Me (and wife) moving to Penticton in Sept.
Looking forward to riding this area more often.... every day, if possible....
Hope to meet up with some big bike adventure-type riders.
Perhaps i will require a 250(Yamaha, of course...) of sorts, as well?

Hi guys, Im trucking the dirtbike to Kamloops for the long weekend and looking for maps or trailheads and people to ride with. I've heard duffy lake is a good site but I'm having trouble locating it. I'm on a non street legal ktm and have 2 full days to fart around and explore. I do have liability insurance but no lights so I'm not sure if I'm permitted on FSRs?

Iam not seeing too much action here!
Next week, w/c 8/9 we propose a 4/5 day ride. Route would be Lillooet, Big Bar ferry, Gang Ranch, Alexis Ck, Chilko Lk circuit, Williams Lk, Canim Lk/Mahood Falls, Clearwater, Adams Lk, Vernon. Exact route @ date open to negotiation. Possibility of more challenging sections if desired.
Iam in Lake Country, ride a 2011 Tiger 800xc @ am familiar with most of the route. My companion has a 650 BMW.
Prefer we meet for coffee first. How about some evening? Suggestions please.

Landed in Penticton.
Got the big bike here. 470 lbs. 850 cc.
Anyone up for a back roads ride around the Okanagan area?
Weekdays are fine.
Me retired. ( read between lines, old, slow, not in much of a hurry ........ )

Wanna meet for a coffee first? No problem.

Welcome!

I am going to check out the road from Peachland to Douglas Lake sometime this fall, but I have committed to a longer trip next week.

If your interested we could meet for coffee at Bliss Bakery on the lake in Peachland sometime and head to Douglas Lake and back.

This group definitely has the most action. I'd recommend posting up there if you're looking to go for a ride!

Hey all, I'm hanging out in Penticton this week... I even brought my X-challenge along. Does anyone in the area feel like riding some gravel roads tomorrow?
