    I hope the weather gets better for you. Supposed to be get sunny and hot on the weekend.
    Looks like you are having fun despite the weather and you will definately like the ferry ride North.
    We love riding on the Island. If you happen to travel over to Port Alberni and need a hand with anything, just ask.
    Have a safe trip.

    Met a local on a Ducati 796 and he took us to Chemainus near the local market. We found this. Great Americanos and pastries.

    Its the Drift HD Ghost video camera. It is a standard bar mount unit that fastens similarly as a zip tie, but it is removable. The mount is on a ball type joint so you can position the camera and also tighten it down. Works great, and you can adjust on the fly if you are careful.
