Welcome to the area Kerberos.Hi there Tim, greetings from a recent transplant from Vancouver to Kelowna. However my bike it still in YVR, hoping to get it up here within the next couple weeks. I see so many bikes out now, and the weather is perfect, and I can't wait to get out and explore the Okanagan back-roads and into the Kootenays.
I was also too cheap to get the Destination books, but I eventually broke down and got the WA one with the map, and someone gave me the BC one. They have been indispensable, especially when the majority of roads are out of cell service, its like having a bit of google in your tank bag.
Be safe out there!
It might look perfect out there...but it still fricken cold.
I did Kel >Westside> Salmon River road >Salmon Arm for lunch and back the same way yesterday. Cold.
And did Green Mountain Road >The Pie Store >White Lake road >Green Lake road>and home today.
Not complaining mind you, it was good riding both days, the roads are surprisingly clear of gravel but GMR has some wicked new potholes and woops. But great fun of course.:thumbup
Yes, I will have to pony up for the DH material for sure. The real shame is these guys have not yet done Oregon.
