    Todays ride was brought to you by Jason404, Gasburner, Teestrom and the letter K.
    As always, we start at Timmie's for coffee and a yarn.

    We decided to head toward the South Shore and Mahone Bay. First we did some slab but then we did the secondary roads.
    The leaves were out which made the day look fantastic.

    Heading into Mahone Bay,

    Every year there is a scarecrow festival with all sorts of scary looking creatures. Especially this one,

    WHAT'S IN THE BOX?

    I loved this one,

    and this one too,
    [​IMG]

    Here GB is saying, stop with the pictures and lets ride.
    [​IMG]

    So we rode, at 2 miles/hour. GB didn't stall, or anything. Nope. Didn't happen.
    [​IMG]

    We made it about 1 k when we pulled off again and this is what we see coming.
    A parade of Porsches. They all sounded really nice,
    [​IMG]

    Especially this Carrera,
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We had to wait for the paving crew and wondered what these guys made/hour, on a Sunday.
    [​IMG]

    OK, back on the road and some twisties,
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some little sideroad for a snack break,
    [​IMG]

    You don't have to go very far in Nova Scotia to see stuff like this,
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now we're at Crescent Beach. It's the only one in the province where you can legally ride or drive AFAIK.
    [​IMG]

    I was busy taking pix and didn't notice this. It could have been worse. I was parked right next to J's bike.

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down, Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    This is where GB got silly and decided to show off his riding skills for the camera,

    As Joey Lawrence would say, "woah"
    [​IMG]

    Why the sad face Stever?
    [​IMG]

    And then...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here are the boys watching GB wipe out,
    [​IMG]

    Ah what fun,
    [​IMG]

    Love this pic,
    [​IMG]

    It was time to go,
    [​IMG]

    I think Teestrom is practicing his squats,

    More splotches of colour,
    [​IMG]

    We had another great feed at Lane's
    [​IMG]

    We had the back deck to ourselves,
    [​IMG]

    The four horsemen?

    Once we left Liverpool it was smooth going up the #8.

    More colour,

    We weren't really sure where we were going but ended up just outside Annapolis Royal. From there we put on
    warmer clothes and hit the highway for home.

    I took out a few bugs,
