Searching for Spring in Northern Ontario by Moto Guzzi Breva 1100 (Video)

A new March Madness video of a two day 1200 kilometre road trip to the southern edge of Northern Ontario looking for signs of spring.

The forecast had been for temperatures into the teens (celcius), but I endured between zero and 5 most of the time. Plenty of snow, cold and wet, made tolerable by some fine roads and negligible traffic.

Here's the route

and here's the video (about 6 minutes)

Did I find spring? You'll have to decide for yourselves.

or was it fool hardy? Actually the roads were all good. A bit damp and sandy in spots, but no ice patches at all. As long as you dress for the cold, the riding is still good.
