Lake Temiskaming Tour
They heard it.  They heard the calling.  Legendary ancient explorers were drawn to this great waterway to seek a better life, a life full of the rich natural resources it holds.  Travelling by giant canoes, they peered around each bend in the shoreline looking for it.  Today, your motorcycle guides you around each bend.  As the route winds and twists its way around this historic lake, through two provinces and three distinct cultures, you will follow the ghosts of the past…in search of your calling.

When you hear the calling, you follow it.  When the sun goes down, you pull over. Not because you are tired, but out of respect to rest the wheels that have gotten you here.
You eat not by choice but out of necessity to power your journey.  Food is a time to reflect. Food is bountiful in the north. 
You stop and linger.  Along your journey you stop often to learn from those that rode before you.  You absorb the smells, and engage with the people that inspire you to carry on.
Sometimes you just need a place where you can kick stand the bike, lay in the grass, stare at the sky and be humbled.   
Just like your soul it can become undone.  Your bike is part of you, and knowing it can be put back together reassures you to carry on.
