    Are there any must sees or anything mandatory about riding this island? Thinking about march/april trip for about 4 days. Any good resources to find info? I know its a beautiful place, just looking for any suggestions that are off the beaten'(tourist) path. Any economical motels and interesting pubs? Look forward to more input...

    I'm guessing you mean Vancouver Island, as the Victoria Islands are up in Nunavut and have no roads nor hotels.

    Other than riding the main road up and down the island to Port Hardy, you should go out to the west coast to check out Bamfield, Tofino, etc. There are some residents of Vancouver Island here but I don't think they log on very often.

    Lots of great trails here on the island. Victoria Motorcycle Club includes a few DS events as well.
