One of my IBA buddies from Calgary is storing his bike in Vancouver this winter, so we can ride to Daytona for bike week.
Friday, there was a weather window and he made the trip through snow and sleet, taking the low route via Cache Creek ( the Coq had a foot of snow on itat the top according to the road reports). Thanks Michael for the route planning .
Marc's nicely outfitted LD bike (BMW GS) and he made the trip in 10.5 hours.
With proper gear, a fuel cell, heated grips and electrics combined with a serious dose of common sense including a bailout plan ( I was ready to rent a u haul and go for a mid route pickup if he got weather blocked part way) he had a safe but salty ride.
Many thanks to Carter Honda for the free bike wash, de salination rinse and anti corrison spray. Carter Granvillle island is become the LD riders dealer of choice in Vancouver.
