The GTA crew got back and had a great time. 1431 miles (2300 km) for me.

Dan & Gretta - Thanks for a great time. You are very generous hosts.

Gord - Thanks for the Wawa loop. Had fun trying to keep up with you. Hope to see you next week.

Northrider - Get well soon.

Great to meet out Northern brothers and sisters

Many thanks

I made it home to Winnipeg at 7:30 this evening - 12 hours after leaving Nipigon.

I want to give a big shout-out to Dan, Gretta, Scott, Nancy, Boo, and Akropovic for a most wonderful time this past several days...You folks are amazing... I will be posting my pics on my Picasa pages tomorrow, but will probably not get a chance to do a ride report before I head up north on Wednesday morning...The pics will have to tell the story...I will post a link on this forum once they are up...

I also want to thank Old Fart at Play and Nanabijou for keeping me company on the road to Nipigon... Although this is my 4th season of riding, I am still pretty much a rookie, and I was glad to have your support when the rain began to fall...sorry I couldn't continue on to TBay - but hypothermia was definitely threatening, and I knew I would make it home today no matter where I slept last night...

Funny - today's riding also ended in rain...After a total ride of 3029 kms over the past week, I am soooooooooooo glad to be home...

Nofar was prettyfar

Thanks to our Northern brothers and sisters for such a memorable weekend.

I can't remember a May 24 with such great weather.

Feliz, I am real glad to see you up and around. You deserve every one of the awards! You and that big Kaboom are pretty tough.

Keep your tires sharp and your bikes dirty

I too would like to say thank you for an excellent weekend. The food was fantastic as were all the new people I met. I look forward to next year and hope that many of the same can make it.

Glad to see the award for our hard hitting rider! I hope he is still riding next year (wife willing).

Cheers!

On a more personal note, the mighty RT left me stranded and on foot for 5 hours today in Dryden.
Met some kind folks in Dryden (Roger Nordlund and his daughter who set me up to use Roger's garage.
I was well suppled with coffee, tools and good conversation while the issue was found and fixed.
Problem was eventually tracked down to a loose alternator belt, and I was home by 5:15 today.
Cheers!

Was around all day and could have driven you somewhere, or provided garage space, but you were in good hands with Roger. He has a nice shop and has owned a few BMWs. In fact he was a BMW dealer here many moons ago..
