On the way to the Sault we of course had to stop for a photo op at the big Nickel. Passed some Amish people along the way with their horse and buggy, selling locally grown fruit. Quite a contradictory picture, them in their simple clothes and non-machine run transportation, with forty bikers in leather zooming past them on their loud machines. After that we saw this huge black funnel cloud on one side of the sky and the rain came pelting down again, for a few minutes, followed by a rainbow on the other side...could see the entire thing, just could not quite see the pot of gold
Big Bertha stopped at one point along the highway and Paige got out and was at the back at the trailer and some guy pulled over to tell her he thought it was cool what we are doing, and in fact he had lost his dad to prostate cancer and he was supposed to get checked every six months himself, but... well, sometimes didnt get around to it. Paige gave him the "get it checked" speech and then managed to sell him a jar of our "iron arse" bbq sauce, literally off the back of the trailer.
We made it safely to Sault Ste. Marie and crew and most of our riders congregated for dinner at a local restaurant, North 82.
Great ride today, seeing some really different terrain. Caught glimpses of Lake Nippising and then Lake Huron, great scenery, along with the black rocks of Sudbury.
Tomorrow ... we ride again. To Marathon. Wow. Ontario is a huge province.
