    Today's update: 256 miles from Marathon, Ont, Ca to Sault Ste. Marie. Did I miss out on when Canada is supposed to have summer?
    38 degrees when we started out at 0900 & it never got above the mid 40s. Rained to boot. We were layered up, but come on!
    October in August? WTF? EH?

    Looking forward to more pics when you get back! Those temps would not be comfy for me unless I had heated gear.

    Nice tat. The weather has been cool but still a nice trip on the north shore of Superior. Did you check out Ouimet Canyon, east of Thunder Bay?

    My sister did the trip at the start of September, about 5 years back, on her BMW. She had all the heated gear for that trip;lol Sadly, that BMW is gone as she was t-boned by a driver cutting across three lanes of traffic to a shopping center (Sis had the right of way). While our Cheri is tough, she had a "sh*t load of broken ribs" (Doc's term), damage to her knee and hip - instant panic for the family. Design on the BMW saved her legs. Ribs and hip healed, surgery on one knee and she ran a marathon with her daughter the following summer:cool: Not bad for a 54 year old;) And, yeah, she got a new BMW...

    I have a hard enough time on that trip in the car - can't image on a bike:)

    You folks get October in August. We were cold & wet for a LOT of our riding thru your area. Missed the Canyon, but I'll tell ya, there is some beautiful country up that way. Didn't realize how many lakes are there...

    North of Minnesota - the Land of 10,000 lakes - what do you expect;lol Area was covered by glaciers so created lots of pockets on the surface with Canadian Shield below. Love the area with all it's rocks, trees, lakes and critters - would never been able to survive the prairies:)

    The weather this summer has been bad. We normally have warmer temps but the jet stream is way off and the Yukon, Nunavut getting all our nice, warm 80F weather while bringing the cooler artic air down.:mad: Hopefully that trend doesn't hold for the winter...

    Minnesota DOES have a lot of lakes. That was my first excursion thru that area as well, but if they keep putting up wind turbines, they may hafta change the name to the land of 10,000 windmills...
