The Einstein on the R1 has all of 3 yrs experience according to his posts on a local FB group. Managed to stick his front wheel between the rear duals as it was rolling along ...... no recollection of getting of the bike. Obviously so zoned out/distracted that he was right up the tail of that dump truck. And in morning rush hour, speeds along there aren't much more than 60 km/hr or so. I lived out in east Abbotsford for 4 years, way up a hill. There was no transit so there was no easy access for nefarious characters to access the neighborhood. Combined with being 3 km off the highway and about 400m in elevation gain, they weren't riding their stolen bicycles thru either. However that LMD crush and total disregard of any civil treatment of strangers was enough. We moved to the east Kootenays and what a difference. Average home prices in the $250K range. My neighbor will be selling his 7 yr old, 4500 sq ft, beautifully finished, in law suite, 2 car attached/1.5 car detached garage, corner lot place in the next year or so ..... planning on asking $625K. Incredibly clear air and water. People that, for the most part, treat each other with respect and kindness. Almost empty roads. Easy access to Spokane, Calgary and Kelowna. Endless trails and dirt roads to explore. Wildlife like I have never seen. Ospreys, kestrels, grizzly, elk, white tail ..... it is endless. The summer has been fantastic with weeks of 28-30 deg C days and no water restrictions. And I'm looking forward to having 4 seasons again ...... but I can update that in January! We aren't 100% that this is our retirement spot yet but after 4 months we still love the area. There must be something going for it, there are a lot of retirees already here.
