This background picture shows a cold and wet July day in Newfoundland. We endured a very long 3 hour cold wet ride to Roddington for breakfast; finally at about 11:30 am at the Mayflower Inn. I stuffed myself with Newfie scuff (toutons with molasses, baked beans, scrambled eggs, toast and a Newfie steak). Jim got this picture between Englee and Bide Arm in the afternoon in somewhat improved weather conditions. At least I’m riding with a full stomach.
In 2008, 2009 & 2010 I’ve ridden to The Great Smokey mountains and the Tail of the Dragon with the RoadToads. 2009 2-up to Cape Breton. 2010 Vstrom get-together in Montrose Colorado 20 days, 20 states and 10,000km and 2-up to North Carolina. 2011 around the Gulf of the St Lawrence River and 2-up toured the New England states.
I’m now busy planning my trip to Vancouver for this coming summer by way of the Badlands, the Black Hills and lots of passes in the Rocky Mountains in both Canada & the US including Glacier National Park.
