How fast the summer has gone! Now the school season has started and our evenings are getting shorter each day. But we still have lots of fabulous riding weather left and many events to participate in before we close out the season.

We’ve been busy uploading photos this week to our site, so if you attended the Dutch Mason Blues Festival, Shediac Motorcycle Rally and/or the Digby Wharf Rat Rally last weekend; visit here and maybe we caught you on camera. http://motorcycletourguidens.smugmug.com/2013RalliesandEvents
