    3 of us did it a few weeks ago and its dryer than a popcorn fart. More like concrete in that muddy area. One guy still managed to crash in the same spot where he did on the BCBTR and it was dry.

    We didn't loose a single Loosescrew rider in there 2 weekends ago. This is just below where the above picture was taken.

    Sadly, no Maxman sighting at the LSDS 2011.

    Manxman is sad about that too.

    When I got home from the Chilcotin on the Thursday before the event, I had more oil on my rear wheel than I had in the final drive. I couldn't get it fixed in time to go on Friday.

    Looking forward to LSDS 2012. (Maybe on a KTM:evil)

    I was wondering where you were. Those 990ADV are really nice looking :)

    That brings back good memories of the ride. That is me at 00:22 on the right side of the driveway as you left the Cariboo Lodge. I was waiting for the guys that I was riding with. What was the problem with the bags that they kept coming loose?

    That sure sounds like a Dakar (nice bike - at times I thought I was riding it) and there is no way that was on January 19, 2009! :huh

    I bent the home made mounts on the ammo cans on my back gate just before setting off from home. I have since fixed it.

    :roflno. I haven't discovered time travel yet. I only got the HD808 a few days before the ride and totally forgot to reset the date/time txt file. You will see the same problem in the videos I hope to post over this weekend. Should be three or four more from day 2.

    I hope everyone has seen Manxman' posts under the TCAT thread. :deal Wow! that looks amazing. Looking forward to riding that section next year :evil. Hopefully...

    Old Nicola road was one of the highlights for me, thanks for posting that. The crash in the mud was interesting to see from that angle.:clap
