Henryville,PQ is a small town near lake champlain, a few kilometers away from the borders of Canada, Vermont and New York state. It's the gathering you've heard about from the french canadians at NEVA in the past. This years, it is early in the summer and will pretty much launch the motorcycle traveling seasons for us up north

Awesome event, I highly recommend it. Great group of riders, and lots of great food. I attended last year, and had a fantastic time. The motorcyclists who put this event on are very gracious. Can't wait

Just saw this

Sounds like fun. I need to be back for a meeting in NJ on June 17th, then I leave for the FODS rally in West Virginia early on June 18th. This looks like 8 hours one way, which is certainly not negative for me. Hmmm.

Bill,
If you need any info on this event, shoot me a p.m.
Also, if I can help in any way if you do attend, let me know. You would be coming up past me into Vermont, North and then over the border ( which means passport). The event is only 1/2 hour over the Vt. border, and 1 hour southeast of Montreal.

Bill,
Glad to see your in. Great people, great food, great time.
Last year, the weather was rainy, and the turnout was not as in prior years( so I am told). This year, this event has been moved up to June, and I believe the turnout will be BIG. For me, the ride to Quebec is awesome.

So you'll probably go up rt#9 Syd? I'll go right up through the islands on RT#2 once I get to Burlington. I might take 100 to 125 through Rochester and Middlebury gaps. That's some nice riding. Endless possibilities. It's always about the journey.

Last year, I went up to Montreal on Friday, met up with DannyC( who was very gracious). Got up Saturday a.m., met Bumper(Francois), and rode down together to Henryville. Northern Vermont is beautiful and desolate. Don't forget to bring your passport or enhanced drivers license.i am sure we will post prior to going.

This is a great meet up. Like Nic said we get to meet most of the V-Strommers in Quebec at this event plus lots of other riders. There are the flea market tables and the test rides to do. Thierry and his family put on a great event. Not only is this a great place to see old friends, but I also like to go for the fresh lamb chops hot off the BBQ.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
