I would like to ride the rally in Minneapolis St. Paul MN from Oakville (west of Toronto) Ontario Canada, but would prefer to ride with A.N. Other - safer!
Distance via Sault St. Marie = 1583km Toronto>Barry>Parry Sound>Sudbury via 400 & 69 >Blind River>Sault. St. Marie via 17 >Manistique>Escanaba>Oconto>Shawano.st. Paul via 2, 35, 41, 22, 29, 94.
This is just Google mapping, no idea if there are better rides (for F800GS).
I would plan to leave COD Tuesday 22 July for at min. a 2 day ride, probably 2 1/2, return Sunday COD 27 July, home by Monday night 28th.
