    If it’s raining, drive over. Meet your fellow west Koots. We have a huge covered deck to eat and chat Likely few of us enough that we could have any overnight folk inside. IE 8 peeps

    I love weather. Former pilot, west coast kayaker, motorcyclist .. tomorrow afternoon is going to be mixed cloud. Maybe a sprinkle.

    Looks like I am out. Ran into issues and no insurance yet. Still want to meet up with y’all at some point to ride later in the summer.

    Sounds good, looks like I can’t leave until after 10 anyhow if I am going for a ride and I will ride unless it’s absolutely hammering rain. Do they have off sales at the Lions head pub? Good excuse to stop in if they do...

    Sitting in Kaslo...pub doesn't open til 12, so I think I will ride to Balfour and hit the Dock N Duck instead. It stoppped raining a third of the way up 31A, so my "spirited" ride got a bit more spirited. LoL. The Guzzi was made for Hwy 6 and 31A! Catch you all later.

    It was great to meet you too.
    I suspect there are a bunch of fair weather riders on here. LOL.
    Let us know when that trials thing is happening.

    That was a small group but fun.
    General consensus was the Ymirtrials home made sausage was for the win.

    Good to see you guys.

    Sorry to have missed this. For some reason I wasn't getting any updates from this thread.

    Hope to see some of you out and about.

    I had a short ride up the lake past your place on Saturday, lots of roads to explore! Have you found or is there a way to ride all the way through to Fauquier? Would make a nice loop...
