Looks like a good time was had by all. Well maybe not Northrider
Got out for a ride last Monday. Lots of water around!









You go first













It was a great day for a ride. Unfortunately it has been raining since and the lots of roads and even the Trans Canada hiway were washed out last night.

The Niagra of the North Kakabeka Falls







Be careful on the backroads around Thunder Bay. Lots of culverts out and pieces of road are missing. Almost 6 inches of rain in the last 3 days.

Part I - NoFar Icebreaker Trip Report

Hi Everyone,

I've just finished Part I of my trip report to the 2012 NoFar gathering at Echo Bay, ON.

Hope you enjoy it. I had a great time. Wish I could have stayed longer. Thanks again Dan, Gretta, Scott, and Nancy.

Mike - Based on the following quote from Part 1 of your ride report, I am really, really looking forward to reading Parts 2 and 3 (I am making assumptions here)...
like they have selective right hemisphere cortical damage that prevents them from consciously noticing my other bikes - hemispatial sportbike neglect I believe is the neurodiagnostic term

I seldom get to read ride reports that contain arcane phraseology such as "right hemisphere cortical damage", and "hemispatial sportbike neglect". The frightening thing is that I really can relate to this...Please keep it coming...

Mike, I have enjoyed reading Part One of your ride report - who can help but experience a frisson of pleasure at the delightfully arcane turn of phrase you have employed below?


like they have selective right hemisphere cortical damage that prevents them from consciously noticing my other bikes - hemispatial sportbike neglect I believe is the neurodiagnostic term

I will keep my eyes open for Parts 2, 3 (and dare I say 4?), as I am certain there will be even more arcane wordsmithing to be enjoyed therein...

Cheers

Thanks Whyswoman! Glad you liked it! I was trying to make the trip report as entertaining and informative as possible. It serves as a nice way of documenting the trip for me too - to help me remember and re-experience the adventure (my memory isn't as keen as it used to be) later on. That said - I wish I were a more "naturally gifted" writer. That report took way more hours to complete than I care to divulge. Oh - and I think I only have enough photographs for a Part II. :) I suppose I should have taken more photographs at Dan's place, and then more of us the following day coveting hot chocolate at our rest-stops and freezing our a$$es off out in the rain...ha..ha...

Mike

As it's probably the best, and most cohesive,report I've read on riding the North Shore, why don't you cross post to ride reports in this forum?

( I just got off the plane, can you tell?)

Hey Ron - good to have you back in town! And thanks for the compliment. I just cross-posted Part I of the trip report to the Ride Reports area of the forum.

Hey Mike. I might go and hit some side roads off the Armstrong Highway tomorrow.

KLX kinda riding.

I'll also touch base with Steve sometime today. It could be a 250fest! (22 and Sunny)

No details. Get on bike. Ride somewhere. I could get into a "sightseeing" ride on some trails somewhere around here.

If I can any that aren't flooded!!!

Post times and meeting spot Ron and I might tag along with my two 250's and an extra 30

That is, if it's an open ride invite and if I can get the damn thing started...might be just me but the KLR started first time everytime


edit - just checked the forcast and there's a frost warning for the morning...might have to plug the KTM in tonight

Always an open invite Rob! I would like to see your bike as well...

How about my place about 11???

I was having the same problem with the KLX (cold starting) put one hotter plug in, and drained the carb a couple of times...worked like magic!
