The Rock
Newfoundland & Nova Scotia
5,013 Miles

It had been four years since we had taken a long street ride.  We had gone to the southeast in 2002, trailered to Wyoming in 2003, and taken dual-sport bikes back out to Wyoming in 2004.  We dusted off an old plan to ride to the land of the Vikings affectionately known as "The Rock".  We had both purchased BMW R1150RTs earlier in the year so we were looking forward to see how the new bikes would function.  We had planned to take two ferry trips to get to our destination in Newfoundland.  After researching and discovering the cost of the Bar Harbor to Yarmouth NS leg we decided to take the land route.  It was an easy decision since we wanted to put as many miles on the clock as possible.
