The next morning Dan, Paul and Todd must cross back over the border and get home. The've been gone a few days now. Marc is going to lead us halfway up the Bangor Aroostook railbed before letting us fly solo. Tonight we will be in Canada. Our plan is to ride the bed due north for around 130 miles right to the northern border in Maine and cross at St. Leonard.


A pretty high trestle









Northern Maine "aint much heere" and man we love it !








North !


This RR was cut right through the woods long ago.






We eventually cross the small town of Washburn. It's here where Marc must turn back for Houlton.


We bid Marc goodbye for now. He has been and excellent host, giude and now friend. Thanks Marc, your a good man. We salute you good buddie !


We are on our own now. And it's starts to rain. The landscape is now getting noticebly remote. And we ride on for the border and the 800 is rippin ! I think I clocked 75mph










We hit the small border town of Van Buren late in the afternoon and cross without issue.
I relieved we are all across in St. Leanord Canada now and in a motel for this rainy evening.
