So I know its late in the year for Canadians to start out on a motorcycle trip, but I'm off tomorrow on the first leg of a trip to Nashville, Tennessee to visit my daughter and husband as they move into a new house.
I'm ferrying my son in law's Triumph Tiger 1050 which he had left here when moving south last summer.
He intended to come back for it before now, but got busy at work and just can't get the time.
My destination tomorrow night is Ottawa, Ontario where I will visit another daughter and husband as well as my sister.
My route tomorrow takes me down through the back roads of Maine and the Eastern Townships of Quebec through Montreal and on to Ottawa.
The roads are great for a motorcycle, and I expect the leaves will be quite colorful as well. The Carabassett Valley should be spectacular, and I know the road will be fun. I'll stay in Ottawa for a day or so and then head off through Detroit and points south. I figure 2 days out of Ottawa will do it.
My only concern will be the morning temperatures. It will be crisp for sure, but should be well above freezing and will warm up nicely as the day wears on. I'll be wearing layers under the Aerostich Suit so should be reasonably comfortable.

Sounds like a great trip, Jim. Frost coming tonight, so bundle up for the early hours. Weather looks good. Nothing like a solo trip to clear the mind. Travel safe.

Load my number into your phone. Should you have issues on this end, I'm a lot closer to Nashville than most of the people you know. ;)

I'm envious of your trip Duckster. Ride Safe and have a Great, Piece of Mind, Mini Vacation. Just Watch out for all of those Loose Nuts, behind the Steering Wheels.
