Sorry JimToe - I couldn't ignore the call of the wild and headed out today.

Not much of a story to tell, but I had a great time and saw some neat stuff.

Ride report...

700 kms in 11 hrs.

left Tims in Selcrack mb at 7:30 am
Rode down 44 to 12 took a one hour detour for breakfast at Robins Drive In at the corner of hwys 12 & 317 then took 317 to 11 off 11 to Seven Sisters and the Whiteshell.
Detour to Falcon Lake for a coffee.
off to Ontario on hwy 1.
some construction on the Ontario side, ending before Clearwater bay.
bypass Kenora...
Stopped at Rushing River Store for a chocolate bar...
Saw a big assed black bear on the hwy...
Lunch at Totem Lodge...
Visited the Gift shoppes at Souix Narrows.
one stop at Rushing River park, then off to Westhawk Lake.
Getting Gas at Westhawk, bumped into a nice kid on a Ducati sr2, rode with him through the park...Back in MB (near whitemouth?) 44 is torn up and all gravel, the kid decided to turn off towards hwy 1, I kept on 44.
All you dualsport riders would've been proud to see how well a fz1 handles in the dirt and gravel....
turns back to asphalt before hwy 11 intersection (so street rider going to Westhawk..be advised detour off 44 to 11 and take the Seven Sisters route).
and home by 6:30.

I have whatever Garmin has for that area, and just a small cross-country ski trail map I downloaded somewhere.


Looks like both garmins maps topo canada and regular canada show roads going to Whitemouth lake. The ski trail map I have wouldn't show anything like that.

Dumdog...sorry I missed you. I was down in the narrows about 1:00 yesterday afternoon for a coffee. It's less than an hour from home. Wish I'd read your post Friday night! Lunch at Totem would have worked.
Next time....

Greg - I talked to a sunburnt fellow at work today. He was at Whitemouth all weekend.

Friday folks were catching their limit in a couple hours (walleye). Sunday they were skunked. Sounds like a nice little lake. He was saying you can really only fish from shore by the free boat launch. Do you know of any other places?

Taking the little Bandit into Formula Zuke for the first service Wed at 11:00. Finally, the rain has stopped. Really hard to get the first 1000 kms on the wee critter. Now, it's just annuals and oil changes.
Dumdog, and/or Greg....wanna do lunch?
