The weather was so ideal for riding in Eastern Newfoundland today, that I couldn't resist putting in for some vacation time and taking off for the afternoon on my FZ1. The winds were light and the temperatures were in that nice goldielocks zone, hovering around the 20 degree Celsius mark for most of the day.

I decided to poke around on the twisty coastal roads just north of the Avalon Peninsula. There are no loops I could take in the area, so I had to double back on all the side routes I took. Which wasn't so bad, since most of these areas are so beautiful, and have such fun twisty roads, that riding them all twice was nothing but a pleasure.

Total distance door to door for the afternoon was 501 kms.

Here's some photos...
