On the darkside here. Got my white SM last summer.

Good rides:

  • Waverley road
  • St. Margarets Bay Rd to Queensland
  • Lawrence down road to Porters lake
  • Beaverbank road (although it's a little rough at times)

We live in a great place with lots of coastal roads. Love the fresh smell of the ocean when cruising, especially on those hot days you can get a nice breeze.

The best advice I or anyone could ever give is to ride within your ability. Don't feel the need to push it in order to keep up with people you're riding with. You want to live to ride another day. (Not to mention you don't want to lose your license). Some guys out there are absolutely nuts.

Wearing a ballistic or leather jacket is highly recommended. I know people ride with t-shirts, hoodies or whatever, but really... get some protection.

If you haven't done the course, I'd recommend it (http://www.safetyservicesns.ca). It's about $450 for a full weekend of riding around cones, doing emergency stops/avoidance etc. Also gives you a break on your insurance. Many experience riders will do this course every few years for a refresher.
