Forum: Ride Reports

Detailed ride reports. Only great trip reports, your daily ride to Pemberton isn't required.

  1. Wrong Way Down 2019 - NorCal

    We have been doing WWD for 10 years now and after missing last years trip, I decided to join SnoDragon and Chia this year. Following a formula that has been refined over the years we escaped for 5 days to NorCal October 4 to 8th. Trailered 1200kms to Anderson, CA. I was solo with a U-Haul...

  2. Comments on these Kootenay Routes?

    Nelson to Lake Louise via the 93 Lake Louise to Revelstoke via the #1 Revelstoke to Kamloops via the #1 I know they are more scenic than curvy, and thats ok, just would like toi know if there are any reasons to avoid this route (poor pavement, slow traffic, police, boredom, or just slow) ...

  3. Adventures in the American Southwest

    So, after 6 days of riding in northern and central California https://www.bcsportbikes.com/forum/showthread.php/200778-Cali-Ride-May-2016, and after numerous remarkable roads (most of them pretty demanding), the time came for 'something completely different'. Friday May 20, 4 of us remained (...

  4. Eastern WA: 4 days 2000 kms

    So, a dreadful summer from a riding pov for me - never-ending work - but that's just complaining, which is not why you read these posts. But finally, just as summer ends, I got away... Four days, into some of my favorite country, in eastern Washington. Day 1: 630 kms 9 am to 5:30 pm ...

  5. Road Report - Night Hawk to Tonasket

    The back road from Night Hawk to Loomis and on to Tonasket is crap. Don't get your hopes up for a spirited ride, since a road crew messed it up with loose patches of gravel here and there and all over the place. At least with a pothole, you can ride around it.

  6. Talking Vancouver to Eastern Washington - 2 Day Trip

    With an Eastern Washington trip long overdue and Don “doser's” post from last year as motivation, I finally got it together and made it happen. The original plan was a 3 day trip ending with a loop around the Duffey, but some last minute things forced me to shorten this to a 2 day report, opting to...

  7. Duffey Loop East to West

    Just got home from a Duffey loop . Ride report: Hwy 12: no gravel, watch for deer and bears (there was one taking a stroll along the highway!). Hwy 99 south from Lillooet to Pemby: some rough bumpy bits, gravel at Joffre Lakes and 22km outside Pemberton, all else clear, watch for deer, distracted...

  8. WA Roads

  9. And now for something completely different .........

    Yes, it is called BC Sportbikes. And this thread doesn't contain a motorcycle ...... it isn't even aimed at sportbikes. And maybe it should be over at Advrider, but WTH; here it goes. I sold my plated XR650R earlier this year without going on any decent rides with it. But I'm hankering to get...

  10. Appalachians May 2018

    I passed thru the Appalachians (the mountainous country stretching from northern Georgia to West Virginia) in 2015, and was strongly attracted to the beautiful scenery, deep history, friendly small towns, and numerous deserted winding roads. Since then, I have nurtured a desire to return to the...

  11. Western Washington and Northeastern Oregon - August 2018

    An invitation from Rubherdown to join him and several others for a tour thru NE Oregon came at a time when I could pull away from work for an extended weekend, and I happily joined in - the John Day area is one of the finest places on the planet in which to tour. We rode as far as Munroe WA on...

  12. Vancouver to Colville WA and back

    One of my favorite weekends trips: pretty big days, with quite serious riding, but absolutely lovely countryside and an amazing sequence of wonderful, varied, riding roads! And a fine little town to spend the nite in, too... Vancouver to Colville: 740 kms 10 hours ...

  13. Hwy 3 - Hope - Princeton resurfacing

    To go along with Frank's observations of Hwy 12, they have a very speedy crew doing the western end of the twisties of the Hope - Princeton. I say speedy because they made a lot of progress between June 1 and June 17 when I rode it last. Should be all done with lines painted by July 15 - making it...

  14. HWY 12 Lytton to Lillooett Resurfacing

    Rode it this past weekend after hearing about roadwork being done. Had kind of sworn off of it a couple years ago. Wow! This is one smooth road now, with fresh blacktop. Looks like they have paved about 75 percent of the road, and while there are still a few sections yet to be paved, meaning...

  16. Overnight to Goldendale

It was going to be the first long shake down on the mighty VFR after all the work had been completed. Someone asked once about a New Bike Day thread...

  17. A week in Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana

    I got back a week or so ago from a week roaming in Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, and I've been slow to post details ( house guests, etc), but there is some remarkably fine riding to be had in this area, together with some forgettable droning, and I'll try to 'fill you in' over the next few posts....

  18. ... and then a week in Oregon

    Perhaps surprisingly, I still have a job! Outa here for a week in the middle of August for Idaho and points east; then great weather looming in mid September, so.... more of the same! The impetus was a weekend at ORP with my buddy Jason - third year in a row for us, and I think my fifth out of...

  19. Wrong Way Down 2015

    Was extremely last minute this year, and as such, was pretty tough to gather any sort of crew, so just a local bud and myself went down this past Sat, and met Adam (tatoodles) for a few days of NorCal bliss. As in the past, was simply a season ender, save the best for last and get more turns in...

  20. IOM TT 2016-- A photo essay.

    Well as the title says I went again to the TT, again I planned it 6 weeks or less in advance, again it wasn't anywhere near as difficult or expensive as people who have never been like to make it out to be. So as I pointed out, multiple times, I went to this years TT. It came out of fucking...

  21. Cali Ride May 2016

    Over the winter, there was a strong current of interest in riding in California 'early season' ( i.e., May) as an adjunct to, or replacement for, the usual Sept/Oct Nor Cal BCSB WWD trip. And since I had a lot of unfinished business left after a weather-restricted two weeks that LCPeter and I...

  22. Not really a ride report

    Ok so a few of us went for 10 days to Cali and back, and while we didn't stop and take pics of the roads, here are a few we did take. I ended up doing about 2300 miles, two up on a 1947 Vincent. We went to Osoyoos for the first night and then south, first stop was dry falls. Next we...

  24. Touch-ups continue on Duffey loop, but riding season is on

    Had an 8 a.m. meet-up this Sunday at Taylor Way and the Upper Levels, and we were sitting down for breakfast in downtown Squamish before 9. My two fellow riders were my frisky work buddy, who has a knack for triple-digit sweepers on his Speed Triple, and his friend, whose day job is as a movie...

  25. Thumbs up Question About A Route.

    Hello, Looking for some input here. I have to be in Las Vegas for a meeting in May. I am thinking of leaving a few days early to find some nice, twisty roads to ride on the way down and the same way back. I don't want to criss-cross through a bunch of different states to do this. I...
