How wet was it up at the north end? I'm hoping we can go from Sharbot Lake to Calabogie this coming weekend. I hate water any deep than 6 " or longer than anout 10 feet!

Where do you jump on the K&P?

The North end wasn't too bad but we hit the occasional mud patch that averaged about 30 feet long. There were a few of those but the rest was dry.

Went past Lavant to Lavant Station, this time, but you can get onto the K & P from Highway 7 at Sharbot Lake if you prefer, and go North.

Anyone here ordered from MX1Canada? Juames? Drif10?

We have two sets of tires coming from them, with "Free Shipping", but I'm not impressed with that particular option. The tires are coming via Greyhound and their tracking page shows nothing but the parcel pickup date. Nothing at all about where the parcel is or when to expect it.

Hardly what I call impressive.

Need a horn. The OEM horn on the 690 didn't survive one particularly nasty mud bath and the cheap replacement is suffering from water ingestions, anyone have some suggestions on a) a more hardy and reliable horn and b) something that is a bit louder?

Seems fairly obvious:

cheap aftermarket car horn from Canadian Tire or Princess Auto. They are often available in a low or high pitch tone, the low one sounds like an old 70's Buick and gets the job done well enough.

Shouldn't be too difficult to find a way to mount it. I've done it on several bikes.

Thank you thumpididump. Embeedee, studioe6 take note...

I was looking at those, wondering where a good place to fit it might be. I think I have to move it away from being so exposed up front. Wonder if there is space up by the mask. Hmmm. More to follow.
