    Really great ride report Marc! I've been following it from the beginning, and have greatly enjoyed your writing and photos. It's been very inspiring, and is something that I hope to do one day myself.

    Thanks for the great report. Really enjoyed following you on your trip. Love your photos. Feel like I want to buy you a beer if you ever find yourself in Northern California.
    One question about that strapping of your bike to the skid for shipment. Is that plastic or steel strapping ?
    Till next time.

    Merci monsieur! Pas évident de se retrouver dans notre Québec un peu gris mais ça fait quand même du bien d'être à la maison!

    Hi! Thanks a lot! I'll take you up on that beer one day for sure. I love this place so much. The strapping was made of thin metal. It was very solid although the bike was not very stable when received in Montreal, but no damage (appart from the battle scratches from the trip!).

    Regards!

    Marc, I really enjoyed your ride report. I discovered it a few days ago, and I just finished reading it. A great adventure. Merçi.

    Terrific RR Marc. I've got a similar trip planned for next year. Similar age / milestone as well.
    Your experience has served to further solidify my goal. Thanks!

    I hope you can make it happen. And from Calgary, you'll be able to drive south towards the coast, it'll be incredible! Happy to see it helped and don't hesitate if you have questions!

    Thanks!
