Don't count on it, I leave in 13 days for a two week trip on the bike. I have a friend who is a "pharmacist"

Good luck, and I mean it... Plans can be hard to change, but pharmaceuticals are no substitute for healing, and can make things worse. But I hope it works out for you.

You've obviously never been to my "pharmacist"...he is a wizard

On a serious note though I'm sitting at the hospital waiting to get checked out.

Still alive and kicking

Seems like its riding season and the rally is a long ways away. Still a go, route is almost finalized. I'll ensure the thread gets brought back to life when ts cold and snowy and making plans for 2012 is more realistic.

Bunch if us have done rides up above mont laurier since 90. Stock tanks on most (even an 883 with trials tires, and a Fazer 750). Fuel can be had at the pourvoiries and zecs, along with food.

Our 3 day rides started and ended at Ste-Anne-Du-Lac. First night Clova, second at Fer a Cheval, then back. As technical as you want. Did a comparo for the magazine with a stock SE and an HP2 one time.

I'll see if I still have some tracks, if so I'll post them.

Anybody have any guesses as to when the Rally Connex Paris 2 Dacre will be? Last time it was end of June so might conflict with this ride. I suspect I am not the only one interested in doing both.

I'll ensure the two events dont conflict with each other

Last year the Roaming Rally conflicted with another local dual sport event which was unfortunate as a few local lads couldnt attend. Once Rally Connex confirms their dates we'll set this one in stone (suspect around December).

I dont foresee demand exceeding spots available.

So what bike did you end up choosing Rudy?
