For those of you that haven't gone yet, joining Mike for a ride is a pretty amazing resource here in the Kingston area. He knows the area intimately and puts together a really enjoyable day.

Mike - thanks for continuing to do this! Looking forward to the next time I can tag along. Might be free for part of Sunday the 15th if you're planning on going out. Besides, after the Vermont Dual Sport loop kicked my butt yesterday, I need more training for Dacre...

I'm dying to tag along for one of these stsrider rides, just can't seem to free myself up, work, family, lawnmower repairs, etc, etc...
No free Sundays now until mid July. Have a great ride guys.

yup, what he said! Well except for the Vermont and Dacre part. Always a great day with Mike picking the trails....

I was out on Sunday for a solo day. My intention was to ride up to Calabogie by way of the triple tower hydro line. But due to my lazy ass late start I only made it the first hydro line off of Arcol Rd. It has a great rest spot by the lake and the hydro line was dry and deserted. A great trail with lots of technical bits and some space to rip...from there I scooted along #7 to Kellar Rd which turns conveniently into Hayes Rd. Kellar had a nice lil water crossing that was pretty long but not too deep. Hayes Rd was pretty overgrown with branches hanging quite low and the 'water crossing' is pretty much non-existent now. Came home by Cranberry Lk Rd to Tamworth and slabbed it the rest of the way.

We're pretty lucky here with what we have to choose from. And definitely Mike certainly knows the trails as well as anyone I've ridden with....

I'm in on Sunday!

Ok I checked google maps and it's actually Granite lk.

Sounds good - I'll touch base via this thread later in the week if I can make it. Not sure if we have father's day plans or not. Might be better to do a ride with the boy in the Ural instead!

Heck, I should just follow you on the Ural, but I've not yet adventured truly off-road on that beast yet. Though it should be capable!

If I can make it through on my gsa, then the Ural should.

I am thinking of running the bear pond trail this weekend so I would advise against large bmws or urals as this is one of the more technical trails.

I was mostly kidding! Too much of a chicken to take the Ural beyond gravel roads just yet.

If you're going to run something really technical though, I'd love to come to watch Jim muscle the GSA through!

I don't muscle it through anything.

I just aim it, and twist the throttle. The bike does the rest, I'm just along for the ride.

That GSA fits him more like a 250 fits me.
