Haha, I saw you at the old gas station right by fairbanks turn in yesterday. Unfortunately I was in my cage headed to my parents house. I thought about trying old chicago mine road yesterday but I'm not used to my bike enough to try it on snow... I was out in that area earlier in the day.

Im heading down to Port Lorring area next week. Any chance the lakes will be open?
Is the ice breaking up?

I'm in for a ride today, what about a meet and greet at the A&W on Long Lake road say ,,,12:00? Depending on who's there we could decide where to go?

Cheers

Must have been you guys I saw on Hwy 6 this afternoon? Pair of Katooms northbound? I was stopped at the silver bridge boat launch shooting the breeze with my buddy on his HD...I was aboard my red DR750.
I've managed to get out a few times but not too far yet. Paved back roads are loaded with sand in our area and the gravel roads have some very nasty frost heaves along with washed out banks and slimy sections. Looks like a stretch of cool, wet weather coming up for us now.
Hope it changes to "normal" temps soon.

Relic

PS- shameful plug for my DR650 sale...details on the Cdn Flea Market pages if you know of anyone looking for a good dual sport.

Great ride Claude, next time let's put a Posse together? Could you post the the pictures I sent you, I'm technically challenged!

Cheers

I remember seeing two bikes off to the right, one of them was white and red would that be you? Certainly reminded me of the 1980's color schemes!

Cheers
