Gorgeous out there today. I don't want to start any controversy like last year but I went out lapped the angel falls section and came back home. Conditions are good for this time of year mostly clear of gravel until out past cherryville. When you're heading up mine hill(the double lanes steep hill just past cherryville) there's some gravel and after that there's bits of gravel here and there and lots on the shoulders still. Most of its been blasted off the corners though. As I was having a bite to eat just before my last pass through the falls the sportbike west group came by so it was fun to ride home with a bunch of sportbikes. Pretty chill group of guys. Closest I've come to a 'group' ride.

LOL .....so you're hangin with the testosterone crew now. Been on few of those outings and they're not for the faint hearted. My drivers license shakes uncontrollably at the memories.

Well I had figured I'd have plenty of fuel to make it back and then arrived literally on fumes. Was fun to see the other bikes. I pretty much ride with my wife or solo like I had headed out yesterday. May do the out and back again today if my wife is up for it.

I will add as always a bit of discretion is in order if you aren't familiar with the road(like any road obviously) as has been mentioned previously in this thread it's real easy to get in over your head and lots of blind corners etc. Up top there's still the possibility of gravel here and there. But overall the pavement is in excellent condition after the winter I didn't bother going right into Edgewood just through angel falls(7km of tight twisties) right before the big straight stretches before Edgewood turnoff.

Heh maybe I'll run into some bc sportbike riders out there one day?

given the US / Covid/ border thing I expect you'll see a LOT of BCSB traffic into and thru the Kootenays this summer. ( by " a lot" I mean, a few, cuz there aren't many 'of us', these days...)

Sunday I saw a busa, gixxer, and didn't catch what the third bike was at my local gas station . They had a good chuckle at me I think as all I was missing was flipflops as I rolled in wearing shorts, t-shirt, and motocross helmet to get fuelled up(I live just around the corner)

Today is westside Rd for me. Two birds, one stone. Gotta go down to pick something up this morning

Saw a group of 20-30 pirates cruising that highway around 3 weeks ago. It's definitely a fun road.

Last autumn we were coming back from camping and saw a tiny wolf cub along this road. Pure black, blue eyes, really cool to see. Thought it was a dog at first, but after slowing down it was pretty clear that it was not a puppy you want to start petting.
