2017 Northern Drifter Rendezvous
« on: August 02, 2017, 20:14:10 PM »

   So the first Northern Drifter Rendezvous is now in the books. The event seems to have been a good one. I heard nothing bad or negative from any of the attendees.
   Farthest Driven was 49 Reo and his lovely wife
   Farthest Ridden was BabyFace and his deadweight spouse
   Best personalized Drifter Was Tom Erwin
   Best 1500 was Wayne
   Best 800 was GreenBarn

Excellent time, too bad Ratman slept in on the final day and I didn't get a chance to say good buy before I left.

 :o I am telling Aunt Tracy you lie, I was in the front desk and was asking if you had checked out and I was trying to run out to see you but my leg buckled under me and I was down I near came close to losing my leg because I wanted to say goodbye to my Uncle Rolly.....you could not even wait an extra 5 mins, you only have a 5 hour ride to get home.......you had to leave at 0 dark hundred and not say good bye....I am also going to tell Harley to bit you......lol

I would have liked to have seen that. Just kidding. I actually forgot to check out. I had to do so by phone when I got home.
You were up in the restaurant by 7:00 am most mornings and I left at 8:00, Greenbarn and JoBear will attest to that. I even talked with the young Drifter and his wife for a few minutes outside before I got underway. Gotta house to get ready to sell! You looking for  a house near an airport?

Nice job Ratman. Looks like you had a great turn out. Sorry I couldn't make it.

But now that it is a hit, I'm sure you'll have it again. Great pics. Nice to see Mr. Greenbarn get some recognition for his resto-mod efforts. Cool.

I thank you Sir for the kind words. I most likely will not be hosting another event in this area, as those that did attend have ridden the best rides in the area. This is one bad part of living here there is only so many roads to ride and then you are going over them all the time. I know that a couple who attended this event have offered to host an event in their area of Ontario in 2019, and so I will be attending that one for sure. They are in the Sault Ste. Marie area. I am just glad everyone had a good time and there was no drama and no BS to deal with......

 But to also add that anyone is ever up here and wants to be taken on a toured ride of the area just needs to let me know when you will be here....and we can see if we can arrange something.....

Here is the link for the video that Uncle Rolly made from this summer's event. I think he did a fantastic job of it and it is really nice to watch so if you like it please let him know, but not too much as his helmet will never fit him again......please enjoy this....

Wow! Great video!
I really enjoyed. It seems to me to be there (but unfortunately I wasn't...  :-\ ).
And I really like the screenshots of the bikes...

Ratman: Indeed I did, and don't think I didn't want to be there. I looked at the map and the mileage...it was very doable.
....I squared away a lot of estate and personal business this year. If I can stay on track...things might look good for next year.  Also have to catch up on maintenance including get some new tread on my 800...ready for both tires....and maybe some brake work while I get that front hub cover on....
