Planning this 14-to-17-day trip for summer '08 and thought I'd solicit some suggestions on travel routes, destinations, dining, and the best time of year weather-wise. Edit: Found this thread specific to NS, which I'll watch, so from here on I guess I'm looking for tips on routes and destinations to get to NS from MI... the other thread seems to cover what to look forward to when we get there. I'll be on a DL1000 and my wife on an F650GS. We'll probably spend most of our time on pavement, but would enjoy some dirt as well (though nothing too technical; we're still noobs in dirt). We'll likely jump straight into Canada from Michigan and stay in Canada so we don't have to mess with border crossings more than once each direction. Loop around Maine through New Brunswick and down into Nova Scotia. We might bring camping gear in case we're compelled to spend a night under the sky, but we'll likely spend most evenings in a motel or B&B... preferably one with a hot tub. Only been to Toronto, so we don't have much knowledge of the roads and sights that lay east. Any recommedations on anything between Michigan and Nova Scotia would be appreciated. Cheers!
