    Seriously, I think you're making more of this than you should.
    If we issued warnings about every place where a murder or two happened, everybody would stay home.
    Nevermind how many "killers" are on the loose in your state/country.

    I agree it should be pointed out. Travelling in Canada often brings people to let down their guard a bit, at least as far as human predators in the wilderness areas. I was reading a thread a few days ago in the epic rides section, about a female ADV’er riding in the northern BC and Southern Yukon region. Her interaction with an extremely creepy male, who actually followed her to a store gas station, made me creep
    Out a bit. Indeed, if I can find this thread, I’m going to phone the RCMP to
    Make them aware of this interaction.

    There are very good, and very evil people in every region of the world.

    Maybe it is just me but if I was traveling a lonely road where a double homicide just took place with no apparent motive I would want to be aware of it.

    This is what a riding forum is all about. Not to create hysterics, but to pass on information of note to people who are out on rides. I would not fear it, but good to be aware of if you are up there.

    Never mind the wachos in urban areas, which police are in close proximity with,,,,,remote distant areas can be 1-3 hrs from help. Don’t get all paranoid, but situational awareness should be second nature to all, anywhere.

    Thats a real coincidence? there were 2 separate murders in this part of Northern BC the 2 murders were about 1 week a part
    SteveG try to find the ride report of the creepy guy following the Adv rider, it may be of interest to the RC.s
    Edit: I found the report Little Bike rides BC so I sent her a PM

    My situational awareness tells me I'm in far more danger from improperly loaded trucks.

    Yes it is pretty remote but lots of traffic this time of year, some body must have seen something and just haven't clued in as to what it means. Just be aware of who and what are around, good advice anywhere.

    There is also a history of polices hiding serial killings in BC. Actually many parts of Canada for that matter. Not that I would change my trip plans. However I wouldn’t let my guard down just because I was in Canada instead of say Mexico or any other country that is portrayed the like.

    Interesting to us . We're spending the Summer traveling Alberta, B.C. and North to Tuk . Riding bikes , kayaking
    and camping . Thanks for the updates !
    In Cherryville at the moment heading for Well Gray . I've been riding as much of the TCAT on my KTM 500 as
    I can , so that gets a bit remote .
    Here's one for you Cal .

    I have a lot more respect for the RC investigators on the ground than the dullards doing the public service calculations and announcements. They have stated that the public has nothing to fear. WHAT? Are they implying the victims were somehow involved with the person who killed them or they were targeted? Frankly I'm very upset at these deaths and embarrassed that this happened to innocent explorers of B.C. The PC RCMP has become nothing more than a sham, except for those doing the good work within.

    BTW, If I was that young man's dad there would be a lot of questions and if this was my investigation I would welcome his input and reasonable assistance with the investigation.

    Seems like SOMETHI NG is going on up there.

    As an aside, I was followed many years ago by a man in a white panel van in Ohio. He stopped to talk to me in the parking lot and it went creepy...
