Victoria Day weekend ' 07: the Gaspé, the Maritimes and Maine

On a long weekend at the end of May, Peter and I made a ~3400km loop of the Gaspé Peninsula, the Canadian Maritimes and returned to Montreal/Ottawa via Maine. Our plan to find dirt in the private forests of northern Maine was thwarted (only four wheeled vehicels allowed), but we still had a great time. I celebrated my 31st birthday at a campground in Quebec just on the southern border with Maine. The other noteworthy point of the trip were (a) continuous mechanical issues with one or both KLRs throughout the trip and (b) the amazing self-regeneration abilities of said KLRs.

Photos and explanations of key moments are available here. Our ~3,500km route (Ottawa to Ottawa) is here.
