i can understand wanting to ride in Mexico as that is on my list too. I have never been to British columbia but my understanding is that it is nnorth of the US. so that makes it cold and snow covered this time of year i think. So i can not understand how you can ride down. My FLORIDA mine does not understand riding in that kind of cold and conditions. Can't wait for the pics!

Easy, I am on the coast... so we ride for 11 months out of the year. I got palm trees in my garden. But that is just very narrow strip of the coast that is warm. The coast mountains from Oregon, Washington. BC and Alaska get tons of snow.
BC, Yukon and Alaska is spectacular any time of the year !

I usually do the reverse. I write my report here with embedded pictures, and just before I submit it, I copy the whole post, and paste it into my Blog. That way I have a nice RR for moto folks and a Blog for family and friends who don't want to read all the ADV replies.

That copying before posting is a great way not to lose a whole entry to an ADV RR.

Lots of ADV folks won't go to another site to read an RR....and of course the point of your report is to get people to read it.
