Just discovered your report, Jamie, really enjoyed the read! I've done the cross-country drive many times (although never on a motorcycle) and re-lived the experiences through your photos. Excellent!

Great learning about Jack, what an interesting guy! I wonder if he's looking down and admiring my rig whenever I participate in the annual Victoria Day Parade here in Victoria?

He definitely would have appreciated it - his favourite bikes were Nortons, and english bikes in general - but he loved anything with an engine.

One day we have to do the cross-canada thing again. We're doing the east coast this summer, but I'd love to get enough time to go to both coasts in one trip - you really don't have any idea how big and amazing our country is until you've been across it on the ground.
