Home Again in Kitchener

 The two pictures are both from the furthest east point on the trip, at Cape Spear.  We arrived back home in Kitchener on Monday, August 18th.  I was not able to get around to finishing up the blog because I had a few things with higher priority.

The Burgman finished the trip with the usual excellent fuel economy, 3.4 litres per 100 km.  But on this trip, I was worried about the Burgman much more than on the last trip. After the trip out west, we needed to replace the rear drive bearings on the Burgman, which was one reason for concern on the eastern trip where the roads were rougher.  Also, the speed limits in the maritimes are sometimes very high considering the condition of the roads.  On the trip west, we rarely had cars and trucks following us trying to get by.  But this year, it seemed like there was always traffic trying to pass us.

  1. Welcome back to Waterloo County!

    Had not been keeping up with your blog day by day, but enjoyed reading the entire series just now as a travelogue :-)

    I had been curious about how the Burgman would hold, up given your concerns, and how your Old Age Pensioner body would hold up, as well ... LOL!

    Good to hear that both came through with flying colours.

    And congratulations on completing your Canada coast-to-coast (-to-coast)!

    Looking forward to seeing you at the next board meeting :-)
