    I feel their pain, never been a fan of obnoxiously loud motorcycles on the street. Not that I think banning motorcycles is a good answer, but maybe enforcing noise laws would have been a better option.

    The last paragraph is a real gem;

    "Still, summer will be different on the Cabot Trail without the thunder of motorcycles rolling through the hills. Some Nova Scotia motorcycle clubs have talked about “rolling protests,” riding motorcycles through the Trail at slow speed to show their unhappiness with the policy. However, those plans were abandoned when some members pointed out that wouldn’t be any different from their normal riding style."

    RV stuck behind slow moving motorcycles? Yeah, um, April 1 would be my guess.

    The Death Star with a potent driver could probably smoke some accountants wearing Sons of Anarchy vests and Crocs on their Hardleys.

    But most RVs are driven by people who shouldn't be allowed a license to drive a golf cart much less a rolling housing project.

    The roads up that way are fantastic. We camped up there driving a Mini Cooper, which in retrospect, was retarded, save for the awesome roads.

    Some years ago, there was an effort to put on a North American TT up that way. Coming down route 2 on the Bay of Funday, it would have been a fitting place.

    Not all of them to be fair, but there’s a lot of truth in it. I’ve had to pass Harleys (and trikes) descending on my road bike because they just park it in every corner, but I’ve seen some good riders on them too. Difference between them and shitty sportbike riders is the squids usually park their bikes at the bottom of the canyon instead of mid corner. :D

    A decade or so back, they were very close to having an official TT motorcycle race on the Cabot trail. TT riders were there doing publicity and checking out the future course, it was approved by the IOM government as "official", materials were printed, etc. etc. It almost happened. Not an expert on Great White North politics, but it was good to go at the equivalent of the "state" level (provincial?), but was killed at the "federal" (national?) level.
