    Macuser, I'm riding the coast highway in June to Sandy Eggo and back in the first 2 weeks of July. Camping all the way down.

    Everyone else, we're riding up to Hyder, Alaska and back in a few weeks in case anyone's interested. I'm riding the VFR and not the BRP though.

    Here's a rough timeline with destinations after Hyder still up in the air:

    Day 1
    Wednesday, <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:time Hour="13" Minute="0">1 pm</st1:time>, leave <st1:City><st1:place>Calgary</st1:place></st1:City> and head for the Mount Robson Lodge campground near Jasper.
    Distance: 504 kms
    Time: 5hrs
    Details: http://www.mountrobsonlodge.com/

    Day 2:
    Thursday we head for <st1:State><st1:place>Alaska</st1:place></st1:State>, arriving in Hyder some time after supper.
    Distance: 982 kms
    Time: 12 hrs
    Details: Camp or stay at a hotel. After that long day it may be nice to have a bed and a shower.
    Hotels: http://www.kingedwardhotel.com/ and http://www.ripleycreekinn.com/ and http://www.sealaskainn.com/

    Thanks. It'll never going to look that good again. :D

    Yeah. All the dualsport stuff is either OEM KTM or Sicass. The Sicass stuff is really nice, and good quality, they've been really good to deal with too.

    I've been a RMDRA member for a few years now, but I just can't seem to get to the meetings. One of these days lol. I do try and promote them as much as I can, they're doing great work for all of us and the more support they can get, the better.

    I saw an ad for an '02 400EXC that was street legal in B.C. the other day, it looked to be in MINT condition. I can probably track it down again if you're interested.

    Just quick on the draw LOL.

    Right now I think maybe I'm an idiot, but the plan was to get it over with and have them real close together, that way I can move on to the fun part and say goodbye to diapers forever a lot sooner. It seemed like a good idea at the time...:D

    TWINS! Your life is about to change my friend, more than you can possibly imagine. Take a good look at that bike (and any other toys you have), give it a big hug, and put as many miles on it as you can now, because "happy fun time" is going to be over for you all too soon. :lol3 :rofl

    Don't get too depressed though, it gets replaced with something better. :thumb

    Thanks, I saw that ad, but I feel he wants about $1000 too much for it.

    That's kind of what I'm thinking, at least I didn't plan it that way:lol3

    That was my thought too, but I've found it never hurts to make an offer. :D

    You can always take 40 to the closure and then hang a right and follow the gravel back to Canmore. Did it on Tuesday, snowed like a motherfucker but it was fun.

    G Goat taught me that its all about attitude. If you accept it as an interesting turn of events to talk about later then you're always going to enjoy yourself. I guess when you get as frickin old as him you start to get a good outlook on life cuz its almost over :grim
