There's the Great Canadian Bagel Shop at the Inner City Mall in Thunder Bay. Pick up a baker's dozen of bagels, plus have a bagel sandwich and some good Canadian coffee. It's all blacktop, but you do need to have your passport. There's some other nice blacktop roads on the way back, plus Kek. falls and other things to see.

Better get a camping site reserved; pickup camper and a flat trailer for the bike(s). I'll probably haul both the KLR and the DRZ, just in case.

Glad you can make it! Yer on the list!

Hey Jesse,

Looks like you're putting together another list of the usual suspects. Put me down for Friday, Saturday and maybe Sunday.

Great! It will be nice to meet you. Our GPS tutorial will be very informal, but I'll be glad to help you get it going. Also, we are planning on having ole fashion paper maps as well!

What kind of bike do you ride? Are you new to the area, new to bikes or just new to ADVrider? Either way, glad you are onboard! And don't forget to give the Wildhurst campground a call with your reservation, no need to prepay, they just want a headcount.

Picked up a WR250X with knobbies a few months ago, street bikes before. So far only rode dirt roads but, as the weather warms, I'll be doing more forest roads and single track. Look forward to the new challenge!

Great riding day today. Road with the usual suspects and a new bike. MNMusher, MikeS and Snomore were among the regular crew. Road with Chip from Ely for the first time today. He was sporting an 1150GS.

Had some expected spring clearing to do, but most of the forest roads were in great shape!


It was a union gig. One work, two watch.


Cleared enough!


A little snow left in some places, but most of the roads were pretty dry.

I assumed you were going a few weeks ago, you are number 20 on the list already. :-)
