    See you there Mark.
    As long as your speed limit is higher than your age, you're good to go!

    You boys have fun now.
    Why make the same old mistakes, when there are so many new ones to make?

    Did that route to Nelson last month and spent 2 awesome days riding around Nelson area. Watch out for road construction (between New Denver and Nakusp, I think) if you venture out that way. They poured tar/ oil all over the road and I still can't all the oily tar off the bike...it's everywhere. There are no advisories for the area, but beware. We enjoyed Kootenay Bay to Creston so much, we did it twice. Also did several trips Kaslo to New Denver.
    Should be a great couple of days.

    1900 kms in 3 days.

    A soak at Ainsworth hotsprings, checked out Toad Rock.

    One ticket, in the US.

    It doesn't get much better, than that!

    1300km in 2 days, a soak in the Best Western Hotel, no tickets in the US (one flash indicating to slow down).... doesn't get better than that!

    Thanks for the great weekend . Seen some great areas in B.C. I haven't been before. Now that I'm on holidays for two weeks I'm really thinking about grabbing some bags ,new tire and some more gear and heading out again.
