Maybe not if you are up front about it (or at least a small fib). As said earlier there are people from the US who have seasonal residence here and they have locally registered and insured vehicles.

Thanks G
My start date is the 15th in Dryden. You guys will have to keep me posted if your doing any riding. I will have much more free time for riding with the new move
So much for the trip I was going to take to the black hills this week though. I am off for the next 11 days, but they will be consumed with packing, and hunting for a place to live in Dryden

I'll be right behind Backroader in the lineup! I can honestly say that my bike spends 90% of its' life in Ontario. I want to get me a couple of those Ontario trailer plates too.......never to renew again. In Manitoba they are up to about $100/year........I think $85 is an annual registration fee that now occurs every 5 years??? I guess you don't have to go to the Public Utilities Board to get an increase in a "registration fee".

I never buy full coverage insurance. There is NO advantage to it unless you have an "at fault" accident. If the other guy is at fault, your bike is fully covered even without full coverage. Plus, I don't ride a bike worth 20K, or one that is likely to be stolen.
I figure I've save enough over the years to buy several nice new bikes. Of course, the money went to kid's education, wife's Polo Park visits and vacations. YMMV

Thanks for the video review Rob. Looks like a fine set-up! There was lots of wind noise in the video - but I think you mentioned that the older KLR is considerably lighter in weight than the new one. This should make it easier to lift when it naps in the middle of nowhere. I know when you first got your 530 you commented on how much easier it was to lift that bike.

I just got back from Lappe, but don't know where you live. I've been riding the small bikes, the BMW feels like a pig!

The difference between PL PD and full coverage on my BMWs was about $100 per bike. With the KLRs I put as a minimum comprehensive on them to cover smacking a hooved rodent (deer). The comprehensive (500 deductible) coverage is about $50 per bike for the year.

Not sure if you've been following the thread but Keith and Bryan from New Zealand are doing the Trans Canada Adventure trail (tcat) and are were here last night.
If anyone that can provide any input on any needed, go arounds on the route north of thunder bay or ride along it would be much appreciated.
there is a tcat thread here on the forum also.

12kms past Graham road on the old rail bed was washed out for GPSkevin, not sure if it's been fixed, doubt it (saw the photos of it, impassible). Turn south back down Graham road to the highway and then come back up north on the highway out of Ignace. Skip the trail section between Silver Dollar gas station and Sioux Lookout as it has two large washouts and private property and you'd be doing a lot of back tracking. Head north out of Sioux Lookout and back onto the trail and your good to go!

That washout between Sioux Lookout and Silver Dollar has been there quite a while. This is how we got across one of them on the 2006 Icebreaker.

There's a least three washout's then, I didn't even get to that one. The first on was about 200 yds in from highway and I made it thru that one with a fully loaded KLR but the second one was big and deep, didn't want to try it with the KLR being I was riding solo, so I had to back track quite a ways just to get to the highway again. The section where it crosses the highway was gated and private property. This was all back in 2010.
