Forum: Ride Reports

Detailed ride reports. Only great trip reports, your daily ride to Pemberton isn't required.

  1. Overnight to Goldendale

    So I had a terrific week long trip to N. California planned with friends. Hundreds upon hundreds of kilometres of beautiful California pavement. It was going to be the first long shake down on the mighty VFR after all the work had been completed. Someone asked once about a New Bike Day thread...

  2. A week in Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana

    I got back a week or so ago from a week roaming in Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, and I've been slow to post details ( house guests, etc), but there is some remarkably fine riding to be had in this area, together with some forgettable droning, and I'll try to 'fill you in' over the next few posts....

  3. ... and then a week in Oregon

    Perhaps surprisingly, I still have a job! Outa here for a week in the middle of August for Idaho and points east; then great weather looming in mid September, so.... more of the same! The impetus was a weekend at ORP with my buddy Jason - third year in a row for us, and I think my fifth out of...

  4. Wrong Way Down 2015

    Was extremely last minute this year, and as such, was pretty tough to gather any sort of crew, so just a local bud and myself went down this past Sat, and met Adam (tatoodles) for a few days of NorCal bliss. As in the past, was simply a season ender, save the best for last and get more turns in...

  5. IOM TT 2016-- A photo essay.

    Well as the title says I went again to the TT, again I planned it 6 weeks or less in advance, again it wasn't anywhere near as difficult or expensive as people who have never been like to make it out to be. So as I pointed out, multiple times, I went to this years TT. It came out of fucking...

  6. Adventures in the American Southwest

    So, after 6 days of riding in northern and central California http://www.bcsportbikes.com/forum/showthread.php/200778-Cali-Ride-May-2016, and after numerous remarkable roads (most of them pretty demanding), the time came for 'something completely different'. Friday May 20, 4 of us remained (...

  7. Cali Ride May 2016

    Over the winter, there was a strong current of interest in riding in California 'early season' ( i.e., May) as an adjunct to, or replacement for, the usual Sept/Oct Nor Cal BCSB WWD trip. And since I had a lot of unfinished business left after a weather-restricted two weeks that LCPeter and I...

  8. Not really a ride report

    Ok so a few of us went for 10 days to Cali and back, and while we didn't stop and take pics of the roads, here are a few we did take. I ended up doing about 2300 miles, two up on a 1947 Vincent. We went to Osoyoos for the first night and then south, first stop was dry falls. Next we...

  10. Touch-ups continue on Duffey loop, but riding season is on

    Had an 8 a.m. meet-up this Sunday at Taylor Way and the Upper Levels, and we were sitting down for breakfast in downtown Squamish before 9. My two fellow riders were my frisky work buddy, who has a knack for triple-digit sweepers on his Speed Triple, and his friend, whose day job is as a movie...

  11. Thumbs up Question About A Route.

    Hello, Looking for some input here. I have to be in Las Vegas for a meeting in May. I am thinking of leaving a few days early to find some nice, twisty roads to ride on the way down and the same way back. I don't want to criss-cross through a bunch of different states to do this. I...

  12. Hwy 8 and 5A good to go.

    Did the Hope > Spences Bridge > Merritt > Princeton > home loop on Sunday. Very light traffic up the canyon; typical superb breakfast at Fat Jacks; excellent road conditions on Hwy 8 ( just some dust near the centrelines, but no gravel or sand at all); perfect surface conditions on 5A south to...

  13. Liberty Bell Saturday Oct 3rd

    With my last day of insurance on the GSXR1000 I decided a trip through the Cascades would be and good way to finish off. The temp was even nicer on the way back and the road was pretty clean considering the time of year. Around New Halem you can sure see the forest fire damage. With a few more days...

  14. Mt. Baker 09/26

    Took a ride up to Mt. Baker last Saturday. Weather was supposed to be good, but ended up being kinda wet. Amazing views of being in the clouds though. My first time up this road, and the turns were great. Probably the best option for twisty roads relatively close to Van. Great fun. Want to go back...

  17. Part II. Dempster Hwy and the Arctic Circle 2015

    Our entire trip was plagued by rain. We had to wear rain gear everyday for the two weeks we were on the road. Day one of the Dempster started out as bright and sunny. Despite being up until 3:30 am we determined we needed to take advantage of the good weather and make hay while the sun was shining....

  18. Olympic Peninsula wanderings

    It was gonna be hot! Anyplace inland was O-U-T-! But what about the coast? For instance, while I’d ridden ‘the loop’, I hadn’t explored the various backroads on the Olympic Peninsula… never been to Neah Bay… never been up Hurrricane Ridge… so there was a plan. Having made a decision –...

  19. Not a crazy ride, but was interesting none the less...pictures included

    Since I was at work on Saturday the 4th, and Sunday started out cloudy, I put the old lady on the back and we headed out to Fat Jack's for the first time. 30 min into the ride, the scorching sun came out, haha. Jack's did not disappoint. Afterwards we decided to take a dip somewhere due to the...

  23. Not a big report...

    ..just a few pictures to give a glimpse of our recent ride in South Africa. To start at the beginning: we originally come from a town called Somerset West about 50km east of Cape Town. In our youth (many, many years ago...) we used to do a lot of riding in the area. As we are now getting into...
