Atlantic Canada may18 at the latest

I rode my klr from BC to Quebec and im taking a break here with the family. Planning the next stretch to Newfoundland over the next week. I lost my riding partner in Quebec and hoping to meet a new one for the next stretch. I do lots of mileage in a day but I stop alot too. My plan is now starting from the eastern townships of quebec, through USA (vermont/new hampshire/maine) back into Canada, stop for a visit with a friend in Minto NB (outside fredericton), then head to Sidney NS Sleep on the ferry to Argentia into St-John`s Nfld. Then ride back to Port-aux-Basques Nfld and ferry back to NS then to PEI. Then back to quebec through Gaspé. Spend a week in Quebec and then back for BC. Im leaving on the 18th at the latest hoping to go much before as I did so much riding lately that it`s hard to stay still, never been to the atlantic!

Even for a short stretch it would be cool to ride with someone!

made it back to Quebec, had a great trip, Cape Spear NFLD, Cabot trail NS, and Lobster fishing in Digby was exceptionnal. Getting Ready for the next leg Heading back to BC. Gonna cut up in northern Alberta to hit up NWterritories, Yukon and Alaska before going back down to BC. Met some awesome riders on the road. Hope to see some of you on the next leg.

The KLR went great, blew out a bald rear tire but everything else went great!
