    Has anyone ridden the backroads from Tofino south to Victoria?
    - What condition are they in?
    - How long is the ride?
    - Any sites to see?
    - Is it possible to ride it 2-up on a KLR?

    Get yourself a Vancouver Island backroads map book and it will help you find your way through the maze of logging roads. Everything from overgrown, decommisioned to graded dirt highway. Lots of lakes and rivers along the way with blackbears and cougar waiting for you.:D :lol3 :eek1

    It's a cakewalk. Although you'll have to ride mostly paved roads to Alberni, it gets much better after that. Head Southwest towards China Creek (don't worry, the pavement ends soon) and on to Bamfield and you will not be dissapointed. If you go after labour day you will have the beaches to yourself. Bamfield to Port Renfrew is an option, but there are many to choose from and some good camping spots along the way. Local knowledge is one thing, but there are quite a few roads back there that can get you into trouble, so pick up a backroad mapbook and take it with you. Take bearbangers with you if you plan to camp overnight. Have fun..GB
