Although I'm a little too far from the West Coast to hook up with ya for a ride, welcome to SBW! It's always good to have another Canuck aboard.

Talking Canucks RULE!

hey ya never know we measure distance in kilometers and hey i like to cover as many as possible in the warm months so who knows i may be inspired to cross canada or wherever my katana carries me. I have a tendancy to hop on and go for rides to wherever the hwy looks most fun. last summer i went to edmonton for the weekend just to get out and see the sights.

welcome to S.B.W.

I'll be going thru Penticton this summer. My parents are buying a place in Oosoyus (????whatever) and I hope to drop in for a little golf this spring. Then there's this other ride going on later, to Mt. St. Helen's w/ some other S.B.W. people (look for a thread under Pacific Northwest Meet, or something like that). Then there's this soccer tournament in Kimberly. Then there's Sportbike world in Kelowna (I've never been, but always wanted to go). then.....

Basically any chance I get this summer, I'm heading west. The roads out here are too boring. The only prob. w/ BC is that RCMP seem to take speeding a little too personally.

The older I get,
The better I was.

It definitely is. For some reason another site similar to this (no need to mention names ) has a much bigger Canadian presence, which is too bad since I prefer this site. I think it's time all the Canucks stood up and boosted the Canadian content of SBW. Wadda you all think?


And oh yeah...we should start off by petitioning the SBW moderators for our own forum. I haven't seen too many Mexican threads in here.....

It was, but the cops got a helicopter last summer. One of the 1st things they used it for was timing bikes going thru Groot Rd so that the cruisers on 107 ave could nab em. They nailed something like 21 riders in the 1st couple hours.
