    Simon P, you did it again ! Another great trip. This one had a lot more challenges for me to face and that made it much more exciting. I must remember to get a sheep skin for the next trip! I noticed some people had a more comfortable and pleasurable weekend with theirs. Thanks to Simon P, Simon D, Gideon and John for the "Extra Fun Extended Ride". Good to see Donna and Mike and Mike and Bruce.

    The weekend was awsome! Great bunch of people to ride with and fine roads too.

  • MIke R.

    I would like to thank everyone for a great time this weekend what a great trip, roads that were perfect for bike riding. Great group of people that I would ride with any time. I tell you how great they were, Sunday morning Simon, Simon, Trevor and my self pushed my Harley 200 yards up a steep hill so I could ride it down to pop the clutch to start it. Way beyond their duty! The second day my beautiful Harley did not start again and again they came through, Simon D thankfully had a set of booster cables, which was better then pushing it back up the hill. Thanks again, you don't know how thankful I was, next time that Harley will start. :))

    We ended putting a little more mileage on the bike than expected. SE of BC has amazing road for motorcycle. Thanks to everybody who showed up, i had a lot of fun with all of you. A special thanks to Gideon, Trevor, Simon D. and John, whom made it extra special with an unplanned getaway :)

    Thanks Simon for an amazing trip. I now see with the right gear and tires, rain only adds a new dimension to an adventure. Also riding on the sides of the tires is an exciting way to travel.

      I will admit I was gently pushed this weekend. An incredible and exciting experience. Thanks for the push into a new dimension of riding.

  • Donna

    Mike and I got really lucky weather wise. We left Saturday. Was great all day. Just a few brisk light showers. Same with Sunday with few brisk heavy rain periods. Mostly great for us. From Kaslo 2 Mike's and I went to Nelson then back to Creston via Kooteney pass got back at 5 ish. But other guys went to we think Vernon. It's now 11;30 pm and they aren't back! Delays due to their weather and had to in Castlgar instead.

    May 19, 2014

  • Mike G

    Little mist in the air and cloudy sky means empty roads. And if it really pours there's always the bar.

    Nothing tastes better than a cup of coffee after a few hours in the rain... and you can warm your hands on the hot mug too! Perfect weather is boring :)

    May 15, 2014

  • Simon P.

    OK, then with Mike Ives and Craig Out, I'll cancel one of my room.

    May 15, 2014

  • Simon P.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I will not cancelled the weekend. Rain is supposed to start in the evening tomorrow, so we should be able to get out of town dry. Creston will be waiting for us with a nice 25 degrees. On Saturday, 19 degrees, 40% chance of rain with a total accumulation of 1mm. And on Sunday we're talking of 2-4mm of rain. So, please let me know by 8PM tonight if you're not coming as i won't have access to the website after that. I'll provide my cell phone number tomorrow morning.

    Passport, passport, passport... don't forget it :)

    See you tomorrow

    As of April 28, we're 15. I believe Mike R and Deedee are not signed up. Everybody is leaving on Friday AM, but:
    - Kevin & Deedee (camping) will ride later on Friday, but will join us on the US excursion.
    -Janos +1 (camping), Donna & Mike R will ride on Saturday and join us for the Kaslo ride.

    TV, MG, DS+MR and JB took care of their own reservation. I got 3 rooms for Bruce, Gideon, Mike I, John, Simon D and I. I still have a bed available for one more.

    April 5, 2014

    • Simon P.

      About $100/night. and yes there is camping in Creston, at the entrance of town I think. Let me know if I'm keeping a room for you or not.

      April 21, 2014

    • Janos G.

      April 27, 2014

    I have been looking at the rout for day2 to the USA. Further west to 6 and down on the east side of the lake is much more scenic.

    April 20, 2014

    • Simon P.

      We can look into it Friday night while we're relaxing at the pub. We would extend the ride by ~50Km which is not really significant.

    You're going to love the Flowery Trail... one of my favourite parts of the Selkirk Loop. I highly recommend the Flowery Trail Coffeehouse in Chewelah for a break.
