Great to see your back is healed up, & your KLR is dialed in for the ride up North, Lappeman!
Have a good run.

Thanks Hekto! Back isn't a 100 percent but much better than it was! Hopefully it'll be a good ride...knock on wood

Good day all.
A couple of pic's of the new to me DR 750 from last weekend. It was our vintage bike club's annual "Isle of Man(itoulin)" and this year's theme was thumpers so my recent acquisition fit in nicely. At 24 she's not really vintage but still garnered lots of attention. I'd planned to have the Panther, (truly vintage) on the Island but it's just not quite ready for prime time.

At the Gore Bay harbor---



And at the ferry dock, South Baymouth ---



I hope everyone continues to enjoy the summer riding season...

Hey everyone, I am living in Kenora, ON, I have been here for around 5 years. Currently I am riding a 99 F650 and a Triumph Speedmaster. I am looking at selling both and trying to find a 08+ F650gs.

I am not very active here, but after attending the last D2D and heading up the Dempster i met a lot of riders that frequent here, so thought i would poke around a little more. I am glad i found this thread, I would love to see a get together in Kenora on a nice weekend in the future!

Hit me up any time.

Ben

Did the same trip last year. It was an anniversary year for D2D and had a great time. Did you make it to Inuvik? Met a fellow this year who tried it but the road was closed past Eagle Plains.

I am in Dryden and there are a few of us here who ride local. As for myself I am heading to the Black Hills on the KLR this weekend. Meeting a guy from Wyoming that we traveled the Dempster with last year.

The Winnipeg thread also has some folks that may be closer to you. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=472265 They are always looking for an excuse to get off the windy old prairie and ride the Whiteshell and into Ontario.

The Aerostitch VBR rally is being held the weekend of Aug 23-25 at Spirit Mountain in Duluth. A bunch of us are heading down to it.

Speaking of VBR, it looks like our trip for that time has fell through and Im thinking of doing this, I got some time off before so would make trip out of it but would look forward to meeting some of you there.

Backroader, I think we met at EOAR, I believe we had....shall we say a leisurely stroll from the fire back to the tents with Brian that night......no?

Cheers, Todd
