So, as usual, I drew from the vast array of knowledge and expertise located within BCSB (tongue in cheek) and went to Modern for my most recent gear purchase.
There are shops up here in Kamloops, plus many in the Okanagan, Fraser Valley, etc...but as I was in Vancouver anyways with the family I thought I would check it out.
The shop did not disappoint at all. Good selection, decent amount of inventory on hand, and great pricing. A new RF1100 plus smoke visor, a tank bag, and a pair of new Alpinestar SMX Plus boots found their way to my home, and with pricing the same or better than that I found online, I am pretty happy.
Just wanted to provide some kudos to the shop, and to BCSB members for doing the same previously which led me to the shop to begin with.
