    Loving your RR brand new to the site and this is my first post if that means anything

    My wife will be taking her safety course next month and we are hoping to spend our anniversary next summer riding from southern Ontario to Halifax and then home again. She's never ridden anything 2 wheeled that didn't have pedals (She just bought an 09 ninja 250) so her safety is a huge concern of mine so i can only guess how u felt when u turned around to find she put it down.

    Have a great ride and will be following along from my comfy chair

    P.S. Tell your wife she is a gorgeous woman and happy birthday, your a lucky guy to have her and love the tatts my wife has a few big ones

    You two are sure having a lot of fun and enjoying this special first of a kind of a trip for the two of you.

    Congrats to all the "goals" you have achieved on this trip and may I add, that pic of Brandi's bike with all the "mud/gumbo" would pass for a similar shot after completing the haul road to Prudhoe Bay.

    Thanks for sharing. I will try to share the special 'toast' Vermin and I had on the pack trip to all those that help return CACK to the lower 48, one being you two.

    Well I am glad your road trip was a success. Kelly, I think your wife is pretty spectacular for wanting to go on a trip like that with such high km/day rides (esp. with the previously-broken back!!!)

    Brandi, YOU ROCK! You are one tough chick!

    Happy Birthday--glad you had a nice trip!

    Thanks for sharing, ~MAG

    Living out on the other coast (Halifax), I've always wanted to ride the Rockies and yes even the Prairie - someday! I hope you know how fortunate you are GISdood (I think you do) as my wife won't go near my DR 650 or the Ninja 1000. I'm sure it's cliche to you by now, but as I was reading, in my mind was playing this song:

    If you ever go Coast to Coast you got a garage in Halifax!

    Cheers,
    Martin
