Le Musée de la Moto de Saint-Jean-port-joli

Here's a submission from one of my fellow Norton owners Jean:

"You can add Le Musée de la Moto de Saint-Jean-port-joli to your list of museums.  The region is something to see, nice roads with spectacular views of the Saint Lawrence.  A stop at La Roche à Veillon in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli for a typical Québecois mea lis a must.  On the way to Gaspé, another well worth it stop is at le Bistro de la Mer in Kamouraska (corner of route 132 and route de Kamouraska) where they have the best lobster bisque I have ever tasted, it goes very well with a smoked salmon or shrimp sandwich.  Route 132 from Rimouski to Gaspé is amongst the best motorcycle roads in the world, lots of twisties, up and downs right next to the Saint Lawrence river which is more like a sea than a river since the other side is a good 30 Km away.  Not motorcycle related but interesting for gearheads is the Bombardier Museum in Valcourt."

And if you're in Montreal be sure to check out Chien Rose and Le 132-Bar Vintage.

From the eating suggestions alone I want to go! And to add to that the museums? "I'm packing my bags honey, I'll be back in a few weeks!"
