Off we went today at 06:00 AM.
Two months and counting. The road planning part of the trip is complete. Going Hwy 220 up through NC into Roanoke, VA. Then I81 up through VA, PA, I84 through NY, I95 through MA, RI, Hwy 1 through MA and New Brunsvick into Nova Scotia. About 1500 miles one way.
It will take about 3 1/2 days or so to get up there.
We think we’ve got everything we need for the trip. 99% of the time you take more with you than you need, so no worries.
The bikes are as ready as they can be. What do you expect? They are both Honda bikes. Top reliability all around.
Hopefully the weather will hold up for the entire trip, but knowing how itcan change very quickly close to the atlantic, specially fog, I suspect we will have some rain / fog, at least on the eastern coast of Nova Scotia.
As usual, I’ll be headed up to the top of Morrow Mountain, NC New Years day. We do this every New Years day, weather permitting. A few ST owners get together, and meet for a chat around noon time, then head back down to find a place to eat. Supposed to be pretty chilly in the morning. We’ll see what happens. Last years
bunch pictured below.
Come August 2009, we plan to make the trip to Nova Scotia, Canada, and back. Spending 3 weeks, we will go around the entire NS in a counter-clockwise fashion. If we have time left, we might hop over to PEI (Prince Edward Island) for a couple of days.
August 1.st – August 23.rd is the plan for now.
Cabot Trail is on of the main destinations among others.
