Thanks for asking. No I’m not a BC resident - live in Ontario and I ride a VStrom 650. I’d say my range is usually anywhere between 350-400km, but I have hit 500km on one tank when I was riding it at 100km/hr in top gear for a full tank. Earlier in this thread I see there are some gas stops along Hwy20, which would have been enough for my bike. I was actually just speaking with my wife about this and I’ll visit the coast next year when it’s safer for the smaller communities. That way we can both ride to Prince Rupert and do the ferry to Bella Coola. The purpose of my trip this year is to visit my sister in Vancouver and an old friend near Prince George.
