Anyone else interested in tagging along? PM me if interested.
What time are you planning on hitting Silver Dollar? Couple of us may ride up there and ride along with him west if the weather looks decent.

If you can, send a note or a post on your eta before you leave.

GPSKevin on the TCAT...

Well it was nice to meet Kevin! He stayed in our camper last night and I joined him for about 163kms on his solo journey across Canada on the Trans Canada Trail TCAT. It was a great morning for a ride and we even saw two black bears along the way. My back was bothering me by Graham, so I showed Kevin the plane wreckage and returned home. It was looking pretty stormy west, hope he joined up with Dryden Rider 54 at the Silver Dollar alright. I got a tad wet in a 3 minute downpour about 5 minutes from home but otherwise it was a great day. Needed to wash the bugs and mud off the bike and myself anyway

Ready to continue his trip this morning


Grown in section of the TCAT


Checking out the old rail bridge


At the Flett Tunnel - pretty neat with fog!


Getting in deep


At the plane wreckage


It was great to finally get out and ride, Thanks Kevin and good luck with the rest of your trip!!

There was an impassable washout a couple k after you left him. We waited at Silver Dollar for an hour or so but he did not show. Found later that he did a bunch of back tracking and showed up about 10 minutes after we left SD. He followed in our tracks to Dryden and is now here at our house.

I was down in Espanola and Kevin from Trail Side Sports offered up a tour of Manitoulin Island. He kindly provided some of his Harley's to ride.

They definately aren't my cup of tea and provide very little adrenaline rush or inspiration but they do provide the basics of riding and it's always great to get out and about with a good friend. The other bike was a little smaller superglide? and was very easy to ride.

Gord, a parrot on your shoulder and a patch over one eye, and you'd look right at home on that thing. Kidding aside, I rented on in AZ, and loved it.
