and I'll get the fire lit. It's a good days ride from Ottawa so maybe your first stop as long as you don't mind the 401 route. Only problem is that you'll have to leave before I get up or else you may never get rid of me! My bikes ready and I'm planning a TDF trip hopefully this fall.

Just an option.

Good luck!

Good luck on your planned TDF trip.

Bike and Gear

The last few days have been hectic to say the least, getting all my gear ready and tying up business ends so that my two sons can take over one side of the business and my wife the other, so then of course like clock work Murphys law did take over the wife ends up in the hospital, all is well now and she will be release on July 2. Departure will be a little later then planned but hopefully on July 3 if all goes well, I will make sure all is really good before I go because I don't need any bad karma to go along.


And as promised the bike and gear list.








I decided to go for a 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200 this after a lot of research and some test rides, I guess time will tel if this choice was good, so far after 14000km's I'm very satisfied with it, and as for the additions I have modded the windshield (made it longer), added heated grips, Givi crash-bar and side racks, Garmin AMPS rugged mount, tool tube, hatchet tube, cup holder (great for holding all kinds of little shit), ABS off switch, riding lights, highway pegs, 2 water bottle holders, Dirt-Skins on front shocks, Mitas E-07 Dakar tires, home made rear fender splash guard and bash plate, also set the stock seat position to front side high and rear low plus a sheep skin to make this somewhat bearable, and 2 Pelican storm 2600 side cases with modded attach plates for more strength (found out it was to weak during dump test).


Riding gear: Shark Evoline 2 helmet, Tour Master transition 2 jacket, Rev-It Cheyenne paints, Triumph Tri-Tex boots, Tour Master Dri-Mesh gloves, long leather gloves, light leather jacket, Icebreaker under garments.


Electronics: Samsung phone, Garmin Montana 600 GPS, Acer netbook, Polaroid action camera, and a HP camera (don't laugh it was free).


Camping stuff: Tarp, hammock, jetboil, and 2 sleeping bags.


Some tools, two 60 litre dry sacks, back pack and some spare parts.


The above is just a short list, there are lots of other little things and I will make a complete list towards the end of the trip and let you know what worked and what not.


Many thanks to all of you coming along.
