Default New York to Nova Scotia

First leg of the trip today, 450 miles to Bangor Maine.
Rode the first 4 hours on secondary roads but then we realized that we were way behind schedule, so onto the interstate
Cranked out many hours on the interstate, 11.5 hours after we left this morning we were in Bangor. With a Sportster in the group we had to stop every 75 miles for gas. That killed our schedule. Everybodies bike ran great.
Rain forecast for tomorrow, 400 miles to our motel on Nova Scotia.

Thanks for the update. Have fun (although I'd have to get my head around those 75-mile stops).

Cheers,

Summer of 2012, I road from Boston to Bangor, then to St. John NB, took the ferry over to Digby NS. Hit Halifax for a couple days then up over the Cabot Trail and back. It was absolutely awesome. I picked up a book that was all about motorcycling NS and it was an great help. Very nice people and roads. I hear the Wharf Rat Rally in Digby is an absolute must for any bike rider.

Enjoy and ride safely. Everyone told me to "watch out for moose" but I never saw a single one.

The wife and I spent 35 days touring N.E. and into Canada. Spent 6 days in Main. We never saw a moose. The only wildlife we saw was Alvin the Chimp monk. Must say the north east is beautiful compared to what we see in Fla.

Day 2, left Bangor at 8am at 58 degrees, took rte 9 through some really desolate country. The sportster was sniffing fumes by the time we got to civilization. It started raining on us after a couple hours, then it got cold. Finally to the border about 1 after stopping for brunch.
The highways are absolutely beautiful up here. The sun popped out and the rain gear came off. 74 degrees in Canada. It's a long run to Antigonish, arrived here at 8:30 our time, 9:30 up here (no daylight savings) 421 miles today.
The Ultimate seat saved my ass, it was super comfy
The bugs on the other hand are more than a meal and my new shorter windvest didn't do a lot to stop them.
Got some pics in my iPhone but I'm updating this from my iPad and the pics haven't synced yet.
