    Really interesting and beautifully composed pic. Congrats on that one. Desktop material.

    Ever do a Kootenay Dual Sport Calendar? There are a number of pics that would make worthy inclusions. I’d buy one. We used to do them at a sport touring site I used to frequent.

    Not Rosebud. Bigger lake, much bigger.

    I would say where I took the photo is called river with lake upstream. Yes.

    I don't have a dualsport calendar but could consider making one for 2022 if there's enough interest. I'd need at least 50 confirmed buyers to make it worthwhile. I do have some calendars featuring non-motorized activity on my website.

    Kootenay River looking toward Nelson, maybe from Marsden Road?

    My "question" was actually a hint. ;)

    I need to get some pictures.

    Hey everyone, I just joined up, live in Genelle.
    Bought a new bike this year, have never owned an Dualsporter, although had a street bike for many years.We had quads when the kids were little for some years too.
    Most recently gained interest in ADV style riding and have spent a small fortune gearing up for camping on a bike lol.
    I also love and race MX, and currently very involved with the local club KMX.
    Anyway I have a lot of questions about local destinations.
    Have many pics on a hard drive, which I’ll have to dig up.
    Annnnd I think I attached a pic and I can’t remove it lol...

    Welcome to ADV and to this thread. We could use more players, and I look forward to seeing your pics! What bike did you buy?

    OK, this one will be a little different. I didn't get any photos on this ride, so I have a short 1+min video. If you've seen the original video I pulled this from, well, you'll already know the answer.

    I bought a 21 KTM 500 Exc-f.
    I traded in my 2013 YZ450F set up for The bush.
    Although I’m not a huge KTM fan, I think they have this segment beat.

    Didn't see the original video but know this mountain well. Kootenay Joe, above Johnson Landing! At the top as you look over the crest you're looking north at the old-timers group, named after original settlers. BTW, I was the first person (maybe the only one) to fly off the top in a hang glider, back in the '70's when I was young and even foolisher. Please proceed.

    You got it! Glad you're alive today to tell the tale! My Dad climbed and named a bunch of those peaks. :-) Your turn.
