I'll load up the R100RS with some clothes, camping gear, espresso maker a few cigars (yup, cubans because we can), my camera and leave Ontario and head over top of the Lakes and angle down slowly to Gillette. In Gillette I am meeting 2 other airhead-riding friends making their way from Vancouver. Once we are done with the Rally we'll head back towards Vancouver (BC) with the exact route probably decided the morning we leave.
My girlfriend will be surfing in Tofino so I'll meet her in Vancouver and we'll suit up for a ride back across the Rockies through BC. The current plan is to drop her off in Calgary where she will fly home and I'll keep on truckin' back towards Ontario. I think I'll loop a bit north through the Prairies and drop down through Northern Ontario.
Being from Halifax, but now living in Ontario, I feel a bit ripped off that I am not doing a true trans-continental and back, but at 8800 estimated kilometers it is still shaping up for a good trip.
A second mini-trip will be the RA rally in Michigan Upper Peninsula this June. I had already planned to do a loop around Lake Huron and the rally is only a few miles further so ta-dah that's my second trip.
Best wishes to everyone out there this summer on two wheels! I'll wave!
