Which trip would you choose?
« on: January 13, 2018, 06:04:28 PM »
I'm planning a month long trip this summer.  Torn between touring the Pacific NW or Nova Scotia.  Never been to either one.  Time and distance are not a factor.  Which would you choose if you could only choose/recommend one?

Hey  I do not believe you will be disappointed either direction.
 I have also been dreaming of a trip to Canadas Atlantic Coast
    Ride the Cabot Trail and my Newfie buddie at work Is telling me a few other incredible destinations.

I would love to swim in the Pacific one day.  Although its a LONG Distance For Me.  I will not be able to get enough time off work.

Captain Adventure

If you go on the Versys 650 Forum - see link below - you will meet Uralrob who lives in Nova Scotia and regularly rides to PNW and Alaska as well as knowing his (large) bit of Canada like the back of his hand and Gustavo who lives in PNW and has been found riding in Nova Scotia and Mexico.  They are both splendid guys who will happily share information with you.

Problem is - they will  probably tell you to go to both PNW and Nova Scotia which will not really answer your question 😀 - so you might end up planning two trips.

Feel free to tell them I gave you their names.

Wish you good planning and even better riding.

Nova Scotia. Mostly because of the great roads from Pittsburgh to Nova Scotia. Endless mountains of PA, Adirondacks of NY, Vermont, so much fun.

Both are beautiful and both are on my bucket list to visit but one is small, and one is not. What is it you want out of the trip, that will tell you where yo need to go to get it. My plan is for the Pyrenees in June.

Paul, my experience of the Pyrenees in June has been very often scorcio, so make sure you have some well vented kit, May is my favourite time.
