As I stated in another post, I moved to Nanaimo in May. Due to work commitments, I didn't get a chance to do a lot of riding this summer; what little I did was mostly in my old haunts around or near Kamloops (Hwy 5A, 8, 99, 97, 24, 6).
I've now had a chance to explore a little bit more, and basically I've only found two decent rides on this rock, Gold River and Port Renfrew. They both kinda suck because one has to drone down the freeway first to get there. I know it's a different riding environment; I'm still trying to adjust to the suicidal deer and blind corners, bush and limited sight lines. I'm just having trouble finding places I can have a little fun on the Gixxer without seeing impending death or vehicle impoundment as my two alternatives. Any suggestions from the locals?
