That's a kind offer, Karl. This Travel Registry section is one of the least visited and least posted areas, so it may get overlooked. On the other hand, it will remain on the first page of posts for a long time, so you might get some bites weeks or months down the road. Good luck.

Please don't post just to criticize the question. Either you have an answer or you don't.

Keep in touch!

TravellingStrom,

Last month I explored the eastern part of Arkansas, including Dumas through which you rode on Friday. My travels carried me to Toronto Canada which you mentioned.

Canadians drive on the right side of the road, so you will still have to cope with what feels like the wrong side of the road.

When you know the days you will be in Canada, please visit the Canadian section and introduce yourself to Heavy, V-Tom, and the other Canadian Stromtroopers. They are very cordial, and will welcome you to their rides and perhaps to their homes. Mention my name and they will buy you a beer ... or perhaps shoot you.

If you choose to cross from Detroit Michigan USA to Windsor Ontario Canada, please do not try to use the tunnel, because motorcycles are not allowed there ... I think our noisy engines might disturb the fish in the Detroit River. :rolleyes:

Anyway, the Peace Bridge from Buffalo New York to Fort Erie Ontario Canada is more pleasant than Detroit's Ambassador Bridge, and the part of Canada it leads to is more scenic and historic than the bleakness of extreme SW Ontario.

If you want a pleasant highway that runs from Kentucky to Buffalo New York, consider US 62. I have ridden much of that road, and I like it a lot. In Pennsylvania it runs along the Allegheny River, which is busy and turbulent this time of year.

If you have specific questions about roads between your present location and Canada, I may have some pointers, because I cover that ground a lot, and try to take different routes each time.

Best wishes, and welcome "up over"!

Keith
