it was good to get out riding. Soon we will all be inside looking at the computer screen , with the snow piling up on the shed door where your bike is sitting.

I hope to get in a few more KM's before winter sets in.

Its hard to plan anything with the volatile fall weather(as Backroader would also know)

I went for it anyways, and at one point on Saturday there was white rain(sleet) as I came through the Tower Mtn route. That sure has changed.Its getting grown in, and rougher than a dogs bark. 1st gear for much of it with lots of loose square edge stones.The Boreal road is a great high speed run.

So after meeting up with Chuck on Sunday, the weather really never warmed up much through the day, but it was great to ride some of those routes I have'nt been on in years and to see Chuck again. Some nice 4th gear cruising, and the fall colors are peaking with the red maples etc.

Northrider, I almost was gonna stop when I waved to you on the highway. I wish I knew it was you's.....good to see you get in some more miles.

I got in about 1700kms on the weekend going to the HU meeting near Barrie. The weather sucked most of the time but the riding and camping was still fun. The heated jacket and homemade heated gloves were lifesavers.

didn't take many pics but here's some retro kawi's.

Nice pic's Gord...don't see too many of these. I think they were only produced for a couple of years. Apparently a W800 was also supposed to hit the market, but not sure if that transpired.

They look a lot like the old Triumph Bonnevilles. Kawasaki still makes them, but they are not available in Canada or USA.

canuckAME, glad you and Hekto got out for a ride and made the best of it. It was snowing here on Sunday! Sorry I had to bail.

Back in town just now...great weather


On that note...anyone up for a ride tomorrow or Saturday?

Does any body know of a place...

Does anybody know of a place like the ones in Sault Ste Marie, that sell inexpensive "smokes".

The Reserve across the river here sells inexpensive smokes and gas...don't know the quality of either but some people swear by them.

ZZR_Ron...

just letting you know that the Loch Erne Tower is indeed still standing. If you plan to make a try for it this fall, let me know.

Pretty sure every reserve in Ontario does. Not sure about other provinces. Even if they don't have a store someone is selling them

Worked Saturday, (missed the Manitoulin Ride group's Fall Off Road get together, check out some photos at ADV - Regionals - Canada) but that means I had today off so I rode the "Deer Trail". Hwy17 to Iron Bridge and then north on 546 following the Little White River. Back down from the top on 639/108 through Elliot Lake and home. 300 k, no traffic, no deer (thankfully) and the leaves are just about at their peak.

I know that route well. But I haven't ridden it in the Fall. Love the photos. Incredibly vibrant. Wow.
