I had just thrown a rear tyre on the DR and decided to go for quick evening drive down town Halifax. On Lower Water St I see a Multistrada up on the sidewalk & a guy taking pictures of the old style signs along the old Kieth's brewery property. I am thinking about replacing my St2 with a multi .... so I stop to have a look at the bike (not a lot of multis around here). The bike is covered in bugs & has a huge fuel cell on the rack...... it turns out the guy is Gary Eagan (he of long distance record setting rides) and he has just finished a ride from Vancouver to Halifax in a wee bit over 51 hours ...... its 6120km from here to there ..... do the math ...... respect! We chat & he is easy to talk to .... and he has a DR at home!
