Question: Roads near Kamloops BC

I have a question for anyone in the Kamloops, BC area. How is the Agate Bay Road - Adams Forest Service Road for motorcycles? I'm planning a road trip for this Summer, and Google Maps is suggesting I take that road from Louis Creek to Sorrento.

I believe FastEddiecopeman is from there...........I have ridden all over southern BC with a friend from Abbotsford. He was my "tour guide" so I never paid much attention to names. Most of the roads are great bike roads.

I've ridden in that area, but I don't believe I remember those road names. Here's a link to a ride in the GENERAL area that is SPECTACULAR!

Is your 'plan' to ride some dirt, or just go places...?

My plan is to go places, but take scenic routes whenever possible. I've never done dirt or gravel before, or long distance highway rides either. I suspect I'll be better off riding the main highways through Kamloops...

Beautiful photos of your trip, looks like it was a blast!

I don't have the same maps here in AZ as I have in BC, so I thought you were asking about dirt roads up NW of Salmon Arm. Can you be a bit more specific about where those roads are, as I PROBABLY have ridden them.... ie - "Adams Forest Service Road for motorcycles..." sounds like dirt to me, as I'm pretty sure ALL FSRs ARE dirt.

I can pretty much guarantee that the route you showed is dirt, after the first few miles at the S end.



On the other hand - every now-and-then BC surprises me w/ pavement that I wasn't expecting.
