Just throwing ideas out there.

Any takers? I think I'm working Saturday, so it has to be Sunday.
Damn, July two two, we'll be in the Sioux, or beyond. :-(
You folks have a great time. Don't forget there are others watching. :-)
Cheers!

Somebody's watching me

Are riders meeting at the Madhouse tomorrow night? What time?

Sioux Lookout out? or Soo (Sault) Ste Marie?

A couple of folk are getting together at the Mad house around 7PM is my guess.
After that, the Soo. :-)
Cheers!

Yes, and we'll be stopping in if you're around.

Edit: We may even sleep behind your garage if that's ok. :-)

Drop me a line when you're around. Should be home this weekend, then around for a couple of weeks before I head out again.

Gord that would be the perfect bike for running the Colorado stuff like Lappeman did. Some day I will ride all that great stuff on a light nimble bike.....

August 25, Dr. Cool Run

So far the response has been favourable and I thank those who are interested. This will be a great opportunity to pull the ADV community together here in the Winnipeg and surrounding area, including the Northern Ontario riders, guys and gals.
The route I am working on will be Street Bike friendly and easy for two up riders. Plan on a whole day, probabaly departing at 10:00 with a 09:00 breakfast for those who wish to meet early.

If you are coming from out of town, PM me and we can work out tent or couch space.

Sorry Mike, I guess I should have said who was sitting there with the Pifflemaster, who looked deep in thought, probably planning which line on the hiway he will take next morning.... as he has pretty well worn out the roads from coast to coast already this year.

Heading to Thunder Bay on Sunday...Dad's 84th on Monday so a quick trip into the Bay to see him.

Anyone want to join me at the Madhouse on Monday evening for a bite to eat ?

Plan on staying at the KOA Camp Ground for a couple of nites before heading back.... living large in the Kamping Kabin.

No apologies! I was just surprised to see a photo that included my mug.

Hey BackRoader, let me know how the Kabins are. My next trip to Colorado might be minus the trailer and camper with the bike in the back of the truck and staying in the Kabins.

If I'm not burnt out Monday after work, I might show up at the Madhouse. Was planning on going last night but was so burnt out I went to bed instead...getting older sucks
