Perhaps North Rider and Finndian will arrive riding their DR BIGs, so we can stage the inaugural meeting of the northern Ontario DR BIG owners club. If so, I'll take the 800, otherwise I'll be on the medium sized DR.

Greg/Ron, you guys crack me up! Sending messages at 4 and 5 in the blessed AM! Are you both still up at that time from the night before? Or just getting up early like farmers? I need someone to put out the plans/time of this mighty adventure ride! If I can't go, I at least need to be with you guys in spirit (emotionaly and alcoholly). Lets see an itinerary or a dedeicated post! Sounds like a fantastic time!

According to the.... Time / Distance / Calculation... X.... the mass of the ass stretched over the seat of a KLR, divided by the number of shotsin the evening (@ZZR_Rons ) required to acheive a timely Friday arrival at Lonley Lake (near Echo Bay) = 18 hours and 34 minutes from Winnipeg. (1418 KMs)

Assuming stops are limited to and including , and acceptable speeds are maintained, a good trip should be had by all.

I tried to do a DR Big calculation, but the numbers are not adding up, given this trip has not been done according to Wikipedia (we all know how accurate they are)....so give it go a boys
