Your making me jealous bringing up a ride like harrison because since I am going through my break in I couldn't handle that right now but thanks. The rest of you go and have fun. Monday me and Mr. Murphy are riding since he is still going through his break in as well. I think that we are going to take the back road to mission(Dewdney Trunk) which will still be fun but not anything near anything riding to Harrison. I should be able to make the April 7th ride. Should be done break in by then. THat will rock can't wait. I hope for great weather and a good turnout.

Isn't Monday only a stat for Government employees? I get Friday off but not Monday.

Monday April 1st is not an official statutory holiday. Private sector companies are not obligated to give you a paid day off. However, all government employees have this day off probably because the unions fought for it. No one at any government level is going to complain.

If the weather is nice, I will be out riding. When it gets a bit closer and the forecast is a little more reliable, I am sure there will be plenty of interest in a ride. :)

I drove to Harrison on Tuesday. There is still a LOT of gravel on the road. It's gonna be real messy and scary on the corners. Better to stick to the coast for another week or two.

We rode to harrison a couple of days ago, it is fine. Vrombc.com went up to whistler last weekend and said the sea to sky is clear as well. If you worried just take it easy.

I say start off from the Kingsway and Willingdon Esso station in Burnaby at 11am ? head to porteau cove and further ? and then off to langley where we can meet up with Manny and he can take us to the twisties at 3pm ? good plan ? any suggestions ?

Man you guys... I rode to Harrison like a month and a half ago, it was totally nice. I wouldn't be into Squamish, too cold up there I think, at least Harrison is warmer.

If its gonna be Harrison, I'm in. I have Monday off, I work in a law firm, not a government job and I get the day off. :p

I don't have internet on the weekends normally (only at Digi's house), so I'll check in later, firm something up guys, so I'll know where to go and when.

ZOOM ZOOOOOOOOM up to Harrison!!!

Oh yeah, and to the guys just breaking in their bikes that posted near the top of this thread, I'm breaking in my R1 too, getting my 1,000 km service on Tuesday. If I can do it, YOU can dooooo it!!!

Ya, the Esso there at Willingdon and Broadway is what he might mean, it is brand new and maybe there is one at Kingsway and Willingdon but I also may have not been paying attention. Anyway, my break in will be finished by wednesday the 3rd so that leaves me out of the harrison ride but oh well , I can;t wait for the ride on the 7th. You guys have fun, and be safe. CIAO

4pm should be okay, but I will need a cell # so I can confirm with you. I don't have set finish times at work, I finish when the truck is empty so it varies. 4pm should be good though.

Thanks, I'll meet up at 232nd noontime. My Bandit isn't insured yet so I'll be riding my cruiser bike ( '84 blue/black Goldwing ).

I'll probably leave the Chevron at Kensington/Lougheed in Burnaby around 11am and do various backroads to 232nd. With some luck and a modicum of skill, I'll time it right for noon!

I've never seen anything like that either, imagine what Byron could do on a sport bike eh?

I hope to ride with you again soon Byron, you could teach me a thing or two for sure and I look forward to it... you were amazing!! But could I expect less from a guy that has such a fabulous web page, a web page that I tell everyone who checks out my homepage to check out?

Glad we could finally meet, after its been what? Three years of emails or thereabouts?

I have whole new respect for non-sport bike riders now. He was really good with that slug of a goldwing.
