After 5 great months in North America our time has unfortunately come to an end and we must park the motorcycle and return to Santiago (for a short while anyway).
Thanks for sharing our journey with us and we’ll see you all again very soon!

After riding around Newfoundland for the past two weeks, and upon our return to Nova Scotia, it suddenly dawned on us that we have just one week and a day remaining before we fly out of New York!
Some would say that after nearly 5 months we should be ready, but how far that is from the truth you could never imagine.

These two places, especially Newfoundland, are absolutely breathtaking!
The scenery is rugged and unspoilt, the weather unpredictable and the people unique. Even the Newfoundland dialect resembles the Irish more than it does Canadian. This is certainly a place to be visited more than just once.

After spending a great few weeks in French Canada, we have now re-entered the English world upon entering the province of New Brunswick (which is very bilingual actually). Also managed to catch up with an old work colleague and friend at the Moncton airport.
Well, we only have a little over 3 weeks left of this journey before we fly back to Santiago after 4 1/2 months on the road. Are we ready you may ask? Will let you know in our last blog for the season!

After riding 6,000 km or so from West to East, we’ve just entered French Canadian territory which has a unique feeling, culture and landscape all of its own.

You can feel it in the air. The new season is upon us with mornings being fresher and rain showers more frequent.

We were luckily to pull into Argyll Motor Sports (BMW Dealer) in Edmonton to get the balance shaft seal replaced which started leaking while we were on the Dempster Hwy. The service guys jumped right onto the job and even helped us arrange a rental car for a few days and locate a camp ground close by.
Were glad to be back on the road!

After returning from the top of the world in Alaska, we returned and rode to the very north of Canada on the famous Dempster Hwy.

After 8 months of wonderful travel (combined time) we’ve finally made it to the top of the world!
We had a great run from northern USA into Canada. Even made a premature visit to Alaska via the tiny town of Hyder which can only be reached from the Canadian border town of Stewart or by sea plane.
