Nick Adams, Writer & Moto Guzzi Rider: Canadian Travelogs.

A multi-part adventure through northern Quebec, Labrador and Newfoundland, riding my geriatric Moto Guzzi. She can be a cantankerous beast but, so far at least, she has always managed to get me home. Will the same be true this time? How will she handle the hundreds of kilometres of unpaved gravel road. And perhaps more importantly, how will her even older rider fare.
