Hacking North by NorthEast...

Hi All....

Hacking North by Northeast….

I suppose we should be posting this in the ADV Ride Reports forum, but again it is so much more appropriate to post a sidecar adventure here among all my Hack brethren. We hope the powers to be that monitor this site will again, once more, allow us to post our trip report in the Hack Forum.

Inmate Abenteuerfahrer here with my frau, Sharon, who after
having Hacked eventfull to….(”Hacking North by Northwest”) Alaska last summer. We’re yet again being lured of all things NORTH and do another excursion to somewhere where icebergs are which have eluded me in 2008.

When I transited the Trans-Lab-Highway(TLH) solo in 2008 I was so taken by its beauty that I convinced Sharon to see and do Newfoundland this summer with me. So, here we are ”Hacking North by Northeast” to Newfoundland in search of icebergs; ogling at the 150 bars in St. Johns, and eating Baquettes et du fromage in France (??). Our full report will start at the Canadian border which should commence tomorrow, weather permitting. We hope to offer you a live daily report barring internet availability. Come along, give advice, offer encouragements and for those who cannot go---enjoy the ride from your armchair this summer.

PMd you with my number. If you need a place to stay as you pass thru VT, give me a call. Will treat you to grilled lamb (we grow our own) and fine microbrews if I can salivate over your rig!

Yo Amigos...

Thanks all for the well wishes...

Claude: YES, the tire is good and most of all seems to give me extra fuel miles Was good to finally met and see you. You're cool, so is the wife and your team.

Hmmnn....see PM; ggrrrr....

Hondachopper: Again I hope you'll dream on to do the same in your MGA of course with your fair maiden in tow!

Aceph....Hi boss, thanks for letting me post here and wishing you a good summer.

This is a Prelude of better things to come. Zoomed North to get to the border. The ride has been cold by North Carolina standards and we believe we're heading into something c-o-l-d this early.

North to CSM( Claude Stanley Motors) for a tire change. My car tire on the BMW somehow developed inner carcass failure. Headed to the venerable Claude for a tire change. I had met him only on the internet during my travels and he was always there during my eventful Alaska trip to help and make suggestions. Bless the man.

Did I miss Claude who resides in MIddleburg, PA instead I am already in Newfoundland??

Additional spare car tire...Vexen 165/15

Here's the real Claude (pron: Klaud..not like the French" Klaude") and his lovely wife.....

Hey Klaud, you're famous now!

Bid Claude and team Adieu within an hour after changing tires and headed for New York. Overnighted in Newburgh, NY, lo and behold a HD rider told me to follow him to OCC (Orange County Choppers which was a stones throw from our motel. For those that don't know this TV series of battling Father and Son chopper business to the highest creative innovation. Their bikes cost $$$$$$$$$.

Here's their Pavillon...

Off to points North...

The beach at the town of Ogunquit, ME

It's cold up here....uuhhhh....

I am lucky to have a good understanding wife..while she browses, she lets me sip on my strong coffee and gaze at the passerbys.


After having my front tire changed; valves adjusted; throttle bodies alighned at Max BMW we stayed in this cool town of Ogunquit for the night then next day headed further North in search for the ultimate fried whole belly clams.

After Lunch it's to Bucksport..

Picture postcard copy of the area..

Maine Lobsta....from there to....


Adios...till Nuevo Scotia..

Onward to Neuva Scotia you guys...

Elmar and Sharon:

Good to see your thread is up and running, but this time way over thar on the northeast side.

So you are entering Neuva Scotia leaving Saint John at 1200 hrs as I gather. Plan to do the counterclockwise loop up towards Halifax?

Your pixes are, hmm as usual, GREAT!!

Watching this with great interest and some nostalgic because I was up at the Cabot Trail via Gaspe on my Ultra last summer.

Take care!!
