My best riding buddy, also named Brian, and I took a rip over to Nova Scotia and back. Probably the last big ride of this season, before snow drifts block our path.
We took the ferry first just for the experience. It is $40 to take the boat vs. $18 for the bridge but we save on gas and always meet interesting people.
It was well worth the ride. I am quicking discovering that Nova Scotia has the best riding in the Maritimes, if you love twisty turns and beautiful scenery. But pack a lunch, not many places to stop along the road.
This section of road was literally as good as the Cabot Trail. But nowhere to stop for photo ops or places to eat.
We met a nice couple from Turro who was also named Brian and his wife Wanda. I thought a black hole might form with that many Brians standing in the same place doing the same thing. I have concluded that most Brians ride motorcycles and are nice guys with generous natures. Brian Scott started a cottage business making motorcycle bags in leather.
It was a great ride. Left at 8am, got home at 8pm.
