While at the Atlantic Powersport Motorcycle show last month in Halifax, we had the pleasure of meeting Jim Best and his dad. At 31 years of age and living with Cystic Fibrosis, Jim lives in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia and works as a Pharmacist.
Jim is gearing up for a large 6000+km adventure from Boston to San Francisco to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada and for medication awareness such as Kalydeco™. He will be travelling between June 17-July 10 2014. Jim has been riding since 2006, following in his father’s passion for being on two wheels, and wants to do something to give back to an organization that does so much in the way of fundraising, awareness and support of Cystic Fibrosis.
If you would like to follow Jim on his journey from June 17-July 10 2014; check out his facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/695043223892472
Donations are greatly appreciated as a sponsor of Jim at the Cystic Fibrosis website here:

Good Luck Everyone
Well this winter has been a mixed bag of tricks as far as the weather is concerned, but with this week’s milder temperatures I have seen a few brave souls out getting in a small ride.
Now whether it is worth the removal of salt once you’re back home…I guess depends on how much being “behind the bars” means to the individual rider. If you are braving the roads remember ice forms quickly and is found everywhere with all the rain that has been causing flooding. So be careful, if you go down and break a bone (or worse); you’ll be watching the rest of us in the spring, as we ride by.
We just returned home from a trip to the US and our motorcycle (and us) got in some great riding to places we had not explored before.
In June, our motorcycle re-visited Cape Spear, Newfoundland – the most northeasterly point of North America; and then on January 3rd, we rode our motorcycle to the famous buoy marker at Key West – proclaiming to be the most southeasterly point of the continental US and just 90 miles from Cuba. A great riding experience…and One more thing off the bucket list!
Now we are back home to work and reality and those warm breezes are just a memory, for the next few months.
BUT we can beat the winter blues in February with the Motorcycle & ATV Show in Moncton, NB; held at the Moncton Coliseum Complex from February 14-16th.
Beginning on Friday, Valentine’s Day – all ladies get in at half-price admission after 5pm – celebrating “She Rides Nite”. And one lucky lady will win a weekend getaway in Cape Breton. Thank you to the Days Inn of Sydney for providing a 2-Night Stay at their convenient downtown location. The winner will enjoy a complimentary Continental Breakfast each morning; Free WiFi; Free Parking and use of the Indoor Pool, Whirlpool, Sauna and Fitness Center during their stay. There is also a restaurant on-site offering delicious selections if you are tired after a day of riding the Cabot Trail.
Come by our booth #213, in Hall B, across from the Harley-Davidson & BMW displays and say hello – we have an exciting summer of Prize Giveaways planned across Atlantic Canada!
