Great post!

Great ride report guys!

Nice seeing you in Cochrane! I know you were rushed to get on the train.

Had I known you were delayed leaving on the train - I could have gone back and offered a couple of scenic sights near Abitibi Canyon.

Sure looked like you had a good time.

The auxilliary tank for the 525EXC is from BAJA Designs as found here:
https://www.bajadesigns.com/NET/C-363/KTM+EXC

It gives you about 4.3litres extra to your normal tank. So on that 525 (mine) I had 12.5 litres with the Clarke Tank + the 4.2 litres for the Baja tank, enough for 300km more or less.

I use the fuel from the side tank first then switch over to the main tank after. The tank, once set up can be fitted in about ten minutes and taken off a little quicker. I modified the upper mount to move the tank outwards a little, away from the tyre.

Awesome trip!
I've been to almost every one of those towns. It was nice to see it done like that. I think I'd prefer to go a little later in the season, though.
Great pics!

Beware though, there is not really anything in a box car to fasten the bikes to. The rail line is not smooth as the earth up there is pretty unstable. So if you take your bike, take some lag bolts and fastening eyes and allow a little time to get them screwed in and then tie down good and then keep your fingers crossed!! It shook my EXC so hard that the 276 came out of the Touratech mounting, honest! The only time that has happened before was when smacking over successive logs on fast single track. One of the 640's ended up on it's side but no real harm done.

The Ontario Northland staff were SUPER helpfull. You could not wish for better service or staff. Dan, the yard master even came over to the hotel to make sure that we were ready and OK. Not many places you get that attention. I would definately do it again, but would make sure that there were a couple of good anchors.

The above pricing was for one way tickets to Otter Rapids only!
I also would like to thank the staff of Ontario Northlands Railway, they went way beyond the call of duty to make sure that we could get our bikes on the train and without them we couldn't of completed the trip as we had planned. A special thank-you to Sarah and Dan for all of their help!

The event will run again in 2010, your chance to get your own P-D sticker if you haven't got one already. :)
