I am no expert rider and would not claim to be one.
Until yesterday I had never ridden a Sportbike. I took on motorcycling about a year ago, and have logged over 40,000 Kms so far. I started quietly on an 800c cruiser, then I moved on a Dualsport.
So yesterday I was given the incredible priviledge to me, to put over 800Kms on a sportbike.
I took off as the blue sky was showing up in the south of vancouver.
My road was through all kind of weather. I encoutered Fog, heavy rain, wind, sun, dirty water from Hwy1 traffic, and even night riding, under rain and dry conditions.
I went Vancouver, Hope, Spences Bridge, Merrit, Logan Lake, Ashcroft, Cache creek, Pavillion, Lillooet, Pemberton, Squamish, Vancouver.
As I said I am no expert, but Duffey Lake was by far the worst road of the day. We are not at the beginning of the riding season here, but at the end. The dirt on the road is not the problem, it is more the potholes, crevasses, cheap patch job in the ashphalt. Nasty sizeable bumps who lift the front wheel, etc ...
It was my third time this year over this piece of pavement, and the first time sitting that close, maybe this is why, I don't know.
What I do know is that many of you head up this way throughout the year.
Do you really have fun up there?
Are you just transiting to better road past Lillooet?
Is it a dangerous road for a sportbike having a bit of fun?
Oh and by the way. I cannot believe how much fun a sportbike is. I have no choice but to get one as soon as I can afford a second bike and as soon as I can get time to follow an advance course. Those machines needs lots of respect and a really cool head, well at least for me. I hope to get the opportunity to try different kinds soon.
Here is some pixies at Duffey lake.
