    With the nice weather today I couldn't help myself, I had to get some exercise.

    I headed up the east side of Simcoe trying to stick to dirt but at least stuck to the roads with the most turns. The route included Wiley/Alvar roads, Back River Road, Housey's Rapids Rd. I saw a few big bikes but not many bikes in general. I carried enough fuel for the trip and packed a lunch to avoid any stops. I think I'll find a way to extend the route for my next outing, it would be nice if crown land camping was not shut down since there are plenty of areas with potential just north of where I turned around.

    I've done a few carb mods to my DR so the increased response was nice in the twisties, however it cut about 30km from my fuel range. (Probably from enjoying too much throttle)

    Here's a picture from the Kirkfield lift lock. 20210424_124755.jpg
