Trip to Newfoundland this summer.

Heading to the Rock this summer from Calgary, have done the Cabot Trail, PEI but never Newfoundland. Going over using the North Sydney Ferry crossing and going to make our way to Fortune so we can take the ferry across to St Pierre. So a question has anyone parked their bike in the multi day lot they have? It appears there is shuttle to get to the parking when you check in for the Ferry? How safe is it to leave your bike for a couple of days if we stay in St Pierre?


Thanks
Randy

Hi Randy - I don't have the answer but am very curious as I am looking at doing the same in 2020 - 2019 is Cape Breton and Nova Scotia again for me


Cheers David

I lived in Nova Scotia for almost 6 years. I've never done it but have many friends that have, no issues with parking while you're off to visit St Pierre/Miquelon. As you know, everyone visiting there has to leave there vehicles on the mainland.

Thanks Guys


Going to stay at a local B&B and they have offered to drive us to the ferry and pick us up while our bikes stay secured in his garage! Love the eastern hospitality.

We are going to the BMW MOA Getaway Rally in PA this July and so should be going across on the ferry around mid July.

Thanks!

No painting was required. This is the original OEM “Sakhir Orange” (Red) colour for the 2015 GTS.
