Van Isle ADV rider sign in...
 
So... I am curious to see how many of us ADV riders are here on Vancouver Island.. I know that a few of us have met (usually on the mainland like the BTR etc..) I thought it would be cool to start a thread on it.
Maybe there is a Van Isle ADV ride to be organized in the future!:clap

I am up Qualicum Beach area.

I don't live on the Island but close enough to be counted as I do most my riding there... I'm towards the top end about a 25 min ferry ride from Port Mcneill...

Probably most of them. OP might be better off to join DSBC (as well), rather than re-invent the wheel here. :D

Sointula...

We have about 10 up this way that I ride with, most are DSBCers...

Naw... There's lots of us older fellows who don't do the fancy dirt biking that seems to be the focus of the DSBC forum. Many of us only ride on the pavement (though I do both). I go there just to get a good read on what is happening over there - it seems to be a healthy group of guys who habitate the whole length of the Island. I have to say, one of the best times I've had of late was going to the Qualicum Bay campout a few years ago and hanging with the Island boys. They had a nice welcoming lay back feel about them. Most of my old cronies are over there and are starting to step back into the riding world, after raising their kids. I can hardly wait to slide back into that scene.

I was right! Not a bad guess, eh? So we have that many guys up at the North Island? And hardly anyone lives there.... Holy shit, I'm starting to get excited. I'm aiming for Courtenay or the area around it when I make the move. The Beemer is primed and ready to go.

Are you talking about street bikes that can ride on gravel like the big GS and V Stroms?

I shall back away with shame then with my meagre 650 and will only raise my head again when I grow up and get a big bike to join your 'bigger dualsport' club :rofl
