August 26th. St John, NL to New Melborne, NL

Rode to the very eastern point in North America!! Wahooo! Then Skibum69 who is out of town told me where his keys to his house were.... And let me use his garage to do my 6,000 mile service! What a great guy. Thanks Mike

Mileage for the day 150.

Weather, started out Partly sunny, then some light rain moved in. Not a big deal since I had planned to stop early to do my Service.

Started my morning with a great Breakfast since I stayed in a B&B (splurge) since it was late and I was at the Pub


This town has a real british feel. Row houses and lots of pubs and places to eat.





Then rode up to Signal Hill to check out the views of St John's







Newfoundlander and Labradors....



view out to the Light house for the harbor



Looked like there was a WWII bumkers there also



Wind was blowing some rain in later.... Better hurry over to Cape Spear.





Once at Cape Spear, I rode past the gate to get a photo with this sign.





As I moved my bike back to the parking lot, I started talking to one of teh Rangers who works there. He asked If i rode down to get a photo with the real sign. I said, no. He said. "normally your not allowed" but it is not very crowded....... I took his hint and rode down the paved path to get the photo.



Most easterly point ! Wow I started at the Most Westerly point with Camogreg, ode to the Most southern US point and the Most eastern US point, now most Eastern North America. Time to ride back west



The old light house





Oh yea, Enjoying the sunshine in NL



Awesome views.





This road was fun



Then a Quick stop at the BMW dealer for one extra supply. Met Keith... really nice guy!



On my way out to Skibums house on the coast..... Had to take the photo....





real town in NL




Stopped for a great meal along the way. Seafood Chowder and Cod Au Graten

A big fan.....

Mark,

I've been following you for the past couple of years and now I can settle back and keep on eye on things for quite some time. It's been great seeing all of the things you've been seeing and meeting all of the fine people along the way.

Good luck in your travels and stay safe. You deserve this now......

Hey Mark, landed safe in Alicante with a few minutes to spare at the airport, and have just finished blitzing through your whole thread while darting outside a bit to try to acclimatize to the heat.

Really great to meet you, sorry I couldn't take you on the scenic tour to my place in person, but glad I had it to offer. Looks like you found everything you needed to get you down the road, maybe we'll get a chance to catch up again down the road.

cheers
mike

Hay Mark, I sent Mike some stickers awhile back and he said that he owed me a beer. So I hope you had at least two since I'm not making it out there to collect! Have fun and be safe, Craig & Natalie

Hey Craig, I was asking Mark if he knew you and yes I have been putting those stylie dirty finger decals in appropriate places including my pedally ones.

You're welcome anytime to collect, I'll even pay interest

Hey Mark,

Still enjoying your report more all the time. I just saw some fuel cans mounted to the back of a bike from GB you might be interested in. The Ride Report is Throttlemeister's 33 1/3 NCS + Cuba. The photo is on the 1st page about 2/3 of the way down. Shows a nice back view of the back of the bike with the cans mounted.

Take care Mark and have fun.

Bob
