Angel Falls, BC - The good stuff.

Honestly one of my favourite sections of roads i've yet ridden in BC. So good I did it 4 times, didn't capture the first one though! Just thought I would share the joys of the Versys on an extremely enjoyable section of road. Its hard to find flawless riding surfaces in Canada where I have a decent level of trust in the road surface.

I also didnt even see the AB guy on the Ducati until he was beside me, I was focusing on my line!

My ambient sound recorder is out of action so no engine noise!

Hmmm not sure why it would be unavailable... It still works for me through the link...


Hwy 6, about 30-45mins east of Cherryville! Its hardly even a location, there's a narrow bridge, a couple houses on the left side of the road and an old shack on the right, with a speed warning for curvy roads ahead!

Yeah the first guy scared the **** out of me, not gonna lie. I was leaning into the mirrors and couldn't see anything behind me and all of a sudden he was there! I had a higher level of trust in that road than I have for most around here, but those guys were on another level of risk... Granted they were in leathers whereas I wasn't... As well as on super sports, but still... I saw a deer on the shoulder of a blind corner on my first run through... Wrong roll of the dice and you're at least an hour away from a hospital by ambulance...

Try clicking on the YouTube link at the bottom right. Initially I got the same video unavailable, but that link opens another tab and you should be able to watch it.

I wish they would do that more often around here.... Unfortunately our government has this utterly inane objective called "Vision Zero" meaning they want zero deaths on BC roads by X year... AKA dumbing down the complexity of the roads and installing avg. speed cameras to completely suck the fun out of having a drivers license...

There were "fun ripples" on the side of the tire when I got home for sure!

After watching the video (thanks to 'whoever' mentioned 'clicking' on the U-TUBE name to see it...), I can say that I don't remember how many times I've ridden THAT road [BC 6 between Vernon and the Needles Ferry], but it's a LOT.

Did NOT know anything about Angel Falls however.

Its the group of houses and the shack right by the bridge where the lunatics pass me! Just a tiny little nook!
