Gadgetman posted a topic in Main ClubhouseWe used to do Kirkland-Timmins-Folyet-Chapleau-Dubereville-Caramat-Longlac-Hearst-Cochrane-KL back in the 2000's. Now that we don't drive Two strokes since 2012 (yes I'm still bitter - two pistons in 3 years), and we can again loop around, we will re-trace part of our old ride. If anyone has already ridden into Folyet and Chapleau this season and has any input, please share your thoughts on the first season of the trail being open again. I'm good for fuel and hotel stops. (I guess Folyet is still only the General Store for a sandwich and gas pumps.) Driving Saturday- SLed trip starts Sunday. IF you see me, say hello - Can't miss me - I'm the white and black Real-Tree guy with 4 other Yamaha's. Cheers Gadgetman...
