Good you got out!

I was up Southwood a week or so ago and while it did have sand on it I wouldn't say it was worse than most springs. It was actually pretty decent in some spots

But yes we have to be vigilant!

I live on Muskoka 20, so I rode 20 to 6 and down to Washago to pick up some sour cream for another first this season - steak and baked potato on the bbq.

I suppose that the roads aren't terribly sandy, maybe a little worse than usual since we haven't seen much in the way of heavy rain to wash things off a bit. However there are still some monster pot holes and frost heaves lurking. Extra vigilance is definitely the order of the day.

The V handled it all with aplomb regardless! :)

On another note, just as I was pulling out of the parking spot in Washago a CB500X rolled past. I wound up following the rider north all the way to Houseys Rapids where our paths diverged. Not another Strom, but still cool to see someone else out.

I may have seen the same rider on the CB500x when I was heading up southwood a week or two ago.

This guy had some sort of soft saddle bags fitted and was wearing a matte black helmet with an orange stripe up the middle of it.

Quick shake down ride on my new-to-me V this afternoon. A bit chilly and the backroads are very sandy up here, but it sure was nice to be back on two wheels. View attachment 270831 View attachment 270831
