    my name is rob.. i like to spend as much time as possible on my gs. although i work full time, i still manage to get away for a week or two on a bike trip in the summers. i manage around 10,0000 kms per year on ave. in addition to a lot of day trips. i live up in northern ontario, therefore the summers are short,,like 5 months of riding. i like to go to remote places, and travel roads less travelled. my skill level is limited. feel good on gravel roads but not so much on rail beds.. i truly enjoyed a trip up to James Bay ( on the quebec side), and i am planning a trip up the north shore of the St- Laurence this summer that should take us to the end of the road,,,a small place called Natashquan. i have rode diff. bikes for the last 30 yrs, but i purchased a used 1994 r1100gs, rode it for a couple of years and went on and bought a new 05 GS in 2005. and so far so good.

    Welcome!

    I'm down in Mississauga. Do let me know if you are down this way.

    Last year I was near your area. Traveled from Marathon to Sudbury on my way home from West Coast. Passed along TCH south of Eliot Lake, noticed a lot of OPP going west, but did not know why for a while. It was the shopping mall collapse.

    Have a look at my blog for details on the trip.

    Gravel? Rail beds? My RT and I will give those a pass. (Some gravel ok - hit a 43 km strip of highway construction - RT was perfectly behaved.)
