Work is busy as hell, the stretch of fantastic warm weather in Newfoundland is waning and I just finished (I hope) dealing with a cooling system leak on the bike. Obviously, it's time to take a motorcycle/camping trip to Newfoundland. Fredericton to North Sydney via Cape George and Cabot trail on Friday. Midnight sailing to Port aux Basques and a quick run over to the east side (Lockston Path PP) for Saturday night. I am going to spend a couple of days doing some rides along the east coast, Bonavista and around the Avalon. I will work my way back to P aux B for a return on July 29 or 30, I think. Burin Peninsula, Harbour Breton/English Harbour, Fogo/Twillingate etc., Gros Morne, Trout River, possibly up to the top of the NP, ferry to Blanc-Sablon for a night if the weather is good. Port au Port and other side excursions if time and weather permit. Riding a 2007 Yamaha FJR (black cherry colour) so it will be almost all paved roads (don't mind short stretches of good dirt). Mostly camping if the temperatures are reasonable and minimal precipitation. If the weather takes a dump, my return might be sooner than expected. Not my first trip to Newfoundland but I am hoping to get to a couple of places I haven't been, revisit some of the favorites from past trips and just relax and get away from it all for a week or so. If you see me on the road or at a campsite, introduce yourself. Let me know via forum PM if you want to do some riding or share campsite accommodations when I'm in your area. Other than a definite start time and an approximate end time, I don't have any sort of fixed itinerary. If I'm missing something that I should really see, I'm open to suggestions. I have done a fair amount of the touristy things in the St. John's area and I have done the run down to Burgeo (and Sandbanks PP). I have done the "Road to the Shore" (Hwy 330) before but never really took any side trips off the highway. I have also covered most of the the remainder of the Avalon (but not above Heart's Content) and some of the north coast between Twillingate and Baie Verte. Obviously, this is a fairly ambitious plan for a little more than a week and I may have to make some compromises along the way. (I tend to spend a far higher proportion of my time riding than stopping!) Spotwalla link for my trip will be: https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php?id=156fc597011712e318&hoursPast=0&showAll=yes VERY rough Streets and Trips map (below) of where I plan to go but not in the order tagged on the map. The Blanc-Sablon ferry was an afterthought so doesn't appear (and may not happen).
