    I can't say for sure yet, I'm counting the numbers and it's still small at this point.

    I'm confident that at the last minute enough will be there, so I'm still planning to come up early and do something over at least one day and maybe two, with enough time or proximity to the start of BCBTR.

    Here's a bump for the thread that asked:

    For those who are approaching Nakusp from the south and wouldn't mind some gravel there is always the logging road from Grand Forks to Edgewood.

    All in all it's about a 2.5 hour gravel road with some signs....hrmmm...

    My riding buddy is pictured pointing to the 'adequate' cardboard sign pointing us to Edgewood. Thank God it hadn't rained as I don't think it was waterproof ink on the cardboard sign. :lol3

    Great to see you can make it this year. You are on the list.

    If that bike needs a re-fueling during one of your high speed passes, idle down and I'll lend you 10 liters.:rofl

    Do you ever have any sidecar rigs participating?I have been over most of those roads(slowly).For the Hedley road I probably have to rig another
    cooling fan.
