by luck we crossed paths with Ted Marshall at aero stitch today

I have on my docket to get to the Gunflint Cross to see it. Saturday could be a good day to do this for me. I'm coming up from the States, so meeting at the Silver Mountain Station Restaurant on 588 is one option. Might have to walk a little to get there since some of the trestles are gone, and may limit access. And then, the challenge can be to actually get the moto there.

Hey Mike! Would love to go but my tires are completely bald and could easily get a flat on the backroads down there. Have new tires but no time to change them out! Have a good trip!

What are the odds?

I and Gus Chronopoulos on our 1190 R's missed Finndian (and Kari) when we stopped at the awesome Jones Motorsports in Wawa. Russ helped us with directions for a rugged dirt ride to Dubreuville. Two days later visiting Aerostich in Duluth who pulls in but Finndian/Gord and Kari. Small cool world.

Just kidding, I have an "original" crotch rocket and still have fun on it.

Cross Post from Winnipeg Thread

Vermillion Bay Fall Ride:
Further to my previous post,
Looks like rooms are available in VBay for the last weekend of September and or the first weekend in October.
Nothing special, rates are about $45.00 to $50.00 per person based on 2 to a room. Continental breakfast included.
The town has the basics, liquor store, gas station and a restaurant..

Awesome Rob, loved it!
That said, sure you couldn't have done it with a powered kayak?!
Cheers, Brian
