Motorcycle Routes in Ontario
For many in Ontario, the best way to see it all is by motorcycle on the open road. Whether you are a short day tripper, or you plan for longer rides, there are plenty of routes to choose from, giving you the best that this beautiful and vast province has to offer.
One thing is for sure, you want to be fully prepared before you head out. Check your bike over, and then check it again. Have your permits, maps and insurance papers ready and check the weather too. Whether you are heading out solo, or in a large group, you need to be prepared for whatever may come along the road.
