Cool! I want to go!
What are they using for lift points?
Is this "At your own risk" or is it entirely their responsibility?
I say again
Don't have crash bars on the FJR or any place I think would be safe lifting from above. (I had assumed that they would have loaded onto a pallet and winched that onto the boat.)
Cylinder heads and rear wheel for me on the Burgeo/ Hr Breton leg but they use a lift platform from Pooles Cove.
Lift platform sounds better. Can't think where you could safely attach lift straps on my bike without damaging plastics or risk flipping it over by going too low.
Hard pass for me.
Apparently this boat has only been on the run 2years. Crew said they never ever put a bike on it before...
The old boat had a platform...
It was definitely sketcky... At my risk.. not theirs... Oh yeah... Good luck finding somewhere to strap it down
Hard pass on the direct crane lift or loading on a platform?
I'm looking at 540 km and almost 6 hours from Bay L'Argent on the Burin to Pool's Cove on the Connaigre. Compared to a few hours on a ferry and less than $30.
It may be sketchy but sure makes for a cool photo
I'm not scared, I'll definitely put my bike up there!
Hard pass on the crane only. And a softer pass on the platform.
My 640 I don't give a shit, my 1100 is not going down there.
Wow. First time I heard of it.... Definitely a must see place
Yup, popular biker spot!
" Let's just say that the Minister of Transportation is going to get a nasty email from me later..."
...because they wouldn't let you stay aboard your bike during the lift, right? LOL
Where is that again?
I'm at work in BC, no bike but pretty country around here and a lot of marked hikes. We did Emperor something or other today. My first long hike.
pretty country, they call this rock formation shipyard
Where in BC? Beautiful picture. Are you there for long and do you have to self-isolate when you return home?
I'm in Tumbler Ridge, pretty far north near Peace River. Not sure about the self isolation when I return, no big deal either way.
Great place. Spent a month there. Just a little way outside town you can walk down to the Brook and there are dinosaur tracks in the sandstone. ReAlly neat.
Golfed there one time... Didn't finish 18 holes as a massive grizzly was sat in middle of fairway ..lol....
I'm booked here for 5 weeks. I've already been to see the dinosaur tracks, pretty interesting. I'm going to go to the dinosaur museum one of these days.
