The scenery of the fall colors is beautiful!
This is bound to be every bit as good as your Idaho RR, one of the best of ADV!

Did you have enough fuel range with the F800 in the remote north woods?

I don't know how the hell you remember half the roads we were on, I can barely remember what day it is!

Thanks.
The bikes performed excellent. They were built for this kinda stuff. The F650 was a bit taxed on ground clearance though.

Great ride !! I would love to try it. I can't find Mallowgy Mountain Road on any map. Can you point me in the right direction ?

Nice RR -

You started out in VT at Jacques Store, in Huntington, just past Beaudrys' store.

I grew up shopping those two stores.

Back to the trip.
We are making our way through interior New Brunswick for the recommended Serpentine Lodge. A "no-fluff" camp, out in the big woods that hunters and snowmobilers use, run by a fella named Allaire. We were warned, "it's not luxury, but it hjas character", we were all over it. Also, Zaner32, or JP as his mother calls him , another NBDSC member, was on his way there also from Moncton NB. He just couldn't take it anymore and had to join us. So he was coming inland from the coast and we were coming in from the west to meet today at Serpentine Lodge.

Mount Carleton. The highest peak in the Canadien Maritimes. And the colors, just look at them !



The Elevin mile road. From the Mount Carleton area this road will take us to Serpentine.




This road let us really open up the bikes. Bruce was ahead of me on the SE and I know I was clocking 70-80mph (thats not clicks you crazy Canucks ) and he pulled away from me still !
I mean the real threat up here is a moose and there are a lot of them.


We pull into the Serpentine Lodge around 1500. The boys from NBDSC that were home and tracking our progress via satilite had already called Allear the owner and told him we were coming in tonight. Contacting Allear is another trick since there is no electric or phone out here.


Allear runs everything by his own generator.


It's warm and sunny. DK takes this time to do some maintence on his 950S


Look over DK's bike. Thats nothing but big woods. Tomorrow we will ride through it following my NBDSC preloaded route towards the coast and the Northlumberton Strait.


Tim and I decide to take this oppertunity and ride to Serpentine Lake a few miles from the lodge and back in the woods. Its a favorite camp spot of NBDSC.
Serpentine Lake


It's hard to convey the quiet solitude this place emits. You hear abosuley nothing but the breeze through the trees. No boats, no houses, no people. Just raw Canadien wilderness.


A pristine brook running away from the lake, water on it's journey back to it's mother ocean. (you like that Huegel ? )



Would a trip like this be possible without the help from great guys like the NBDSC ? Not a chance, you'd be just throwing darts at map me boy.

Tim and ride back out and back to the lodge were JP has arrived.

From left to right.
Bruce, Dennis, DK, Allear, JP & a moose hunter.

Allear and JP. Both great guys. Allear was a funny son of gun. We instantly loved him.


Allear and his very cool dog. I got a cool dog too, but she's at home with mommy in bed.


In was going to get cold tonight. In our cabin now, having a few beers eh, and shooting the breeze with JP. JP was a super guy and one heack of a rider. Not to mention he has good taste in bikes.


My bunk for the night.


The next morning after loosing about 20lbs due to sweat, I quadrupple check todays route which is to take us to Blackville, very close to the coast. This where we planned to rendevous Paul again for the lobster boil.
Why the heat ? Flippin Bruce, Redcorn Kenny, loaded that stove with about a cord of wood right before we went toes up. Holy flip ! I think the paint was peeling off the walls by 2am


A French Canadien hunter came in early with Bullwinkle.



So after a great breakfast that Allear cooked us, and fuel for the Super Enduro from Allear, we all head out together. This would prove to be another great day !


You have to remember, not every road out here is on the map. So I had to desipher the instructions I got from Robb Wallace (NBDSC) prior to the trip. JP, had never gone this way either, so it was new to all of us. Robb's instructions were right on. Go right here.



Bruce would kill me if I didn't post these pics. You see he was already through and saw this coming, so he was ready with camera. Bastard..


Yea, I got wet

JP and his fine choice of machine


It had rained the night before but it posed no problem. Riding through these thick conifer forests was really cool.


Dennis's "4" of travel" bike would speak to him going over this. Good thing he is an excellent rider and handled it with ease.


I'm in the middle of New Brunswick Canada on this track and I know it will eventually lead us where we want to go. How cool is that ?


My F800 throwing quite a bow wake.


And coming ashore unscathed. Yup, those snorkles work and TT panniers are water proof !


Dennis


DK


Man Overboard !


Of course Mr. big shot ISDE rider makes it look easy.


We continue towards Blackville and the coast !
