I can share the few pictures I got from my phone. It isn't much, but better than nothing.



Trying hard to get Brian's bike to start. He probably worked harder trying to kick start it, unsuccessfully, than I did all day.




Chatting for a few moments at the meet-up spot.


And off we go!


Apparently my clothes weren't optimal... I'll know better for next time. It wasn't actually so bad as I was getting wet, it was the 10 minute drive back to London that was pretty chilly.

That trail looks way more inviting than ours. The gravel is a foot deep and loose here. Maybe Junac will take one of his tanks up and down it a couple of times and tame the trail a little for us

trail

Junac and I rode on that trail a couple of years ago. It's not the actual railbed your riding on. It's a trail that runs beside the old rail line. I think at one time it use to be a service road for the phone lines that run right next to it.

Where have you been Tim? I'm up for a ride out there before the snow flys. Anyone interested in riding up to DualSportPlus Sat Nov 16 for their open house?

It works for me! ... takes me to the west end of the trail. east of Blenheim on Kent Bridge Road.

Is there a map to help me find the east end of this trail?

formal complaint

Id like to lodge a formal complaint ....

Patrol tried to run me over and then road raged at me, it was a very scary and traumatic ordeal. I may even suffer from PTSD now.
Not to mention... he hurt my feelings

I thought I was being carjacked. I know how dangerous you surly motorcyclists can be.
