beautiful, once I started I had to read all three reports, very nice, travelling on a small bike is very interesting, I have a couple of kawasaki's here, a KLR and a Versys but in my winter home have a yamaha ybr 125 and I travel with it



I have been thinking I could live with a cbr 250 here, but it would be hard to give up the comfort of the KLR, I like your cot idea, it took a week to get the kinks out of my last camping trip

Reading your ride report, and Cannonshots, back to back.

Thanks for all the positive comments. I had tons of fun doing this. I am planning on traveling the north shore again in early July on my CBR125R (150cc engine) out towards Chapleau and beyond. I'm hoping to camp at Neys, The Shoals, Wakami Lake, White Lake, and perhaps Pukaskwa along the way. That should fill at least part of my adventure quotient for the summer.

It would be a long 1000km ride but it would be fun to have your CBR150R along for the fuel economy challenge with Craig Vetter and his band of streamliners at the Vintage Days at Mid Ohio on Jully 20th. I hope to have a tail on my CBR250R by then and camp out for the events.

Hey Mashrider - good on ya!! You might have to dig a little deeper with the KLX 250 compared to your other rides - but that is the kind of stuff that forges your bond with the bike! Hope to read your report afterwards. Take lots of photos!! :)

Sendler - it looks like the Ninja 250R is a popular bike to mod for fuel economy with the Vetter Challenge. I suspect that if you could streamline your CBR250R in a similar manner - you should be able to easily best the Ninjas. I love the Ninjas, they are fun to rev. However, it seems that the CBR250R is netting on average about 20% better fuel economy in online magazine tests when both bikes have been ridden hard.

Here are some extra photos taken during the trip.

Here is a zoomed in photo near Ney's Provincial Park.



Here is another photo of my campsite at the Agawa Bay campsite section of Lake Superior Provincial Park.



Here is the campsite from a different perspective.



And here is a photo along the beach looking east toward Montreal River Harbour.



A fissure in the rock near the pictographs. If you look closely you can see Lake Superior at the far end.



Here's a couple of explanations for the rock fissure seen above.



This is what the shoreline looks like next to the pictograph viewing area.



And a description of the artwork on the cliff face.



And here is another photo of my bike - just before the incident where it wouldn't start and I became discombobulated - and subsequently lost my eye-glasses. Certainly not my fondest memory of the trip. You can see Raymond who walked with me out to the pictographs in the background as well.

Hey rdouthit,

It is from Cee Baileys. It's not the biggest screen, but it reduces buffetiing and looks good on the bike. Here is the link:
