    Does she ride a KLR?!

    Brapp!!!

    There has been talks started about doing a north B.C trip next summer. Two weeks of back trail and roads, hauling ass and camping.

    Already stoked to ride again!

    BTW, takes me about 40 minutes to check/adjust my valves, but I also do it every 4000 KM's or sooner. haha. Still love the XRR.

    Happy to announce that after a two-year layoff (young kids), I plan on getting back onto my 640 for a few day trips (maybe longer, God (wife) willing!) this year so perhaps on my journeys I will see a few old friends and meet some new ones from this site.

    Looking forward to riding West, South and North from Cowtown.

    I can't wait! :clap

    Good to hear!


    On Dec 28th I saw a guy on a KLR in Saskatoon in -22 (near -30 windchill) with NO STUDS and VERY icy roads.

    That guy had balls.

    I wanted to talk to him but my dad was with me and we had places to be.

    X2 on conditions yesterday. Was out in the jeeps. Deepest snow was like ten inches on the back side north facing hills. Minimal ice on trail compared to past years. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I was out shooting too!

    Beautiful weather. Around 2:30-3 it got a little cooler, but up until then it was awesome!

    I am rink-bound till April, but keep the pics coming!

    Hoping to go to the Calgary MC show Friday, but it depends on my kids.

    Tyler, good to see you are still alive! We will have to hook up this spring for a cocktail!

    Went for a rip today. Side roads were snowy, mains had very little ice but lots if gravel. So nice to get out and bang through the gears though. [​IMG]

    The first one is on a motorcycle, the last 3 are on a quad.

    Here is a link to a map of the passes and below are videos to see what the trails look like.

    I was thinking about the "Orange Dragon" when I saw that rocky section. It looks okay but I have seen pictures of hills I climbed that looked much easier on the picture. (maybe looks less steep since you are looking upward when you take it. )

    It looks like a fun ride. It would be worth trying it out later in the summer. Maybe Dutch Creek earlier in the season?

    Good idea to get in better shape before riding season. I plan to as well... but we all know how plans sometimes go.

    I am not great at mechanical work but I try to be useful to other riders by being able to lift heavey stuff.

    I rode the Atlas Creek Road in early September. The bridges were still there, however the lack of maintence is evident.
