Had the day off so I headed over to the rock to do a bit of riding
with the guys I'm heading down to Moab with at the end of
September.

Saw these guys all lined up so I shot a few. I know, I know the
pics aren't great but I was tired.

So here's the beginning to our day. Actually the 2nd beginning
to the day because some asshole ripped the stem of his tube
5km in the 1st time.
58781

Boomerang.
58782

The skidder trail on the way out. Easy in a truck...a bit
more sketchy on a bike.(Especially my KLR)
58783

Yup. That's us.

Cruise ship hanging out in the bay before heading to Vic.

Coming home on the last ferry. The 10.45. Was a long day.

Cool, I used to have a KLR, great bikes, little heavy I found but my knee got messed up and couldn't hold it up off road. I shoulda kept it, it was an awesome street bike. [cheers]

Ya evidently I can't hold it up offroad either. I lost the front end and dropped her on my foot. I am thankful wear proper boots I can tell you that. I am fast learning that the KLR is not my KTM.:(

I have been riding in Washington, Oregon and all over BC but i have never ridden on the island. Dual Sport BC has quit a few members on the island and they host a number of rides, i will have to do one some time.

The island seems to have a good chunk of places to ride still. I think I will start doing some of the island rides as well. It's really not that far, even for a day ride. Except that the 10.45 doesn't run very often I don't think.
