    I can't believe you were in Vancouver and didn't call! Remember that poutyfaced picture on my ride? That's what I look like now...

    And enough on the dirt bikes! I'm blowing too much importing my other vehicles and excavating. A dirt bike is now down the list I'm afraid.

    Navi????? I'm passing this one off to you! Or any of you other locals reading???? Having just moved to BC, I know next to nothing and am still trying to wend my way through the convolutions of vehicle insurance myself. I will ask around and see if anyone I know might be able to help. And I'm becoming best friends with the ladies here at ICBC (provincial insurance agency) so will try to stop in and ask them if I go into town. Hopefully we'll get you some answers one way or another!

    + 1 Dave Fitzpatrick has a great insurance agency and their coverage is cheaper too. The other one is Beacon. http://www.beacon724.com/products.php?id=7

    Just ask away and either will guide you through the process.

    Thanks heaps, you Canadians are a good bunch.
    I'll follow up those leads
    .parking insurance sounds like a rip off to me.

    You definitely don't want it be skiing in BC so far this year! All the low hills are closed and everyone else near the coast is hurting. Not much better all the way right either but at least we're still open.

    Hey there BikerAl when are you going to put up some more adventures? Anything good on the horizon?

    Happy New Year from Colorado!! :clap

    I trust that you are having a good winter and have spent plenty of time during the long nights scheming about your next adventure?

    Did you get your shed finished yet?

    Hope you are happy, healthy, warm, ......... and gruntled!

    Funny you should ask! I'm going to the Canucks game this Friday . . . is that the sort of "next adventure" you two are asking about?

    OK, I may be hopping a plane soon for a little get away and going on a road trip in the van to the Grand Canyon with the kids once UBC ends but I think you're asking about the motorcycle variety??? And yes, still thinking I'll head south late spring, Oregon and Northern California coasts, Death Valley, southern Utah, then up through, of all places, Colorado! That's the tentative plan, and sheet, no, the shed's not done! In fact, an old boyfriend came up a couple months ago and gently suggested the shed was in the wrong spot so we proceeded to winch it back about 20 feet. Now it's in worse shape than when I returned from my trip! And, well, I think before I finish it off I'll be putting up another shed across the way. Need something to store firewood in and want an outdoor covered work area. My never-ending to do list. Any more questions, you two?
