    I actually can't think of anything I was missing. I had spent a while preparing and making sure I would have all the tools I needed.

    One thing I would have liked are those disposable paper funnels. I couldn't find a pack of them so I just bought a cheap plastic one from Walmart. I didn't really have anywhere to store it so it just sat on the outside but when I had to use it, it took forever to clean.

    Other then that the wolfman duffle is pretty big and held all my stuff nicely. I could have opted for a smaller size even.

    Having ridden across country through the prairie lands myself, I can feel your pain. Yet, I still reflect on the whole experience as a plus and suppose you do in some way. You'll discover that feeling later. However, I'm sure the tree's were a welcome sight! One good thing you did was take your time. May not have felt like it, but at least you didn't speed (ha ha) through all the pretty parts of the ride. Seems as though you were prepared as one can be without over doing it! Beautiful photo's, thanks for sharing.

    Ride well done!

    Great trip and ride report. That was myself Dubster and my brother-in -law (T-Bob) that the guy riding the Honda 650 met up with in Newfoundland. His name is actually Lance and he is from Middle Musquodobit here in Nova Scotia not far from where I live.
    It's amazing the thrashing these little machines will take day after day and keep on trucking.
    I only overtook one vehicle on our trip but I spanked a big heavy cruiser on a section of the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton.
    When I get the time I will post some pictures of our ride. Newfoundland is an amazing part of Canada.

    Stopped roughly every 120km for gas. So quite a few. Maybe 4-5 a day.

    I should have kept track of how much gas I used but I didn't. I know it ran me about $25 per day.

    Average speed I'd say was 85km/h. Could have gone a bit faster but I didn't want to strain the engine as I was doing this pace the while day.

    And my chain was a stock non o-ring chain. The previous owner had let it rust out at some point. I cleaned it up well but of still wore out quickly.

    I'm glad I have a new o-ring chain on there now.
