    Yo! Payner here, just checking in to see what's up on the Island! I never had a bike when I lived there and now I'm wishing it wasn't such a big ride (on the DR650) to get there and back... great roads fer sure.

    If I can get the DR650 out there some time I'd love to hook up with some of you for a bit of a run on the logging roads and such. I'll definitely check in here if I can find the time to ride out there.

    For the time being I'll satisfy myself with the BCBTR again this year. If you're coming east for that, it would be great to get together for a brew.

    A summer trip would be great! But.....what about the rest of the year. I do day trips in the winter, I try for milder dry days but I also own rain gear.

    Coombs area here. I would love to connect with you folks but doubt if the bike I have (82 R100RS) is suitable for much gravel, etc.

    I wouldn't consider not doing it and I commute yr round from Colwood to the Airport.

    Missed 15 days commuting in 09 and 7 so far in 2010.
