The gangs all here...

I have a garage full of bikes, and we're headed out in to the rain and fog...
about the only adventure so far has been the consumption of vast amounts of beer....

Day One

The day finally arrived, cold and wet of course.

The Riders:

HektoGlider, on his trusty 650 Honda,

Bill, on a KLX250S

Steve, on a Suzi DR650,

HumVee, on board his KLR650,

TrialsNTribulations, (hitherto known as TnT) on his spanking new KTM 950 ADV,

And me, on my KLR650.



The plan was to meet HektoGlider and Steve at a motocross track in Atikokan, and leave as a group from there.

So the four of us met at my place, and did an uneventful 200 km ride to there....the bikes are ready to go here...

Bill decided to get the...ummm...drop on us, and managed to drop the KLX before he even left the driveway.

Despite the strong ADV spirit, rampant among us, no one managed to get a picture...

Just another shot...

At least it stopped raining, and was becoming a tolerable spring day.
Here's another picture, on the way to the rendezvous point.

TAKE IT AWAY HEKTO!!

Humvee's home and showered. TnT was gonna stay in town tonight, strong+cold north wind the last 30 minutes coming into town.

Now, where did my family go...I have the house to myself!

Still need to go through pics too. Awesome job fella's, those are the kinds of memories to help you through another cold winter!

Would you ride over this bridge?

Glad to here you made'r back OK. After a cold Canadian winter a ride like this helps get the fever cured a little bit.

Ice Breaker 2007

After a bit of discussion between ZZr and myself we agreed that a good tour of the neighborhood was in order.Burn a few tanks of gas and go look at the sights and ride some of the backroads.Most riders who come through this area ride the main slab and miss a lot of the best riding.We had 2 out of Province riders, and four local riders that were able to route us through some of the best roads/trails but we did not "see it all" on this trip. We began the ride by meeting up at the MX racing track,everyone was right on time.The first section was the Iron Mine and the classic dualsport routes with scenic lookouts and plenty of red dirt.

Trail around the open pit

The weather on day one was sketchy.It wanted to rain but felt too cold for it to rain.A week ago we had a warm spell, and a cold front had moved in.

Of course, Hekto decided not to ride over the bridge....why do that when you can get your feet wet!!
