New Canadian Adv Rider

Post by Different Spokes TV » Mon Apr 15, 2019 4:46 pm

Hey all,
After a five year hiatus I've jumped back into motorcycling with both feet. Bought a 2014 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX. Super excited about the upcoming season and the fun I'm going to have riding this thing in Northern Ontario, Canada. I've already made some videos of my first rides:







Hope to get a lot from this forum, especially about riding big bikes off road. I don't have a lot of experience in that area.

Welcome to the forum. When you say Northern Ontario, how north do you mean? I did the northern road between North Bay and Nipigon, back in 1991, just so that I could try the 'road less travelled'. Loved it - great experience. But perhaps you are up in Fort Severn or wherever - in which case how on earth do you get a great big Guzzi up there??

I actually mean the Madawaska Valley which is technically Central Ontario, but it's Northern if you live in Toronto. I have a cottage very near Algonquin Park and am looking forward to exploring all the little gravel roads in the area. There are so many that it should keep me busy for a couple of summers at least.

How fantastic. Beautiful Algonquin. I know all the tourists hurry off to Banff and Jasper over in the Rockies, but Algonquin is stunning too.
