A place where traffic moves aside to let you pass, the vibrant colors of fall leaves fill your field of vision, roads are open and inviting… my Northern adventure was full of good times. The best parts? Doing it all on the BMW f650GS, and being in great company. Morning arrived and I pulled myself out of the comfy hotel bed- 9am local time for Toronto, and a painful 6am home time.It didn’t matter- I was chomping at the bit to rail the 2012 BMW f650GS on the Ontario, Canada roads I’d… Continue Reading »

The last of my Canada adventure riding the Explorers’ Edge… Top to bottom, left to right. We got rained out pretty hard at the end of the trip, torrential downpour on the freeway.

Day 2 of the Canada adventure… Huntsville to Parry Sound via Highway 520 and Bunny Trail. Stopped at the Midlothian Castle and Screaming heads… crazy art and house built by some guy in the middle of nowhere. Having lunch now.
Super short iphone capture of the footage Adam Wood’s camera yesterday- he was shooting video some of today for this trip.

A few photos from my Canada trip so far (left to right, top to bottom)- arrived last night and met up with Rod (posted to FB I’d be in Toronto and this chap joined me) for a drink. Went to the Deeley Canada HD manufacturer warehouse to pick some stuff up for the boys who were riding Harleys. Drove out to Gravenhurst and met up with the bikes, met my BMW f650GS… more than stoked to be riding it. Rode HWY 141 and ended in Huntsville.
