    Checking in from Maple Bay. Got my GS Adventure insured year round. New to the island and looking forward to getting to meet my fellow Islanders and doing some group rides (meaning more than just me!)

    I've gotta learn to stop and take pictures but generally I'm just having too much fun. Go look at squonker's 2 Metchosin ride reports - that's pretty much Saturday. I just rode it a bunch of times kinda fast :lol3

    Yup, Ladysmith on Saturday to get the redline part of my break in done. Saw a few other riders on the road. Then I did a few km on saterday night to play with adjusting the windscreen to see if lower makes it quieter.
    Then took my lady for her first spin on Sunday.
    Bike is at SM right now getting the break in service.

    No panic John, most of the backroads to the North of Cambell are still snowed in... Let me know when your back in town and maybe I'll be down that way for coffee....

    Bummer, gonna have to stay near the water I guess. Does it seem like a long winter to you? Last year we didn't miss a Sunday ride, I think I've done 3 or 4 tops this year. Coffee sounds good to me David, hit me up we'll get together if I'm in town.

    I was going to send you a PM but with 1 post {welcome to ADV by the way} your not switched on yet...

    I enjoyed the videos...

    When you come up this way {North Island} give me a jingle and maybe your schedule will align with one of our rides...
