    I do try to avoid I-95, took US1/ME3 for the first 100 miles from Bar Harbor to Augusta. Home at noon, rode through 200 miles of heavy rain that's now over NS. Hope everyone has good rain gear. Mine held up pretty well, but I junked the pinlock for the facesheild. It's just two more surfaces for water to collect on.



    Rain story: Last night, getting close to running out of gas, stopped at no-name gas and general store in Amherst, ME. Three separate guys got out of their pickups one after another and said:

    "Man, you're gonna get wet."
    "I've got gear for it."
    "That's like those BMW riders, they just keep going."
    "Yeah, this is my Vstrom, and there's a BMW in the driveway too, but any kind of rider on the road for several days is prepared for it. "

    Then another guy came in while I was paying for gas and told me I was riding right into it. Laughed -- told them all to have a good night.

    My wife and I took the fast ferry from Bar Harbor three years ago and spent eight days riding around nova scotia on our 87 k75,we went back two weeks ago with the car and picked up where we left off, we will need to go a few more times. We had quite a bit of rain when we were on the bike, but this year five days one rain shower.
    I want to get up there with the group some one of these years.

    Yeah, that was the last year it ran. I've been to NS 4 times now and haven't really begun to see it all. It's huge.

    I'm not crazy about it Bud, Russell started on my new seat Tuesday. The KonTour is okay, but not as good as my last Russell.

    The 2012 Salty Fog Riders Rally has concluded. What a time! This year was an opportunity to see this part of Nova Scotia from mild to wild. A sunny and tranquil first few days blended into an opportunity to see some rain and the ocean churning madly in the Highlands. Concluding with sunshine and winding vistas on Friday. The grins never ended.

    Stay tuned for the Report in a separate thread

    Uh...

    cant fool me twice Paul! No extra soup or fish appetizer before dinner....
    This year, I knew what the wall oven in that lovely kitchen held. No dum
    comments like last years "why does this fantastic chicken soup smell like ham"
    Lets say I "paced myself" before dinner with ONLY three bowls... easy on the bread!
    I did however see a guy eat lobsters like Mack eats mackrell!
    Also of note: by the shore of Lake Big Bras d Or, the fries at Lick-a-Chick...
