Over the Memorial Day weekend I took a little ride around Lake Erie with a group from the XLForum, a Sportster group.

This is me....

This was my third year making the trip. It has been going on for eight years. The Canadian group is much bigger than the US group and are amazing hosts. Only one Canadian has made the loop though. Ed has made the last two.

Pretty straight forward... and I like the no highway aspect...

The ride across Ontario was not exactly like the map. We made a lot of turns. I was just following along. I suspect we dodged some towns that would have been along the most direct route. Only slab we took was 75 to Toledo. If we had more time in the morning I would have taken Telegraph.

Wow! Nice ride! I'd of thought it was further than that though... (NOT that it wasn't FAR enough, just thought that loop would be more miles), good to know.! If I'd ever decide to go back to Canada...
