Long Ride Home

I picked up my 2016 r1200gs on Monday in montreal. A member from Montreal ( Brent) was as kind to meet me at dealership and guide me out of the heaviest traffic areas of montreal! I arrived home in St. John's NL this morning after three days riding and three nights (one night on the ferry crossing from NOva Scotia to Newfoundland). I had my first service in Moncton, New Brunswick at just over 1000km. 2400 km for the entire ride. It was my first time outside province on bike and first time on r1200gs. Weather sucked. Drizzly and between 5 - 10 celcius most days! Five stars for my heated vest (tourmaster synergy 2.0)! All in all, a satisfying three days! Bike is awesome!

A lot of Aussies found it cheaper to go to Munich, buy the bike and ride it home, than get it off the shop floor here. I wish I was one of those guys...
