    How about just under 100 km on a Veloslex to the Cypress Hills. We brought almost 2 gallons of spare gas, but only used the 1.2 litre tanks on the bikes! One needed a splash to make it (mostly to account for the loss from a cracked fuel tank), but the other did the whole thing on one tank.

    No need to fret, the fat girl is still around. This thread is aboot Canada.

    Rims are bent, LCD died over winter :dunno, clutch master weeps, and the other day the rear brakes totally failed, plus I think it needs a wheel alignment because it always destroys rear tires. :D

    Here's a few more pictures from my spot near work. It doesn't get much more Canadian than riding in the snow. In June.

    This was taken trying to get to the top of a mountain on June 2 this year.

    Almost made it to the top on June 24.

    And these last 2 were on June 4, from the other side of the same mountain.

    It's between Hudson Hope and Wonowon, up above the Graham river. If you've ever been on the Kobes Creek Forest service road, it's up there.

    A video my son did last week riding his DR from our house in Whitehorse up to the top of Mt Mac behind our house.

    Nice fall, Whitehorse scenery.

    Nice video, fantastic countryside just on your doorstep. So that's what your driveway looks like not covered in snow.

    Looking forward to more videos, keep up the good work.

    Cheers
