Having driven the Coq many times, I have seen a number of bikes on there in March and April. People think it is just fine to go up a mountain pass and don't think for one minute that there could still be snow up there.
I've been at the Manning Park resort in early Feb on my R6 :devillook. PP CT2s are great in the snow! :laughing

I say we find a good hill with lots of snow on it and bring our SUV's to see whose Metroposer does the best. I'll bring a book to keep me occupied at the top in my Forester while I wait for the rest of you to make it up. I would bet the farm on that. :D

Fine Print: Land Rovers need not apply. :laughing

I'm going to talk to my MLA about this. It is true, people are getting tickets for not having "winter" tires or chains for their bikes here in the interior. Oct 20th, this year it was 18C here in 100 Mile. Beautiful day, warm and sunny, clean and dry roads. I went for a ride, about 250 kms. I could have been written a ticket for this reckless behaviour. WTF!

Psh, ridiculous. I saw an abbotsford motorcycle cop pop a wheelie on city streets just a week ago.... if it's still wheelie season, i won't be mounting snow tires on my gsxr for at least another month or two! *cough*

There are sections of H/Ways in BC that require winter tires in good condition (fair condition will not suffice) as well as chains, one section of H/W 20 requires the use of chains (failure to use chains in this section will void your insurance) to descend or climb the hill.

While this is true, you will never see anyone ticketed for not chaining up unless they crash. In good conditions only big rigs chain up, in bad conditions only fools do not.

I've never seen a requirement for both winter tires and chains. The signs I've seen always said one or the other. Of course, it's possible I missed something or things changed...

And yup, that's absolutely correct about insurance being void in case of an accident and you not having proper tires.
