BMW Riders of Southern Maine. This Facebook page has been created a communication forum for the motorcycle enthusiasts of Southern Maine and past and current members of BMWRSM.
Riders of Southern Maine welcomes membership from riders of all brands of motorcycles from Maine, New England, and elsewhere. We have members from all over New England, Canada, and as far away as North Carolina. We're motorcycle enthusiasts first, with a rider mix of BMW, Suzuki, Ducati, Ural, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Harley, and many more...
Annually in May, we host a weekend rally (DownEast Rally) at Hermit Island Campground, then rides, trips, and events throughout the riding season. We meet the first Saturday of each month at a restaurant for coffee, breakfast and our club meeting. Members, friends, and guests are all welcome.

If you are attending the Rally and would like to join a group for a tour of the museum, "LIKE" this post and I will try to set something up for the group if there is enough interest.

Lots of places for good seafood in Cape Breton. If camping the KOA campground outside Baddeck is a good spot. Restaurants down the road from it. 1 (2 months ago)Chuck Ronson:

We live in China - we took the CAT last June from Portland to Yarmouth - highly recommended. What a great start to our trip. Cabot Trail for sure, also enjoyed some music at www.celticmusiccentre.com. Our route included Liverpool, Broad Cove, Bridgewater, Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove, South Shore, Antigonish, Baddeck, Cabot Trail, Cheticamp, Pictou. People were friendly, and the riding was great. Have a great trip! 1 (2 months ago)John Curtis:
