    That's a great link. It doesn't do much for the single track seekers but is very helpful for a logging road adventure. A big bike or a quad would be great for that. One note: beware of oncoming traffic! That's been the cause of many severe crashes. Have fun!
    Just like a twig, your leg will snap if you smash it into a wall with a 400 Lb bike @ 100+ Km/h. So just don't do it!

    So speaking of riding areas:

    All riding areas start from a logging area. But with so many logging areas in BC, how do some turn into trail networks? Is it simply a guy that lives in the area and is a hardcore passionate about the sport? What about when there are multiple areas in the same region? How exactly does said hardcore fellow choose which to start work on?

    The visionaries that have created our great riding networks have my ultimate gratitude. My buddy and I spend much of last winter making one trail. It turned out to be a pretty hardcore trail that needed many changes to withstand wear and errosion. My hats off to the guys that do this regularly!

    I plan on doing some (limited) forest road exploring on a KLR650. Problem will likely be that everything is snowed in at this time of year, no?

    For a close by ride I go up Eagle ridge, 20min from PoCo including loading the CR. Go on a Sunday, the Quarry is accessable and easily the best "local" ride.
    Take Johnson from Lougheed and don't stop.

    You won't. What you can do is check the field a few days (A week would be better.) before you need a pilot. There are always guys/gals hanging around that will fly just to get the time in their book. (Maybe a few bucks.) The problem is you get what you pay for. Most of the pilots with certs are already on retainer, like a lawyer. They won't risk the cash cow for a quick milk run. The good thing is, if you find a good PT pilot, you can try to get him/her on a small retainer with ADVANCE notice. You ain't gonna get them out of bed with small dough. Good luck.

    I know the GKMA has an awesome map of the Duffy lake ( Kamloops) area but I can't find a link to it on their website. They also have a good portion of th etrails up there marked kind of like ski runs ( black diamond etc). It's a great place to ride and teh GKMA runs the campground. Good fishing to boot!!

    Is Eagle Mountain still open to riders? Looking for some beginner friendly trails as close as possible to downtown Van.

    I think the closest place to Van is Mcnutt, maple ridge. It can be McNasty but you can also go there and ride more friendly trails. I took a buddy there last year, first dirt bike and first ride. He called me an asshole but thanks me for it now.

    I just got back from riding at #8 road. Big Sandy area. Has changed lots. Big deep puddles. There was a truck in over its roof. Took 3 trucks to get it out. Good entertainment for the day.

    I actually went out there for my inaugural dirt ride this morning, no crashes yet, but did realize that I forgot my trailer ramp out there once I got back home. I was riding solo this morning, but saw several bikes and quads out there when I went back to pick it up.

    What area were you riding? I was at the end of Blundell and didn't see any puddles out there.

    My wife and I picked our dirt bikes today, looking to break them (hopefully not us) in tomorrow.

    Do you guys recommend Richmond, or head out to Chilliwack as per the Cattermole post?

    We just wanted somewhere open to fart around and get used to the bikes, a wide open field to rip around at this point would be ideal
