Attendance is looking good! Just went to Players List; and, if you count Admin Staff, it's up to 42 now. Just glad FJRGuy has promised Seth and I polar bear sightings!

ROUTE PLANNING - Time to start looking at the maps. I like the look of the "Golden Triangle". It appears that rt.327 from Mount Tremblant will take you south to Lachute. Then head north on rt. 329. From there would you just cut back on the 117 or can you head a little farther north and then cut accross? Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Scott
There are many many hours of great riding concentrated in that area but as Chris mentioned on the CFR site, it depends on how kind mother nature was on road surfaces over the winter. I was going to wait for the snow to clear, then pre-ride all my favorite routes in the area and post them so you can load-up your GPS.... my kind of homework smile.gif

Understanding that there will be all sorts of tastes involved, I'll break them into 3 styles. There's lots of riding in each category

Scenic cruising (winding roads & beautiful scenery)
Sportier riding (twisties, watching the next apex and dodging R1s)
My personal favorites - backroad routes (requires all your attention / all the time - never a straight line or dull moment) I took Chris & Pierre on one such road and I think they liked it. Put it this way - Pierre got carsick smile.gif

"you can load-up your GPS" you are making some assumptions here rolleyes.gif


1. Scenic cruising (winding roads & beautiful scenery)
2. Sportier riding (twisties, watching the next apex and dodging R1s)
3. My personal favorites - backroad routes (requires all your attention / all the time - never a straight line or dull moment)

I'll pick choice #1 for the way to and from the rally. Option #2 will be nice for Tuesday. And I'll take choice #3 for Wednesday.



Perfect, my planning is done. When do I leave? yahoo.gif

You'll want to pay attention to LeSkid's recommendations. We had a blast on the ride between Mont Tremblant to Mauricie - even the wrong turn up to Ste. Zenon was great (crappy pavement, but great scenery).

I believe it was 347 kicked some major butt ass, even though we got held up by some slow movers. Buddy with the sidemount in front of me kept running wide in left handers so he wouldn't drag his sidemount. LeSkid managed to pass them before the road got 'interesting' leaving Mike, Doug and I behind.


Spot track from Day 2 and 3. Notice the huge jump between signals from Mauricie (48) to Hawksbury(50)? It was raining so damn hard the Spot couldn't talk to the sat's!


Here's the entire GPS track for the whole trip.


I'll make the GPS track available if theirs interest, but you have to promise not to laugh at the number of laps I did around Trois Riviere trying to find the ramp for rte 40!
is it June yet?

Hey, now that's not fair. That's one of my favorite stretches, there isn't a driveway or intersection for the next 20kms at that point and I was pulled over 15kms ahead at my usual turn-around spot, having a smoke and waiting for the old folks to eventually catch-up.

Wait. You're younger than me tongue.gif

Besides, his FJR is the correct color.

I didn't say you did anything wrong, I just said you managed to get around them and we didn't. No harm, no foul. Besides we were having fun giggling at the pirates trying to stay in their lane while they tried to keep up with the puma driving the Mustang. I think she was chasing the young stuff on the 03 FJR that blazed past her. Why, she even took her teeth out!

You young punks need to learn when to slow down.

PS. I'm older 'n you I'm sure. Flippin' 50 this year.

I believe he is still around but because were he has dial up , it's a royal pain for him to load up these websites. He is not one to attend rallies but if you go to his playground I think he would gladly show you around again! yahoo.gif

That is not very nice, you could hurt someone's feelings. Go back to sleep, someone will wake you up before the rally.

I see a quick pop up to Burlington and Montreal and then.........boom, parking lot bbq with the gang!
As for the hibernation, captain, bike has been out during the winter and again this Saturday. No, didn't get the studded snows.

Speaking of correct color, is "dirt" still the primary on Gypsy's?

And yes, I'm still pulling for the Granite Gray.
