Bik­ers in Canada

Motorcycle Sport & Leisure - - Long Ride -

One fea­ture of the trip that I’ve left to last is a com­ment on the spirit of bik­ing in Canada. One of the many delights was the feel­ing of bik­ing com­mu­nity on the roads over there. Ev­ery­one waves to ev­ery­one, and that in­cludes fab­u­lously at­tired mem­bers of the Har­ley tribe that look like they are straight out of Nashville to tourists on their mod­est CB500X’s. Bik­ers of all stripes wan­dered over at camps to have a nat­ter about us and our bikes, and sim­i­larly were open to a chat when I wan­dered over to ad­mire their Har­ley or In­dian or Tri­umph Rocket. I’m sure there are bike snobs in Canada that won’t be so friendly, but I didn’t meet any. The feel­ing of com­mu­nity on the trip is one of the things I have taken away as a last­ing and mov­ing mem­ory.
