Hi Kawboy, good to here from u.
it would be very dif to guess when it will be comming through, Aug. ???
add your name to the KZR Relay,Google Map that is in my signature below. if u have trouble just holler.
u r between TeK9iNe,jonny(niagara?) and drooz.
i think it should work like this.

please pm the riders nearest to u on the google map, and coordinate how u would like to participate with each other. if u have friends that dont have vintage bikes,they r welcome to join u. the consensus is that the flag should be carried by a vintage bike though.
after sorting out who rides when, please post it or let me know, and i will update the list in sequence, so everyone can get an idea of how it ill go. dont be worried about changing the rout latter. this is an ongoing process so anyone can join in at any time and change thing up. thats how i see it anyways, but if anyone had a dif perspective im all ears.
Mark

I'm not sure what's happening once we get this far. As far as I know there is a gap between between you and I. Then it needs to go south again. So not sure what's happening there. Also, like you said, the weather could turn and make things difficult.

Tony, let's be honest here......anything after the end of September/mid-October is a "non-starter" because of the dodgy weather, IMO.....at least on the Prairies and the interior of BC. Any time later than that is totally out of the question, IMO.....excepting "instant and severe global warming". :laugh:
I, for one, am NOT big on riding in temps any lower than about +15*C for any kind of distances. Others may find that kind of riding "exhilarating", though. ;)
If we are going to do this thing in ONE western Canadian riding season AND get the banner back over the border to someone in Washington state then the handover at the border realistically can't take place much later than mid-October, IMO.
Sooooo....everyone back "upstream" (read Ontario/Quebec) has to get their collective act together to prevent any probs later on, weatherwise. Let me/us have further thoughts from you on this.

Agreed on the weather situation. I guess we'll have to see what happens...

I knew Jack's health wasn't so good as he had told me he wanted to be in the relay but had to limit his riding. So sad to hear of his passing, wish he could have got his wish and got to ride in the relay. :(

mark (mark1122) has asked me to ride with him for his leg of the trip. since he only lives about 3 km from me it should be doable.

Ok. the current roster looks like this.

TeK9iNe – Niagara
Jonny - Niagara,
Kawboy74 - David , Burlington
Drooz – Mississauga
mopguy - Toronto
mark1122 - stephenzone - Cobourg
9am53 – Kingston, Moscow
jeffasaki - North Bay
rstnick - Sutton
M357.5 - Owen Sound
JR - Woodstock
Toad - Chatham, Ontario
Renthorin - Dexter Mi.
Street Fighter LTD - Hamburg, Michigan

cregmanz1 - Winnipeg
Killman - Victoria BC.. Might as well take it to the furthest Southwest part of Canada
Tony - I'm in for BC. I can do part of Alberta

H2RICK - I live in Saskatoon but at the moment my bikes are in Regina. I live in Calgary and COULD do a border (Walsh, AB on the east side)-to-border (Lake Louise, AB on the west side) if necessary....or if the weather cooperates, I might go all the way to Golden, BC.
The possibilities are endless....

KZ250LTD - I can carry for Sk, not sure of work schedule at the moment though

i wonder if you west coast guys would benifit more from posting in the leg 3 or 4 thread? not sure wich leg goes by you guys?
i think this thread should have been called the ontario leg, it seem thats all thats going on here for the most part.


dont forget to contact the guys around u and sort things out.

Dont forget me! I'm not part of your relay leg but I'm taking the flag through NB, NS, and NL. I'm thinking about making a side trip to PEI just to say the flag made it there too.

Quebec, as usual, will be left out haha.

Ahh, no thanks. I already have 3600km to cover just to get it from Maine back to NL. And 5 days to do it in, plus two 7 hour ferry rides, woooo! At least the ferry stages will be at night so I can sleep.

Where are we with this for the western leg ?? Do we have any possible dates yet ??

Is the flag coming west around the north side of Lake Superior ?? Or is it going through ON and then back down to the USA through Windsor and then back to Canada through Minnesota/ Manitoba ??

The world wants to know...... ;)

Here is a copy of a proposed route ,from KZJOE900,(from page 1 of this thread).
just so were all on the same page.
I'd like to update the ontario section, if we could nail it down.
I'll need to here were the new guys fit in first though.

The route has changed quite a bit since that map.

After a hand off in St. Joe's Mich. it's going Trough Indiana , Illinois, Wisconsin,
Minnesota and then back into Canada .
Hopefully North and South Dakota can sprout some riders.

I'm not sure there is a legit map of leg 2 :side: for down here.

Renthorin is expressing a want to receive the flag around Windsor ON , meet Street Fighter LTD some where and hopefully hook up with Harm then ride to St. Joseph for Thai food.

I'm handing off to Wendy/DoubleDub in Beloit Wisc. so far.

That will be the end of Leg 2

Tom W is in charge of leg 3, I think there is a map I'll look around.
