East Coast Photo Files

Trip Day 1 - June 9, 2014

 ["At 7:15 a.m. I finished loading the bike. I felt ready"]

From London to Kingston, Ontario

I'm a trigger-happy kind of guy when travelling - thus the many photos from an exciting, eventful trip - especially when motorcycling.

Scenes seem larger than life, more vivid. Smells from land and sea fill the air, sounds from the engine and tires on the road surround the rider and make the journey a living thing.

["A pause at the roadside at 2 p.m., south of Peterborough"]

There are many lures and labours associated with motorcycle travel - 4,800 kilometres this time 'round -  respectively indescribable at times and always necessary. One's mind fills with the rare experience while the muscles tire. Sleep at bedtime always comes easy. Wake up time always early.

["No rain for me in those dark skies"]

Good to go. Good to return in one piece.
