I have sorted through ~2k pictures and will be posting them in 3-4 pages. There were a LOT of pictures taken by everyone so there is going to be a bunch of pictures that we all took of the same thing.

First, a big thanks to the organizers and the host that put this all together in beautiful New Brunswick.

MEM, ring leader, organizer, host and ride leader -- how could we go wrong!
Posted Image

The following pictures are from Monday where a small group of Rally Riders rode south to meet them damn Yankees riding up from the US.

Our first stop was a tribute to Don Messer and his fiddle.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Lupines were in bloom everywhere we went, very pretty.
Posted Image

Next stop was the Chocolate Museum for some tasty treats.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

This safe is behind the cash register, it is where they store their special chocolate products.
Posted Image

While MEM was looking for Fred W and his group to arrive they sneaked in behind her. (L - R Joann, Fred W and Mary Ellen MEM)
Posted Image


Next we were off for some of the Best Seafood Ever™, a reoccurring theme during our rides.

These are GREAT Alan Helen ;) I'm in St Andrews 2 or 3 times every summer and don't notice the things a 'fresh eye' does!

Thank you for posting. I'm looking forward to more of them.

ps - when you come to the Monday evening pics, remember: "What happens at CFR, stays at CFR" :P

No worries, the Waitress brought out an auxiliary serving table for Seth and I to eat off of.

The food in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick was so phenomenal. Incredibly fresh seafood!

When we ride together all the moving pixs are Helen's and most of the stopped pixs are mine. Except when Helen thinks that I've had enough single malt scotch that I can't shoot pixs no more ;) I perform all post picture processing to let the shots be all they can be. BUT, what happens at CFR -- will be part of my next release of pixs :)

Well congrats on having a big crap, you musta've given birth to a another bastage step-child :)

WOOT! Two for one!

A little explanation is in order. CFR last year in Mont Tremblant. In the wee hours of morning out in the parking lot, Sharon, Charlie, MEM, Christie, Ray, Ian and myself are standing around making far to much noise. Charlie is standing between Sharon and MEM.. Both are wound up like energizer bunnies talking a mile a minute about different things.. AT Charlie. No shit, they sounded like geese.

With the most perfect timing, Charlie says "I think I've lost weight!"

You had to be there for it, but the really hilarious bit was that that both of them shut up while thier brains did a hard reset.

Doesn't surprise me Charlie doesn't remember though, Christie's special blend was having it's affects. :D

Surprisingly, we were all up early on Tuesday morning for a ride to Hopewell Rocks, in the past casually known as the Flower Pots. This was the longer of the rides we were to enjoy. The scenery was perfect, my pillion says the roads were not so perfect :ph34r:

The riders stage, get instructions and are assigned to one of the three ride leaders to keep group size manageable.
Posted Image

Ride leader Mark in silver/black and Jim in red/black leathers on a spiffy BMW that was an honorary FJR for CFR. L-R Greg GDSfjr03, Shakin Ian, Mark, John d John, Jim, Polarize Ray,
Posted Image

Ride leader MEM, outstanding in her field.
Posted Image

We are off. Newest to be assimilated into the FJR world is Joe in the black half helmet.
Posted Image

Bridges and water are reoccurring themes on every ride. The rivers were up quite a bit flooding the areas around their banks.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Aldog and Amanda all smiles at a ride organization stop.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

First scenic stop with a panoramic view. Mass quantities of group, motorcycle and ocean pictures were taken.
Posted Image

Posted Image

The Bay of Fundy tides average 11 ft to 23 ft, though places can have tides as much as 55 ft. These boats are sitting on cradles.
Posted Image

We saw many different types of flowers but they were all some shade of yellow except for the purple and pink lupines. Lots of fields were a solid carpet of yellow.
Posted Image

Between these two signs is the Vanishing Point.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Next scenic stop. Soft asphalt and gravity overcame a German side stand without a WinPro™ foot. While the result was just cosmetic, it is very expensive cosmetics.
Posted Image

The main attraction of the day was the Hopewell Rocks. The tides have carved the cliffs into free standing rock pillars that average 36 ft to 46 ft tall.

At low tide it has a look that reminds me of the Easter Island statues. At mid tide the rocks remind me of YES Tales From Topographic Oceans album cover.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

When the tide starts to come in people become inspired to climb this steep stair case.
Posted Image

After eating lunch at the Best Seafood Restaurant in the world (again) the groups headed home. The sometimes choppy roads didn't agree with my pillion at all so we split off and wandered home at our own pace. Yet another bridge.
