does anyone have the book destination highways? i just went and bought a copy today. i have only looked through it a bit already but it seems very good. lots of info, sometimes too much on the maps though.

the only thing i dont like about it is that not all the maps have north at the top of the page, kinda confusing. i would recommend it to anyone considering buying a copy.

there is also a site but i find it very slow.

I've got a copy but we haven't had the opportunity to "just go somewhere" by the book. It's always been a destination with a time frame. Maybe this summer.....

I won a copy of the DH book at a Ducati rally I went on last year. I think it's excellent! I found some nice local roads that I had never even known about before...like up past Gibsons all the way to Lund. I live on the North Shore, and that ride is only minutes (plus a ferry ride) from my house.

But I was in the same position as BMatt...too many time constrictions allowed us to only go on one really organized full day ride, by the book, last season.

Yep, reality bites alright.

I think there is a great long weekend ride waiting up in the interior using the book. It shouldn't be too hard to put together a loop that stays off the 401 and away from prying eyes. My times up there going to other rallies and Sportbike West last summer showed my this.

yeah, time, its almost as bad as money. not enough of it most of the time. i also found it interesting how many roads were there that i didnt realize were there.

ive been thinking of taking a month or so off in the summer and just riding around down south, especially the island. now i know all the good routes.

some people have posted about riding the loop through whistler and lilooet, that whole loop is in the book and sounds really good.

Destination Highway is a superb book. I bought it last year and did a few short trips. My favorite route so far is DH9, Merrit - Kingsvale although I haven't tried DH1 yet.

A GREAT way to spend some quality time with your bike :cool

Motorcycle touring and camping is my second favourite activity. Until you guys strap on a set o' bags and hit the distant backroads you won't know what you're missin'.

Even with my crash down in Oregon I wouldn't have missed that trip on a bet. Those roads are what these bikes were meant for. Not sloggin' around in our lowermainland traffic soup......

Sorry I meant DH9 Spences Bridge to Lower Nicola (Merrit)
yeah i would like to do that on a bike too. ive been through there in my car before and it was fun.

i have a who lives in cousin nelson, i might have to go down for a visit and try DH1. i think any of the routes they have in that book would be good, you notice the book doesnt even go as far as i live. tells you what the riding is like up here.:rolleyes
