The thrill perseveres.
Welcome, chefbiker. My Wee-Strom has 75500 miles on it, and I still find the bike thrilling and delightful. I have explored a lot of Ontario with it, including Owen Sound and Manitoulin Island. It may be news to you that M.S. Chi-Cheemaun Ferry is very cordial to motorcycles, so you'll have an easy ride to the North Shore, when you want to go that way.
Last time I went south on the Mackinac Bridge, the right lane was easier to
ride than the left lane, because of different corrugations on the steel spans.
Of course the Ontario Stromtroopers are more familiar with your roads than I can be. I find them to be a cordial lot, and worth considerable effort to join, from time to time. Please remember that Ontario roads, in early spring, retain a lot of the sand that was spread to improve traction in the winter. Almost mid-way through spring, there may be a "jail-break" ride, perhaps starting at Barrie.
Maybe I will attend this ride, for a fourth time. Maybe you will too.
If we are both there, I will give you a fresh orange.
