    Nov 20 DS ride Bethany.

    Anyone up for a leisurely dualsport ride from Bethany to Raglan and back on Saturday Nov. 20th ? Mostly dirt roads and road allowances.

    Damn, just getting to Bethany is an adventure for me. I need to move further from Toronto. 

    What kind of bike do you ride?

    '05 Honda VFR800a Interceptor

    Hi Ronnie. I ride a Drz400 with 50/50 tires on it, so I won't be getting into anything technical with it. A klr would be fine where I plan on going.

    A KLR ridden by someone competent perhaps. 

    What time are you leaving Bethany?

    I was thinking 10ish. It's only me so far though, so if your coming we can head out anytime as you have a longer drove than me!

    I just looked at the weather report for Peterborough and my knees won't take that kind of cold. I'd be the stay-puft marshmallow man on a bike. 

    Thanks.

    Another time, on a warmer day then. I agree, there is no sense in putting yourself through pain just to go riding for a few hours. Takes the fun right out of it. Have a good weekend.

    myself and some friends are heading out for a ride saturday, planning on the pits, and maybe raglan. mainly slower stuff with some gravel roads...just tooling around. we are leaving tims at morningside and shepard at 9am. we are not brazen young motocrossers, just older farts having fun: assortment of bikes include drz, dr, 86 r800gspd. any would be welcome. bring extra underlayers, at least ours get sweaty fast

    I can make this without riding for two hours at 1 degree.  

    Would you mind if I tagged along?

    Ok. Since no one wants to ride with me , I will meet you guys at Tims at 8:30-9:00 Sat. morning. I will be driving there in my truck though and will unload near tims. See you in the morning.
