Hello Folks, Just back from a whirlwind tour of the Trans-Labrador Highway on my 1972 Guzzi Eldorado. Route: Inverary, near Kingston, Ontario - Baie Comeau PQ - Manic 5 - Labrador City - Happy Valley / Goose Bay - Blanc Sablon - ferry to Newfoundland - coast road to Port aux Basques - ferry to Sydney, Nova Scotia - home. Total distance about 5500 kms in 6 days. The Trans-Lab includes about 1000 kilometres of gravel road - some fresh, like riding on ball bearings, some rutted and washboardy - but nothing a proper bike can't handle. The Eldorado ran flawlessly (ignoring generator mount problems - fixed with a couple of bungees). On the last day I rode from the ferry dock in Sydney, Nova Scotia to home (Inverary, Ontario) (1749 kms or 1087 miles) non-stop. Left NS at 2.30 AM, home at 1:30AM. Not bad for a 39 year old bike and its geriatric rider! There are a couple of short videos at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNIJHLCLJsA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1vH1o3mPm4 I'll be posting more as I do them. Nick (ps The GS is a nice bike - no disrespect intended. Just not necessary).
