Drew,
Your ride looks very cool. Wish I could go. I recognize several names on the roster.
The route looks very similar to the last BC ride we did in 2008.

You'll have to let us know if you go through this tunnel...






The stretch of highway that this ad was filmed on is in the Fraser Canyon, British Columbia, Canada. The tunnel they did this in is the China Bar Tunnel on Hwy 1 just North of Spuzzum. One of the longest in North America, at 2000'.
The car is a Mercedes SLS AMG Gull Wing. ($183K)
Its interesting, in other YouTube clips they show Michael Schumacher in the car.

There's lots of debate if the stunt is a fake or not. I want to believe.

I went a few years ago and they were a great bunch of guys to ride with and it should be a lot of fun.

Cheers
Drew
I would absolutely love to do that ride but as my 25th anniversary is on the 21st I think it might be the last ride I ever took...

MAG-NAG-DAY
Yes, it is MAG day and I will be at CBs @ 6PM tonight.
Since I rode to work today, I most likely will ride to CBs (unless it starts raining) so look for the BLUE GS out front and the yellow ADV sign on the table. Tonight's special is BEER and maybe dessert too.
EVERYONE WELCOME

I will not be able to make it, with my inconsistent schedule I will be packing to head off to Idaho City to race the ISDE qualifier. Have a great time tonight, and have one for me...

As was mentioned last night...and sorry for the late posting...

Stromtrooper June 5th Ride

All are welcome. If you're coming on a smaller bike, just know in advance you'll have to wait for all of us slower, lumbering VStrom's to haul ourselves up the roads.

The guys were happy to have you around. Sorry I couldn't catch up with everyone.

Anyway, here is the route I ended up doing: All over Wenatchee.

Pretty fun day.

back safe and sound from the black dog dual sport. more details here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...1#post13134650




our very own Whitney got 1st place in points, and a giant 4-foot trophy. I think he didn't want to strap it to his bike, which he rode out there, so it's in my garage for now.

-Andy

Thanks Dude!

I thought of doing an impersonation of Brando in The Wild One, but I'm pretty sure it would have blocked my view.

Oh and I had my hands full with the pogo action going on with the blown out rear shock.

I saw you and your lovely wife out on the course a couple times. Great job. You are a lucky man.
