So I am telling my wife about this great ride report, and I just happen to mention that you started from Toronto. She then pipes up " I wonder if it was my (wife's) motorcycle course instructor from the spring". I show her a shot of Neda, and sure enough it was her. What a small world. She had a great time and was very surprised that she passed. She did the Mother's day weekend course.

Loving your writing style and fantastic photography, not to mention the great humour.

Best wishes for a great journey.

That's awesome! It is a small world!

We were hiking a couple of days ago and when we returned to the bikes at the end of the day, I found a note stuck inside my helmet. Someone who was following us online recognized our bikes and wrote us a hello note. How cool is that!

Hope your wife has her own ride now and that we'll see you both on the road soon!

Hey Gene, re your comments about getting tingly when on the edge of a cliff.....did you ever go up to the top of the CN tower and do that walk around outside on the five foot wide ledge? Just saw this on TV....looked cool. They have you harnessed to an overhead track but you have enough leeway that you can stand with your toes over the edge and lean out over the void. Lovin' the RR and think it's great that you're taking your time and seeing everything you want to as you go. The urge to cover ground, make progress, is powerful....for me too. But reading your RR I can see there's definitely an advantage to doing it your way rather than putting an overall time limit on your trip or focusing on making miles. Thanks!

EdgeWalk! I thought it would be cool to lean out over 1000 feet above the top of Toronto with nothing holding you but a thin strap of fabric, until I saw the price - $200 tax in... Nuh uh! I'd rather bungie jump twice for that price. That way I'd get the itch to leap off tall things out of my system, at least temporarily.

wow!! Didn't realize it was so expensive. Yeah, can't see doing it for that price when there's bungie jumping.
