    Since I got my license ~12 years ago, I've toyed with the idea of doing a Saddlesore 1600 - 1600kms in 24 hours - but have never got further than the thinking about stage. I'm starting to thing more seriously about it now, and would like to give it a shot for nothing more than the challenge and...

  3. V-Strom review - Demistifying the incomprehensible

    I've had my V-Strom for close to 5 years now (I think), and still love this machine like no other bike I've ever ridden. Recently I've gotten into a few conversations about it and have had a really hard time expressing what it is exactly that makes me feel so convinced that this is the best...

  13. Anyone interested in an Iron Butt ride in 2011 ?

    I will likely do at least one and maybe two IB rides in BC in 2011. A Saddlesore 1600 Km and a 2000 Km. These will both likely be routed up to Prince George, south to McBride, Kamloops then Vancouver. A little deviation is needed for the SS2000 Km but have the routes and gas stops all sorted out. ...
