    Cool, didn't realize that's where that was filmed. I checked out a few of the locations Maudie was filmed when I was out that way last year. They did some in the Goulds as well.

    Went for a ride around the Cape Shore loop on Monday. Had the little 250 so I scooted across from Colinet to Placentia (route 91) and rode it counter clockwise to avoid the TCH. Beautiful weather.

    Picture of the steed south of Placentia.

    And if you have the patience (it is a 250), the ride from St. Catherine’s to Placentia.

    I'm in Ste Anne de Bellevue visiting friends for a couple of days and went to the office for my new work for half the day today before they fly me to BC tomorrow.

    My very good friend's boyfriend is a motor head, he races vintage bikes, that being a couple of Ducatis and had a bunch of other machines floating around. Monday and today we went out scooting around and I got to ride a sidecar rig for the first time. My friend even trusted me to drive.:p

    This one is double wide so you have to pay attention.

    Made it to Harbour Breton this evening.

    Ride report to follow. Let's just say that the Minister of Transportation is going to get a nasty email from me later...

    Spending 2 nights here as we got here 9pm. Crossing pools Cove Friday for Fortune for the night. Then onto Bonivista

    I'll be interested in the rest of the story. I am thinking about taking myself and bike on the ferry from bay L'Argent to Pools Cove in a couple of weeks. Saves 6+ hours of riding and repetitive out-and-back rides on the Burin and Connaigre.

    You can pop by but I'm not there. You could stop and wave at the missus.
