No good deals in soo Canada. I stay on the U.S. side when in the Soo. Holiday Inn express is right by the bridge. New and clean.

Well I managed to load up the 2011 CBR150R tonight in preparation for the annual CBR125R gathering taking place near Bancroft, ON (north of Belleville). Plan to stop at Rabbit Blanket Lake Provincial Park the first night, then backtrack and ride Hwy 101 toward Timmins and eventually end up at Finlayson Point Provincial Park (near Temagami) the second night. Then down to the meeting site near Bancroft on Friday. On the return - hope to camp at Windy Lake Provincial Park (near my hometown of Onaping, ON) along Hwy 144 and help out Ivanhoe Lake Provincial Park (near Foleyet, ON) by staying there overnight before the long return back to TBay.

Cleaned and lubed the chain, and changed the oil. Should be good to go for tomorrow.

Here's what the bike looks like with all the gear loaded up including the Hepco & Becker rear rack and Givi E55 Maxia top case. I'm taking the Ortlieb saddles on this trip too.
Just purchased some Sidi Canyon boots from Excalibur. These SHOULD actually be waterproof. Looking forward to the trip. Will write-up another trip report after I return.

Good luck on your Trip Mike! Looks like you have the setup figured out nicely! Aren't you headed to BC on the bike also this summer?

If you don't need to be in town, check out the Voyageurs' Lodge at Batchawana Bay.

http://www.voyageurslodge.com/

Small, old school, but clean, and the restaurant is OK too. Sense of humour too ...

Would love to be heading to BC on the 150 - but it won't happen this year. I was supposed to be riding to California on it this summer though. But a friend wants to tag along on his Guzzi V7 Classic and won't be able to make it until next summer. So California next summer it is....on 149cc's.

I'd offer up a place to stay in Sudbury but I'm going to be down that way myself this weekend (Hidden Valley Resort near Huntsville) for the Canadian FJR rally.

I'll be in touch with you about conking on your couch or something on my return trip from Alaska July 17 or 18th if the offer is still open.

Have a great run Mike, watch the speeding !!!!!

On another note! Any of you Thunder Bay riders checked out the Minnesota Shindig... I see there is a thread on the regional forums. July 11 to 14th in Finland MN. (camping and a bar on site...what else is required?)

Actually, now that I think about it the harsh light of day, you more than welcome to conk here on Sunday night/Monday night. I'm afraid I won't be much company as I have to get the last minute stuff done on my bike before I cut out on Friday AM.

Thanks. Just trying to set up some options for when we pull through.

Gord - I rode past your shop at around 6:30PM - so I assumed that you were closed. I'll have to get you next time. I'm in Chapleau right now using the Wifi at Subway. Hope to make it to Temagami this evening.
