    Thanks for the support. So far I seem to be healing up well. This brace sure makes ordinary life a pain in the ass. Beats the hell out of what could have happened though. I'm looking forward to riding again, but I'm going to be timid, and my wife is reluctant to let me out again, but she knows that it's what I live for - she'll come around...

    Heal up Cedric, I think we've actually ridden together before, that ride we were trying to make it up Beavis, was Zeal, Ernest, Andrew, you, and myself (Andreas).

    I'm in the SW, new to the area but always up for a ride (actually did 300k yesterday on my KLX). I've also got a CBR, KTM200, CB350 and a V-strom on the way... so anything goes!!

    I remember you Andreas. You got yourself some new wheels, eh? Unfortunately for me, I just sold my DR. Sad to see it go, but when one leaves, another one finds it's way in somehow. Hopefully we can hook up for some more dirt riding this summer.

    yeah there are quite a few of us that ride out of the Calgary area. I've had great luck meeting people on the ADSMC board but last year there was a falling out between 2 club members and the board split into 2. one is ADSMC and the other on is alberta dualsport. I hope to see some kind of reconciliation this year, but we shall see.

    Either way, if yo're looking to meet up with people you should get onto one or both of those boards. we had a pretty good weekly trail ride out at mclean creek on weeknights and lots of fun weekend day and overnight rides. if you like long distance, look into the Cypress ride.. it usually happens early in the season and is a good icebreaker.

    hope to see you out this year,

    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.

    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.

    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:freaky

    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...:D

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