Hey how many of you out there are canadian? Where you from, and what do you ride?

If hitting water at 100 mph is like hitting concrete, what does it feel like hitting concrete at 100 mph?

There are a few. Smitty is probably the most frequent poster of them, that I notice anyway. I think he's in western Canada. Go to the Canada forum on here, there are a few here and there.

You are a little far from home. Many years ago I used to live out east in Oromocto New Brunswick. One of the few things I remember is Magnetic Hill.

Yes I am from Cdn. Use Western Cdn as a rough figure though in fact I am in a small farming part of what one might call the Okanagan Valley which is south east part of the B.C. interior. Sort of like following a street address when it is handed out to you.

I bet there is some good riding in BC. Not like here on the prairies.

Yes it is ALWAYS a challenge for there are so many narrow two-lane roads with a maze of ups & downs, bends to twisties THEN with tourists well one has to be on their toes from start to finish of the ride.
