Detailed ride reports. Only great trip reports, your daily ride to Pemberton isn't required.
Oh, yeah. Best vacation yet. Except for the dropping-the-bike thing...

Route: Burnaby to Princeton via Highway 1 & 3 (~550km)
I lay in bed early Sunday morning and am getting constant text messages "encouraging" me to come out for a one nighter ride to Big White and back. Eventually I caved in and put my stuff together and headed out. I would catch up to the group either in Pemberton or Lilloet. I filled up at the...
3 most common phrases on this trip riding a Triumph.
What kinda bike is that?
I never knew Triumph made bikes like that.
When I was young, we all used to ride Triumphs.

Just got to test ride the new BMW F650GS this past weekend. For those that don't know... it's not actually a 650 - it's a 798cc. Unlike the old bike this one's a twin. Horsepower is up from a meager 50 to a respectable 71.
Read the rest here - lots of pictures and more...
I needed to get away. I needed to put my new tires to the test. While the rest of the world was working for the weekend, we took off for a 4 days Honda road trip.
In our wake we left a trail of little yellow stickers to mark our journey and for those riders that will come after us. For...
Three months ago, a buddy and I attempted to circumnavigate the entire country of Australia in two months on two Suzuki DR650's. I made it 17,000km when I hit a kangaroo going 110kmh ending my bike trip a bit early.
Full detailed trip report and many more photos can be found here:
Here's a rather interesting trip report out of motorcycleusa.com from a guy who rode a 250 Ninja thru the Indian Himalayas for a week - the spirit of adventure is far from dead - it's wonderful hearing about people doing sketchy trips on unsuitable machinery! Maybe one day I'll ride some of these...
Day 1 - US border to Chewelah, WA
I spent 4 days riding a loop through southern BC and the Cascades in Washington. I don't have the riding + picture taking kung fu abilities so these pics aren't as cool as some others here.
Didn't go too crazy on distance, but covered 1800 km. I wouldn't have been able to take much more than...
Mid-week prior I spoke with a friend about going for a ride this mid-july weekend. My first planned route was deemed too short so I came up with something a little longer
The plan included multi-day motorcycle camping for the first time without consideration on where we would...

Left late, so only time for a quick pose at liberty Bell...
Just got back late last night from a 7 day solo tour of NoCal. I have a few hundred photos, and I'll post some of them up in the next while.
A few things were different about this trip than one's prior, in that I trucked my bike to a friends house in Fortuna, and also had a GPS unit for the...
south skajit highway from concrete to sedro-wooley has several multi-km stretches of chip rock - compact gravel and tar. I would recommend hopping down from concrete if you're heading to Winthrop and want a detour.
Aside from that.
Not really worthy of a full report: 6:45am-10:45pm 900km
Seeing as I'm fairly new to the riding scence her in Vancouver my freind decided he should show me some of the finer roads here in BC. I'm sure most of you have tried these hwy's before but I thought I'd put up some info and pics for the "new to BC" crowd like myself. We packed up the bikes and...
8 days, 5100km, Yellowstone National Park
To say that the ride was awesome would be a gross understatement!
There were 4 of us in the group, Lee, Michael, Ray and me (Hilton).
Our route took us through Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Oregon.
Our longest day was 772km
When I did a trip on my previous SV650 from Montreal to Vancouver, I thoguht I was one of the most frugal LD rider, but there's someone much more hard core! It took me 10 days...
Anyone know where this is?
After a year off from riding, I finally had a chance to visit the majestic Cascades Highway - on a new bike no less. Earlier this year I had already put on a few thousand miles on my new Triumph Sprint ST around NorCal. With 8000 kilometers on the odo, the oem...
