Still loving this RR. Thanks so much. I checked the Blog and see you are in Montreal - great city! I lived there for about 6 years. (I read ZERO of your language but some words are universal.)
If you plan on coming back to the States consider a visit to western NY. I'm in Rochester and it's about 4 to 5 hours from Montreal (west). There is very pretty rural and forest riding around here and in central PA just south of us. We'd be glad to put you up for a few days. (You can also easily get to Niagara Falls and Toronto from here.) ... but I'm guessing you'll go east from Montreal The Gaspe peninsula is very pretty. still, PM me if you are interested. [We're gone this coming weekend, but other than that ...]
Looking forward to more of this fabulous report. Congratulations!!
