    I will meet you up there! I have no interest in two wheels until I can get up to altitude with them!

    The main roads are clear here but no way you could get up any FSR. If all that snow melts at once every one is going to need one of these here in the Shuswap

    There is plenty of food... perhaps not the food people want, but you won't starve. People don't want ground chicken? lol Yes, fascinating and scary to watch how human beings react to these sorts of things. Hunker down, I think it may get worse before it gets better. Stay well out there folks. I will be insuring my GS early, I figure its a good way to blow off steam in isolation and get to places un-reached by the masses :) that's my excuse and I am sticking to it.

    Yup. It’s amazing how a run up the gears, doing the “ton”, changed my world outlook. Albeit somewhat, briefly.
    I love myTriumph.

    stay safe out there. But get on your bikes soon.

    for those planning a cross-border trip, either way, the border is now temporarily closed to non-essential traffic by mutual consent of both countries. commercial shipments excluded.
