    Does anyone have any rides, routes, or tracs in nova Scotia, Newfoudland, or Labrador?  Looking for recommendations on what to see and do.

    Dave, be sure to checkout Cape Breton island and also meat cove. I rode my Kawasaki Z1 900 there about 40 years ago.

    Sounds like fun. Chris Dobyns did a ride in that area several years ago. You might give him a call. Ruth and Jim did it many years ago. I recall they had a lot of suggestions on the area.  So a call to Ruth may be useful.

    Thanks Darryl, both suggestions look good based on the guide books.

    Thanks Harry,  I’ll try to hook up with them to see what they suggest.  Pennington also went there recently.

    My wife and I were there about 10 years ago in Sept, Several highlights were, Bay of Fundy, Tide changes that boogled the imagination. Baddeck, home of Alexandar Graham Bell labs. Meat cove somebody mentioned, best lobster rolls anywhere. Cabot trail of course, just a few of many.

    We went to Newfoundland this past summer and back in 2012. Pretty much all of Newfoundland has something worth seeing but the western part Gros Morne National Park is more scenic, going to the top of the Northern Peninsula to St. Anthony is a long ride but you get into a kind of sub arctic landscape, Viking Settlement and Icebergs well into July.  The first year we went on the island at Port aux Basque and left on the ferry from Argentia which allowed us to see a large part of the island including St. John’s.  This year we rode to the end of Route 138 in Quebec and then had the bike loaded on a ship and travelled along the coast to Labrador and then caught a ferry from there to Newfoundland.

    Outside of the urban areas there are lots of B&Bs and not so many hotels, the seafood is terrific.
