Dear TW Buddies,

I just joined this site because I found it while searching google to see if anyone had ridden thier Tdub across the trans Labrador highway yet. A discussion started by a guy named Mike popped up on your site. He was trying to get a group together to ride Nfld and Lab this past June. Anyone know if they ever did it? I left our farm in Maine on August first and got back Sept 14th I think. Did the full loop- Maine, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, East end of Newfoundland across to western tip, whole trans Labrador highway, down through Quebec and home. It was freaking awesome! My buddy here expanded my gas tank and I had one of those kolpin cans screwed down onto my rear rack. Had to add a soda bottle to the gas storage for one run. Met some guys on 650 bmws that wished they had a bike like our beloved tws- there was a foot and a half of live gravel in places that scared the living daylights out of me. I highly recommend this ride, so let me know if you want hints in planning it, people to visit etc.

Love, Molly

We followed Molly's quest closely while she was here and several threads on www.ridetherock.com include photos. Here are links to a few.

Do you still have that lovely expanded tank, or did the bad guys get it?
