north central ontario ride

Looks like we will have a few riders for a dual sport ride sept 20 weekend. We will be riding the wawa/ Chapleau area, probably somewhere around 1000 km total lots of options to opt out part way. If anyone in interested in 1 2 or 3 days of riding. mostly old back roads, all are welcome. About 100 miles between gas at the most.

too bad guys. I'll probably do another the same time next year too so mark your callendars.
I'll most likely be there for the Icebreaker though riding a big 950 all the way from here!!

Hey nice to hear you got the 950.....

Maybe I will ride east of Thunder Bay and meet up with you.

Will be retired and hope to get more rides in next year.

See Ya There

Tell me more about this ride.

I might be interested in being part of it.

I just read your ride report from June and was surprised that someone else has actually been to Halfway Haven.

Just gonna be some guys out for a ride having some fun, Nofate. Not much for organization. We haven't nailed down an exact route yet. Looks like we have some bikes riding down from Timmins and maybe sudbury. A chapleau start might make more sense if more riders are coming from that direction. Most likely be a 2 or 3 day ride. Would be great to meet up with you and a local guide is always good.

If Chapleau is central to the guys from Timmins, Sudbury and Wawa it might be possible to all meet up here on day one. I could come up with a couple of local riding options depending on how much time is available.

Is camping in the plan or motels? The weather can be pretty wet and cool this time of year. I might be able to host the first night at my place. We'll see what happens as your plan comes together.

I think we've decided against tenting it. Lots of places to stay.
As much as i like to tent it. travelling light is good too.
halfway haven, chicken ranch(valentine farms), nofates maybe. My place in Wawa.
We are now thinking of starting on friday (meet up thursday night) to make it a 3 day weekend. Still not sure on the starting point, depends on how it works out for the majority of the riders. Don't think there will be too many. Everyone seems to have those job things that get in the way.
Any other dual sporters up there Nofate?

Hey Gord,
I'm in for Thurs after work, Fri, Sat, and Sun. My windshield came in last week, my SPOT Ram mount today and my rear rack just passed through customs. I should have all my stuff mounted by the end of the weekend. I will do a pre-packing to see what I can carry. Here's my setup:

Looks like serious touring..... remember, to slow when you take pictures, they show up better on the ride report.

Have a good run Gord70, see you in the spring.... hey bring some of these guys with you... and we can have a MEGA ICE BREAKER around Thunder Bay.... could probably get 2 dozen riders.

Your more set up all the time GAT (GPS Adventure Touring). Don't get carried away and pack too much stuff. lol

Thanks for the good wishes Backroader. Hopefully I can talk a few into the icebreaker next year. A big group would be cool.
I'll be riding a new (to me) bike so I'll probably take it easy and take some pics . My Old mule is gonna get a little break this time. Hope she doesn't get jelous.

Tried out the new rubber yesturday on a 430km Adventue Tour. The front washed out a few times but I was twisting pretty aggressively. All should be cool for next weekend. No noticable wear!

Mounted the Turbo City rear rack Friday. It looks cool but that is as far as it goes. It is non functional at all. What a peice of cr%p.
