Gary, I have lived in London, and know that Ontario offers countless fine rides. If you are headed north, consider taking the ferry from Tobermory to South Baymouth on Manitoulin Island. My Wee-Strom and I have been on about a dozen ferries in USA and Canada, and the experience is always about as pleasant as one can expect. Bikes are generally loaded first, so riders have a chance to tie down bikes. Hence bikes are first off when the ferry docks.
The ferry I mentioned is called MS Chi-Cheemaun. I think there is a nice restaurant near the dock, such that one can park the bike in the lane reserved for motorcycles, enjoy a decent meal, ride onto the ship, and enjoy the brief cruise to the world's biggest fresh-water island.
If you ride with V-Tom, be prepared to ride hard. I can keep his taillight in sight until it goes around a curve; after that I need to know the road, because I am alone until I find him at a gas station or restaurant.
I am trying to work up the gumption to join the annual Spring Ride at Barrie.
Keep reading this section of the forum, and news of it will shortly appear.
