    JDROCKS is a balls-out, hardcore dirt road guy. To alaska and back on his ER6? Whoa.
    Anyway, he has some good ideas. And I LOVE his trip reports. The guy definitely knows how to setup his bike for the riding he's going to do on it.

    Hey, no problem. The site is a little tricky at times.
    You have cool islands to ride all over, how neat is that?

    I just sold my Grady White offshore boat to a couple up on Vancouver Island. Have a standing invitation to visit and go catch some salmon.

    One of the nicest places in the world, me thinks!

    Yes, my mother was American, Dad was Canadian. They met at a dance in Whiterock in 1955. They married and moved up to Vancouver and I was born a year later. Mom was homesick and Dad was tired of working at the steel foundry in the day and driving cab at night, so they sold the house and moved to Seattle. My two sisters were born there. I'm the oddball with the Canadian birth certificate. So that's my story. Dad never did naturalize, he had a greencard 'till he died about 7 years ago. We sure loved Canada though. I keep threating to move back if they don't fix things down here!

    My wife and I moved from the Seattle area to southern California in '92.

    Sounds like you should hook up with JDROCKS and do some adventure rides!

    Thanks for the note...
    From your username I just assumed you were in Sydney or something. You meet the nicest people on these forums.

    HEY! Just wanted to let you know that Shannon and I are heading over to Salt Spring Island in a couple weeks for some camping! We arrive on Thursday 26th and leave on the Sunday. I remember Shannon mentioning that you and your wife spend quite a bit of time over there- is that by chance a weekend you'll be there? It would be awesome to gert together for coffee or something! We'll be staying at Garden Faire campsite right close to Ganges, but we know there's a couple DH's and a TE we want to ride! (if you're familiar with Destination Highway books) so we could always meet you else where!
    Let us know! I'd love to meet you! (in person!)
