USA has 9 region-zones on AdvRider. Canada has 1.

I find it odd that the USA has nine region zones here on advrider while Canada only has one. I understand that the americans have a larger population, and that for climate reasons (among others), they have more motorcyclists, but 9:1. That is excessive. We have more land to ride!

I am happy that Canada is one big family here, but I think that it could be beneficial to have perhaps a Canada East, Canada Central, and Canada West.

Why?

Because I do not want to hear any more about how those bastards in BC are already riding the trails!

Feel free to add thoughts, comments, and I hope this provoked some thought.

Not enough traffic imo... as in not enough people chatting.

There are often threads here only 1/2 way down the first page and two weeks old.

It was a big step to separate Canada from Alaska on this forum.
Understanding that Canada is a foreign country to the forum owners/operators, and that the education system in the USA gives very limited exposure to anywhere else but the USA as the centre of the universe, it becomes easy to understand. Also, realize that the state of California has a bigger population than the entire country of Canada, and one can understand our place in the world, that we are a member of the G7 by default alone because we are such great people!

My own view is that it should be left as one. Always nice to see what's up elsewhere in the Great White North without having to switch regions.

Talking Meh

Europe is all in one section as well.
I see no need to have several Canada sections. If there is a thread that upsets the OP, just don't read it.

Ride On!

I meant the above in a joking manner.

I agree with SteveG.

We were happy when they stopped putting us in the same forum area as Alaska.

Agreed...
Also worthy of note.. all things Canada-USA are relative to the 10 to one rule..ie:number of regions, number of riders, number of people.etc...etc....
One region works for me.
PD

There are a lot a number of Regional Specific Forums too....

From

http://www.ridetherock.com (NFLD)

http://odsc.on.ca/phpBB3/ (Ontario)

http://www.nsdsc.ca/ (Nova Scotia)

http://dualsport.ca/Home.aspx (Another Nova Scotia)

http://www.saskatchewandualsport.com/forum/ (Sask)

http://albertadualsport.ca/cmps_index.php (Alberta)

http://www.dualsportbc.com/ (B.C.)

(There's probably more....)

All of which have exceptionally good 'Local' information.

Having the "Canada Wide" forum here is good, no question there. But for more regional information it's probably better to go and chat with the locals IMHO....

Dont worry Critt, not everyone in BC is riding yet.
Mostly just Kelowna and down on the coast...and only in the afternoon when it warms up a bit....

The earliest I have ever put the bike on the road here has been March 17...
This year I could have been riding Mid-february.
But on the flip side, the skiing and sledding sucks!
Cheers
