2012 Fall Ride

Fall is here, the leaves have turned colors and soon it will be time to put my motorcycles away for the winter.  Today, my friend Luc and I hit the road for a fall ride through the Grand Lake area and the Miramichi River Valley.  The colors were spectacular and the weather was good (cold weather riding gear required). The 260km loop was just right for this time of year.

A highlight of today's ride was a stop along the Miramichi River at the McNamee-Priceville Footbridge.

Luc had never been to the renowned Miramichi River footbridge, so we took a trek across the bridge.

I hope that I can get another ride or two in before I put the motorcycles away for the winter, but that will depend on the weather.  With my work schedule, my riding is pretty much restricted to weekends...keeping my fingers crossed!

Keep your right hand cranked and ride safe!


  1. Gidday, looks a treat that countryside, love the colours..... Very nice

  2. Glad you got out on Sunday. I rode with one friend on Monday (Columbus Day) and it was a raw start to the day. Assuming the weather forecast was correct, I removed my rain gear from my saddlebags, to make a little more room. Well, we lucked out on the rain, but it looked pretty threatening! I should have worn glove liners under my leather gloves. Cold hands were warmed by hot coffee, when we stopped for lunch. After we warmed up, the sun eventually poked out and we headed for home. Not too many good days left, I fear. Let's talk about a ride plan for 2013. Where are ya headed?
