Well me and buddy Dave did the Duffy Lake loop thursday, 725 Kms. and what a great day. Headed out about 8 am met him on the highway going out to Abbtsfd. Took the turn off and went across to Mission and out to Hope that way. A slight bit chilly in the morning but proved to be a perfect temprature throughout the day especially with a sort of full fairing. By the time we got up to Lytton the temp was great and the roads were absolutely quite, almost no traffic until we got to permberton and then #)#*) whistler where I was stuck behind a stupid logging truck along with about 25 other poor sods. Anyway what a great day, rolled in to my underground parking lot in Bby about 6:45 feeling great. That is one thing I will say about a Kawi Concours, what a nice comfortable long distance bike. Anyway heres some pics. Just great how the colors are in fall going from the desert up around kamloops to the beautifull colors closer to home.

Excellent!! I agree with Michael. These types are much more interesting than the ones with pics of every standing around at a Timmies parking lot. Concours or some other sport touring will be added to my garage in the near future.

Gotta agree here to, nice pics. That's a great trip, although I'd go the other way, coming back in from Whistler is just too painfull.

Not much better than coming back along #1 and finding gridlock traffic from 268th! I guess there's always Hwy 7 though.

Yeah, 7 to Agassiz then Chilliwack and the backroads to Sumas then zero to Hwy 99 ... I'd rather do that than crawl back from Whistler. The other advantage to going the other way is at 7 in the morning the road to Whistler is relatively empty.

I went Whistler-Lillooet-North Van this afternoon. I've done this ride many times but never with so little traffic (until 200 st!!) and in good (for the Duffy Lake road) conditions. It was fantastic!

I did the Duffy ten days ago, and aside from a few glazed sections in the shade, it was really nice. Beautiful scenery this time of year.
