Cavalcade ADV
« on: June 24, 2021, 09:08:46 PM »
Take a 42 year old memory, add an 870lb eighties touring bike, a rider old enough to be somebodies grandfather, mix in over a hundred miles of logging and forest access road and what have you got? The Road to Missinaibi River Park. Decades ago I had worked in the area and remember the road in to the park as being a little rough. Had it changed in forty-two years? I was eager to find out. And while it may seem that a sensible fellow would choose a modern, lighweight ADV bike for such a ride (or better yet, an old Guzzi), the Cavalcade was raring to go on an adventure, and who was I to argue?

Gotta say from experience that I do not like a big bike on gravel roads. Watching you on that monster in the deeper dirt made me pucker a few times. How could you sleep in a flimsy tent after seeing bears???? Great job.  :bow:

Hey Nick, are your audiobooks available on Amazon?

Hi, thanks, yes they are. Also through Audible.

Don't confuse me with another author of the same name. We're polar opposites :boozing:

Here's a little more behemoth madness - 7 minutes of SLOW TV with some wonky live commentary.

Don't fret, I'll be back to posting about Guzzis soon enough.
