    Yeah. I really am not a fan of the paved roads but I can't hire a bike where they allow you off road. I was just trying to put something together after the organised ride I was planning to go on was cancelled. I like your suggestion of going further south and across. As it turns out, though, the other people I was hoping would be able to join me to keep this holiday together have advised they will be unable to travel with us next year. So it looks like the whole trip will be cancelled. Thanks for you assistance.

    Just moved to Kelowna and have a KTM 790 on the way.
    Love exploring, multi-day rides with my hammock excite me and single track does not scare me.
    Just glimpsing around I see miles and miles of smiles in the area!
    I’ll be looking for fellow Inmates putting about.

    Lots of Okanagan Dual Sport riders on FB, Check them out. Some of them organize some group rides into nowhere. Lots of us grey hairs are members of the BMW valley Riders. Lots of experience in the group that know the back roads and trails but we don't organize any rides per say. Just spots to ride to for Pie :D No one cares how you get there or what you ride either.

    Not much action on this thread unfortunately, just bought a KTM 390 Adv, live in Lake Country. I signed up for the FB group, we’ll see if that’s more active I guess.
    Cheers, Kevo

    Yeah the Kootenay guys are more active, not many Okanagan guys on ADV I guess.

    Lots of regular users on the FB dual sport/adv group. Post up your ride or put up a request and you're sure to find someone who's ready to ride.
