“Do you mind if we stop in New York on our way to Newfoundland” I asked Angela…I got one of those; are you nuts looks…I briefly explained my thought process and pleaded a little bit….Guess we are going to Newfoundland via New York and what a ride it was..
Part 3: Worlds Longest Motorcycle Demo Ride is here!
Part 3: Worlds Longest Motorcycle Demo Ride
This leg of the Worlds Longest Demo Ride will take us further east across the Canadian Shield, through Sault Ste Marie, across the Georgian Bay on Lake Huron, ride the beautiful Bruce Region. We stop for a family wedding in Burlington Ontario, cross the international border at Niagara falls NY and slowly made our way to Pine Bush which is just a short apple throw away from New York City.
Cabin on the North Channel
We left Marathon Ontario, under cold cloudy skies and thoughts of rain were upon us. The weather cleared up and we made our way just south east of Saul St. Marie to a friends cabin right on Lake Superiors North Channel. We were greeted to a wonderful home cooked meal in a renovated rustic cabin that had once been a lighthouse keepers residence. Thank you Marie, David, Cory and Cathy for all the hospitality.
Ferry Ride to Tobermory for some R&R
Our destination the next day was Cathy and Cory’s residence just outside Burlington. To get here we decided to take the Manitoulin Island ferry from South Baymouth to Tobermory and glad we did, it was beautiful. Meeting us on the other side of the ferry was our friends Cathy and Cory who delightfully guided us through the beautiful and historic Bruce area to their home just outside of Guelph Ontario. We parked our rears here for a couple days to unwind and do some catching up on laundry and editing..What great friends and unbelievable hosts..thank you.
Here comes the Bride, family wedding
We made our way to Burlington and stayed at the beautiful Waterfront hotel. The city of Burlington was a big surprise as it has a small town feel, no big skyscrapers and a small, vibrant downtown area right on the waterfront.
We happily attended Sean and Julie’s outside wedding, and enjoyed the sunshine during the ceremony and the celebration that took place with many family and friends, congrats guys!
Peak Powersports in Oakville ON
We attended a BBQ in our honor at Peak Powersports in Oakville on Saturday under a torrential downpour and had Angela’s belt adjusted while there. Thank you to all of you who came out to say hello. Thanks also to the owners who were more than accommodating.
Hello Niagara Falls
We left Burlington and made our way to one of Canada’s most famous attractions, Niagara falls. The route we took through Niagara on the lake was just as beautiful. We were amazed at the beauty and power of the falls and could not believe how many other tourists were there as well. It should not be missed.
Crossing into New York State
We crossed into the USA at Niagara Falls with out pain and delay and spent the next couple of days riding through the small towns of New York state with our surprise destination of Pine Bush NY and a visit to LLoyd’z Motorworkz..stay tuned to the next episode to see all the fun we had at this Victory and Indian performance specialists shop!
