    I am being overrun by KTM's and BMW's. As usual I will be falling back into the mountains.

    If you don't find yourself enough riding buddies in Western Canada, come on down and meet some of us Washington riders. We're all meeting up in mid May if you're interested.

    I'll be in Western Canada tomorrow, we're (Star Chapter) riding to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary (no, you can't bring rifles)

    Hey TW Trooper, we aren't home right now but we are almost as "western" as you can get. We live on northern Vancouver Island but right now we are just completing our holidays with a tour of Ucluelet / Tofino / Sidney / Nanaimo and Courtenay tomorrow. Had some great rides on the west coast but chose to leave the bike in the truck in Sidney (crazy Victoria drivers!). We would like to do some riding out towards Hope area but wont happen until next year now due to lack of time off. Next big ride for us will be back home on May long weekend, group of family and friends are coming camping out at the lake. They all have Yamahas but no TWs, but I will wait at the top of the trails for their skinny wheeled machines to catch up!.
    If you ever find yourself on the North Island and want to do some great trail climbing, just give us a shout as we are game almost every weekend for some trail riding.
    Not sure if you have seen the members map yet TW Trooper but it shows locations for all over, just zoom in to your area and it will list all the TW riders around your area.
    I wish there were more TWs close to us for group rides, but I have only seen two other bikes up our way since we got ours in 2010, so most of our day trips are solo rides / fishing trips.

    Take care and ride safe, Chris.

    I even double the misses on it on two up outings and she seems to like it as well. I have pegs and risers coming this week as not to embarrass myself on the trails and expect to bump into one or two of you who frequent the lower mainland (Vancouver, BC, Canada)

    I will have a look at the member proximity page and start sending out bribes to attract riding partners. In fact the misses would probably pay $50.00 to the first person to get me out of her hair for a minimum of two days. Well it is a 5 am Sunday start to off to bed. Have a good weekend

    I had the pleasure of hosting a couple of fellows from Abbotsford and Surrey BC a couple nights ago. They were headed to Baja. One was on a Vstrom and one on a 600BMW. I put a notice for tent space on the ADV forum a while back and have had a few riders stop by for an overnighter. Always nice to share life in general with other riders.

    Somehow I can never use riders and bikers in the same context as bikers tend to bring to mind patch laden leather and asphalt eating V twins with belt drive.
