My New Hero, Charlie Waddell from Kingston, ON

I promise never to complain about seat comfort, ergonomics, heated grips or seats, GPS, ABS, suspension set up etc etc. That's because I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie Waddell, from Kingston, ON; age 70+.

I met Charlie on a recent trip to Newfoundland and Labrador. He was in the middle of a 4,000+ mile ramble on his (get this) 250 cc. Hyosung cruiser. We met him on the supply boat run up to Blanc Sablon from Natashquan, saw him again on the road near Gros Morne NP, and later in Twillingate, and finally when he spent the night of his ride at our house. He's a great guy and a great example for all of us - just get out and ride.

Here's a picture of Charlie (left) and my friend Mike, waiting to load the bikes on the Nordik Express at 6:00 AM in Natashquan, Quebec
