Pig Pen is going... I'm going even if it snows. Putting in my vacation in the morning... Pig is bringing another 3 guys... hopefully I'm bringin Caveman & NastyNate.

Leaving July 12th in the morning... kickstands up by 9am

Take Route 2 out

Come back Sat July 14th, bringing the 401 back to state side.

Staying at the kingsmen campground setup. Will probably also have a chase truck/trailer in case anything stupid happens. This truck will probably also carry a grill for some good cooking and be available to help carry gear.

Set it up boys...

04-11-2012, 12:19 AM
I put in for the vacation time well see if it gets approved since I'm going to be gone the whole week before in florida. I think this would be a great time I just need some help hauling the gear if were camping unless im on another bike then.

Lance. I'm not sure where we will meet. I may try and suggest meeting at my place. It's not too far out of Detroit. Then if that is the case anybody that can't haul shit can drop off tee gear at my place.

Also we will need to figure out tents. I know I have a small tent for one maybe 2 guys. Cave has a 3 man which will hold 2. And he has a huge family tent.

04-11-2012, 12:31 AM
I do have an 8 man tent and a 3 man fits two comfortably. I will also be putting in for the vaca that weekend and I know the wife will NOT be coming to that one. Hehehe. So, if need be, we can have Lance stop by and drop gear off at Gas' place for the meet up and then you just meet up with us early the 12 and we will load it up into the chase vehicle or on the back of our scoots if not too much gear.

11 days out...

Head Count in our group.
1. Me
2. Pig Pen (john)
3. Chef Doug G

Cave? Dave? Lance?

Also, I'm trying to talk to PigPen about who else is coming with him "off board".

Sportster Paul meeting us there? If so, make sure we exchange numbers...

Gas Man
07-01-2012, 01:35 PM
Spoke to Pig Pen..

he said there will be plenty of chilling and some day riding...

Chef is on the fence

Pig & I are debating the truck/trailer vs trying to talk Cave into bringing his pull behind bike trailer. I'm going to talk to Cave about what we can get in his trailer. Pig would like to bring a pop up tent for camp, some lawn chairs, and a big cooler. Couple that with hauling some other guys gear and tents... we'll have to see if Cave's bike trailer can handle it. Maybe I can get my 10x12 pop up on top of the trailer.

07-01-2012, 04:32 PM
I'm in for sure.

1. Me (Chris)
2. Cave (Sean)
3. Rugby (Lance)
4. Pig Pen (John)
5. Cutter (Jim)

I'm brining a tent for me/sean/lance.
John is bringing his own 1 man and believes Jim is as well.

Meeting at the Citgo on Gibralter @ I-75
Thursday 9am

your clothing and bathroom stuff, consider non-riding shoes & clothes
PASSPORT OR ENHANCED DRIVING LICENSE as well as your drivers license with cycle endorsement
HELMET for canada laws.
$$$$ remember you may need cash for your purchases, don't rely souly on your credit/debit card.
bag chair
sleeping bag/ground pad/pillow
rain gear

John will be driving a truck with bike trailer (his bike on trailer). So if your bike can't haul your gear, you can make arrangements to drop your stuff off at my house before Thursday or just get it to the gas station and we can put it in the truck. We can also bring beer, it is cheaper here, so we can try to get some in the truck before we leave.


May also want to call your cell service and see if your phone will work and make sure you know what it will cost!! I have sprint and purchased 55mb of data for $30, and purchased buy down talk mins, for $0.11 a day I pay $0.20 a min instead of $0.59 a min. I have unlimited texts. Consider this so you don't rack up a big bill.

You can't bring guns to canada so this will be a weapon free trip (unfortunately).

07-10-2012, 12:12 AM
What route are we taking out.

Gas Man
07-10-2012, 12:45 AM
route 3 to talbot st, along the lake.

Then route 3 to the 401 coming home.

The funny part is the whole highway home way shaves less than an hour off the trip. goes from 4.25 hrs to 3.75 hrs....

I have it plotted in my Garmin and John also knows how to get there and will have a thing called a "paper map" in the truck.

Gas Man
07-10-2012, 12:50 AM
Also Nasty Nate (BIL) might be going... depends on his bike situation (long story).

I think that would make our 6th man.

Well on the way I took some action shots of the boys...


rugby & Cutter

rugby rollin on his sick new Road Glide


If Canada ever flies off the face of this earth... we now know why... windmills are everywhere!!!

Otherwise, taking Route 3/Talbout out to PD, we had lots of country road riding and a nice breeze off Lake Erie

At one point Cave & I switched bikes so he could try out my new windshield at speed.... so he took a pic of me on his bike.

Yes we arrived!!

We set up camp

PigPen unloaded his bike off this unique trailer. Talk about a NICE rig.

Iron Rider thanks me for setting up HIS tent.

We went up into town Thursday evening for a great fish dinner and start cruising the drink tents and bars. The eye candy was insane and we knew it from AS SOON AS we got into town. There's something in the water up here!! It grows HOT women and douche dudes!!!

Some pics from both days below...

Mullet alert!!

I didn't get pics of all the hotness, mostly friday in the middle of the day and when I could. It wasn't all good... click here and be warned (http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Riding/PD13%202012/girls%20and%20douches/PD132012138.jpg).

To see more of the girls & douches see the slideshow (http://s99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Riding/PD13%202012/girls%20and%20douches/?albumview=slideshow) (P/W: TWMPD13)

We finished Thursday Night at about 430am friday. But woke up at 715am because the sun was baking us in our tents!!!

More pics coming...

Friday morning we were running slow as said, so when we went to roll into town at almost 10am… we found this 30 min wait..

Downtown was PACKED!! Worst Pig Pen said he has ever seen! So we looped back around and back to camp. Found this interesting road..

Here’s some shots of the backstreets of town…

Also, while there, there was some biker fun going on inside the campground...
