Great photos. Do you have more??? to post?
Wish I did The trip was a little hurried so I didn't find myself stopping as much as I'd like. Once it started raining I stopped even less. Now, I wish I'd had stopped more often. Not really for the scenery, as in Labrador it seemed to take miles (or kilometers) to change, but because when I stopped, I notice more of the little things and got a sense of how "in the middle of nowhere" you are.

I also missed the coast of Labrador which I'm guessing is outstanding. For that matter, I missed a lot of Newfoundland too. Guess I'll need to return when I have about 3 to 4 months

Another awesome report

Man, I guess that now-a-day motorcycle dealership will not replace a bike tire if not purchase from them. It must be because of their internal regulations, lidigation, safety and ignorance on their part. And of course, you did not bring in any profit to them. I also find it very distastefull, that they will not service a bike if it's over 10 years old. This bull crap, is enough to make you brain explode in anger.....

I've not run into the 10 year problem but I do all the work on my own bikes - just can't find a dealer that can keep a good mechanic. The tire problem is more of an issue especially on a long distance trip. The first time it happened to me I was speechless I thought they where kidding! I mean, who says I should trust the way they handle a tire. If there is a catastrophic failure with a tire, theirs or mine, I'm still the one riding the bike! Lucky, it's only been in the good old USA that I've had this happen and lately, I've been doing most of my riding outside of the US
