Add in one more. I added a WR250R last summer, and I try to get out to Macleans whenever I can. I'm still learning the routes, and would love to find some riding areas that aren't under a foot of water! I'll have to give Waiporous a try this spring.

Nice clean bike. I used to own a Yamaha WR400 that was street legal with a Baja Designs Kit.

Calgarian adv riders

Hi guys im new to Calgary, am fresh off the boat from England, i have just bought a KTM640adv on which i plan to ride from Alaska to Argentina, i have been out a couple of times in the last week, tried to go out on sunday but 10" of fresh snow stopped play, i got 100 meters and came home again. I am very interested in meeting up for a ride or a beer sometime, i dont have any knowledge of local trails so any help would be most welcome.

Welcome WMBO it's nice to hear of a fellow englishman arrive, though I must add that I am a CANADIAN now. I have been fortunate to ride with the ADSMC last year and can not wait for this season to arrive. Keep an eye on their web site, as we meet up every 4 weeks or so for a beer, wings and BS.

As soon as the collar bone is healed I'm ready for a rip!

wmbo - what kind of riding are you looking for? The trails are going to be pretty soggy for a while. Lotsa snow this year and it hasn't even started raining yet. Not to mention all the snow hasn't even melted.
But there are some decent gravel roads that can be pretty fun as well as some nice twisty roads (paved) not to far out of town. But even some of those are still closed...until the 15 of April, I think.
I can let you know when I'm heading and out and show you a few places to ride.
And even some good places to stop

nother guy in calgary

I am living in calgary and love the town/area. I would love to meet up and see some more. I have been here for a couple years now and my only excuse for getting out has been fishing. Boy is this place beautiful...

Still trying to find another bike. I have none currently..

Besides Mclean cr, I love ripping through the rolling hils SW of Nanton, east of 22. You can plan some good loops on gravel with a restaurant stop or 2 in there. Any one else have a fav spot to go?

His collar bone is NOT healed but he went riding with me and he doesn't know how to slow down lol. Someone tell this guy that his 950 won't get upset if it's not always pinned!

I can't help it if the bike wants to go full throttle, it straightens the corners out...... pretty sore today though, thanks for coming out!
