Who we got for ADV riders in Atlantic Canada?

Any Adv riders in Nova Scotia (or herring chokers, newfie's, Islanders)?
Where you at? What do you ride? Anybody know of any East Coast ADV Rallye's (hate being the only guy with no leather vest or chrome)?

Perhaps we should organize a little Maritime rallye some weekend, find a nice campground (Sea Foam, Parlee Beach, etc....), do a little riding, maybe have a few beers.....

I'm in Nova Scotia. Out in the western end near Yarmouth. Ride a F650GS. Really rare bike out here in the land of Harley and Harley lookalikes. I would defiantly attend an adventure rally if we had one. I went to the Wharf rat rally last year and saw mostly cruiser bikes. I often wonder if there are any other bikes here that get wet or dirty.

I did hear rumours of an F800GS in town here but have not seen it yet. I really can't figure out why the adventure biking is not catching on.

I do work away from home so I have a 50-50 chance of making it to a rally.

I rode through Yarmouth a few weeks ago. I spent many summer vacations there but unfortunately I didn't have time to look around at the old stomping grounds.

I'd be up for pretty much any meeting spot in the province if my schedule permits.
