  7. Paul Cassells Insurance.... always open!

    I went in to renew my Auto Insurance and Ena (Paul's sister) is working harder than ever to keep Cassells Insurance open. She has worked there as long as Paul has and I would hate to see the BCSB community to stop going there. While Paul's presence will be incredibly hard to replace as we all know...

  9. Bike of my dreams

    Way back in 1992, I got my full motorcycle licence 30 days after I got my learners. I passed my full licence on my first bike: a 1984 Honda XLR 350. I passed my full test in the morning.

  11. Lightbulb Where to eat? (riding in BC)

    I'm sure that many of you have a favourite place to eat in the smaller towns you pass through on your rides. I'm not talking fast food here--I'm thinking about the local "greasy spoon", a hole-in-the-wall bakery, or some funky little cafe. Please post some recommendations for good, cheap food....
