welcome to bf!
brings back found memories when i solo-toured (self/contained) all of NS in 1985. from yarmouth on east coast to Halifax (saw "men w/out hats" 80's band there, disconnected the microphone while they were singing 'safety dance' (i regress!). then went inland to the Bay of Fundy up clock-wise around Cape Breton. on the way down from cape breton, i wiped out on road shoulder (headed to Alexander Grahm Bell's house) and got a ride to Sydney to get to a bike shop (needed to re-build rear wheel, was wasted).
Went back inland to the bay of fundy, to yarmouth. this was a figure-8 design. i would love to ride this again, but realize you can't go back, life's only forward ....
welcome again (thanks for the key for recall), and fire that bike up (use it)!
