Thunder Bay to Ely Mn Run

Thunder Bay to Ely run on Thursday May 14, return Friday afternoon.

So far North Rider and myself are in. Start time and location TBA...most likley from Kangas or Hoito

Overnight in Ely or near by... Motel, camping optional.

This may be the start of the Icebreaker weekend.

I had a perfect ride back...not a cloud in the sky most of the way, temperatures were just right, and I discovered that I hit reserve at 300 km when the bike is ridden hard!

Findian.... Ely is mostly slab. Some side roads that we may do, however I did not get my off ride tires... It will be next week before they arrive.

Carl is itching to ride to T.Bay and do the Icebreacker, however no-one has chimed in.

ZZRon is heading back to work....

Rogue Wanderer is unable as well.

That's all I am aware of at this time.

Janus...... I believe the Term "Geezers" has since been replaced and should be refered to as the "Ancient's" ..... which precludes fossils and so on....
