I highly recommend the east coast of Canada including Nfld.
John, the temps varied from the 90s to 40s. I dressed in layers so that I could add/remove as necessary. For instance when I was up on Beartooth it was in the 40s, but when I came down out of the mountains it was in the 80s in the valley. I have not ridden the bike in Canada yet. I have read about the trans lab highway and must say that interest me. I have been to New Brunswick hunting thats about it. That 86 ride sounds like a good one.
