Remember, bad is a behaviour.... Just have to do it well!
Oh, I soooooo look forward to meeting YOU...lol
I see ADv bikes passing through Saint John every summer. Look me up!! Maybe we can
I'm a wet coaster on a DR650 riding a few days in Nova Scotia and need to do a little maintenance. Can anyone suggest a quality shop in NS to take the bike to? Pref Suzuki where they'll have parts (brake pads mostly). I"m in North Sidney this morning and headed up the Cabot Trail today. I was thinking Halifax at the end of the week.
Both of these guys are in Halifax (Dartmouth side of harbour). I would call ahead to make sure they have the parts and if they don't can order them in. Most Halifax dealers don't stock even common parts although they can get them in 2 days usually.

RPM Cycle by a mile!
The owner, Barry is a Dual Sport rider and a member of Dualsport.ca - the unofficial official dual sport group.
They're good, have good prices and are definitely worth the stop.
Left Moncton this morning with Tatamagouche as a destination. Not sure why, just wanted to ride out that way. I gotta say it was a very nice solo run to clear the mind and visit some new places. Little town of Wallace is a gem!
Saw these fine folks off about an hour ago.
Last seen heading north-ish in typical Maritime sunshine, i.e. fog and drizzle. Lee, Brian and John, come back any time.
Thanks south for opening your home to not one, but THREE weary travellers...unfortunately, we are racing heavy weather today, and are therefore "slabbing it"...but Craig, please rest assured that my next trip through NB will be a leisurely one that allows for lots of picturesque and backroad riding....
Greetings, just re-relocated back to Halifax after a 6 year absence in other parts of the country. I have with me my 1973 BMW /5 and 2008 KTM 690. I suppose I need to have these beasts safetied, correct? Given the recent conversation about local dealer recommends, should I assume that RPM is a go-to, or is there another or better option to satisfy the provincial gov't tax grab?
Thanks in advance. Looking forward to finding some other ADV'ers in the 'hood.
RPM was my go to shop when I lived in NS 2 Years ago, especially for safety! Drove 2 1/2 hrs to get my GasGas EC300 checked.
Stopped in today, and true to the press, good bunch 'o guys. That being said, I have to re-install my chain guard and put some damn licence plate light on in the next 10 days before I go back for a re-certification. The bike was fine in Ontario
Borrow a guard if you can from someone local on dualsport (dot) ca then take it off once passed.
I have spent the last day and a half trying to put down some words about my Maritime Meandering 2013 Tour - but ended up with something that is not quite a ride report...
Anyway, if you are interested, here is the link:
I had a great time, and will be cross-posting this one to both the Winnipeg/Surrounding Area and the Northern Rider forums, as I want the folks I met to know how much their help was appreciated....
Anyone heading to Digby this weekend?
I had thought about going today, however the Severe Thunderstorms have me hiding under the bed with the cat. He won't share the toys.
I live in Bridgetown NS, joined the forum maybe last month. I am getting a Honda C70 Passport on the road. I know its not a true dual sport or adventure bike but it does quite well on mild trails, and it was free which helps.
Just did some carb work on it today and took it on a short trip towards bridgewater from nictaux on the old rail line, and down some of the side trails.
Are there any planned trips happening next summer looking for riders? I'm looking for some excitement, preferrably in the 7-10 day timeframe.
I'd be running a modded KLR650 and have plenty experience in the dirt. I've just never done anything more than local and would like to get out and see a bit of the Maritimes. I've got a bit of experience doing long haul riding on street bikes (PEI, CBI, NB) but nothing on the KLR.
Should I just plan something myself? Any recommendations? Maybe the stereotypical Trans-Lab or the Rock?
Jacob, hook up with me....I am a Halifax newbie with an XR650L in full dirt road-camping trim....
Newbie to Halifax, not bikes.......
Are you the tan KLR guy?
