Cannonball 500 - September 20th

I haven't seen anything about this on here so...

Cannonball 500 - Cannonball 500 ride - September 20, 2015 - Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Nova Scotia

500km in 7.5 hours, all intended to be in daylight. It looks like a good mix of roads, from superslab to some nice Muskoka and Haliburton curvy ones.

A friend and I are planning to start from Edge Performance in Bradford. It is said that Barrie HD is a better place to start - better doughnuts and coffee I expect.

Beware, the GPX file doesn't seem to play well with Garmin - leaving an as the bird flies set of lines between the six starting points. I've had to recreate it in another program so I can figure out where I'm going.

'04 650, and goshdarnit it's fun - matte silver (#9 in the Silver 'Strom Club)
farewell to an '81 KZ550, '83 GPz750, '83 V45 Sabre, R-Reg GT380, '84 GPz550, early '70s DT175, and a '72 Peugeot 102

Family and work conspired against me, unfortunately, and an incredibly long Friday followed by a Saturday that ran through to Sunday morning about 2:30am made the decision for me not to try seven hours of seat time. I'm going to keep an eye out for this event in the future though.
