Ok so this year i'm vowing to do more distance riding. After a few failed attempts to orchestrate rides in south america i'm going to turn my attentions north.

I'm looking to do multiple trips a 3-4 day tripper to Montreal, a week up to nova scotia, and a week up to the "eye" of canada Reservoir Manicouagan. If you canada SVRiders could chime in on some nice areas to hit it would be much appreciated. I'll be on my KTM 990 so i fear no dirt and actually welcome as much of it as possible.

If anyone wants to join me the more the merrier. I'll be departing from Northern NJ most times, with possibly from Cortland or Binghamton if some fellow SVriders let me crash on their couch.

Western Canada would have to be a very long trip, at minimum 2 weeks and that would be hauling a$$.

If your planning to hit the Maritimes, let me know!

Bay of Fundy is a great ride. So is along the St-John river in New Brunswick. PEI is worth the detour. Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia is always a classic. Once in your life you must ride the Rock (Newfoudland).

+1 on all this. I was out that way in '97, (when they opened the Confederation Bridge to PEI) had a great time. Actually, every time I've been to Canada I've really enjoyed it.

+2 ! if anyone does come this way there's room for a few. place isnt THAT big.... but the gf's cooking makes up for it

I plan on hitting up PEI this summer(all the family is there) and hopefully do the Cabot Trail too

+1 on heading to Nova Scotia, great place, great people.

There is alot of really good riding in Quebec as well, but once you move away from the cities and the border knowing a little french would be recomended.

You guys should definatly come to western canada. I'm in Victoria B.C. and the riding here is great. But also the interior of the province is supposed to be a wicked ride too, I just havn't made it off the island with my bike yet.

The problem with that is going through Manatoba and Saskatchewan.

Come on, we've got a lot of interesting rides here. Cool twisties and scenery up north, and you don't have to worry about and deer sneaking up on you down south because you can see all the way to montana.

you can make it to BC in 4 days.

I'm planning a trip early-mid June to ride the maritimes, starting in Toronto, working my way through the adirondacks, vermont and then around nova scotia.

Thanks Rich, I feel the same about my trips in the western US as well (haven't been east....yet).

I'd like to see a NW,NE,SW,and SE rally arrangement for svrider.com!

The gap is just too far for a lot of us, especially to attempt yearly. That said, I could suggest numerous possible gathering places in the Northwest. I'm sure we could find something within a "good day's ride" distance for everyone to attend!

You guys (and gals) bring the concealed weapons, us Canucks will bring our super soakers (and better beer), and we'll all have a party!

Isn't that more like invading america then hightailing it back over the boarder before the americans find out?

****it, well, i thought i'd make it to at least new england before someone firgured out what i was up to.

unless you want to call it "picking up some yanks (am I allowed to call people from northeast America 'yanks'?) on their way into Canada and escorting them behind enemy lines."

but then, that would make me a collaborator.

what's worse, a spy who's found out, or a collaborator?

man, so confusing. see it's simply easier being friendly; no as confusing.

I'm thinking about making it an extended memorial day weekend to invade montreal in June. What are good times of year to invade Nova Scotia and or further north?
