Ahh, many lurk within your proximity.
A foot of snow in my driveway, I don't think a ride is in order.

The DSBC Noob Ride on March 23rd is a good place to meet riders. Also I would check out Horizons Unlimited since Grant is trying to have another series of presentations at Holeshot.

I stand up and be accounted for, but I ride a Ural. I go exploring slower and with more goodies than average.

Hey Andrew

My husband and I are new to the scene too and are slowly searching for places to ride on and off-road. Let me know if you ever want to go for a ride.

Happy to play tour guide Northward off the Sea to Sky. Lots of great riding close to the city, and temps are similar.
Be sure and poke about dualsportbc.com, and come along to the newbie ride in late March.

Nice work pissing off Tom. I've known Tom for years and I haven't pissed him off yet. Just be polite on DSBC and stick to riding topics. Keep your opinions to yourself and respect others. Also never get into a heated argument on the internet. It never works, observers can never tell which one is the idiot and you can't finish with a good round of fisticuffs.

The problem with volunteering in the motorcycle community is that it a lot of work and is pretty thankless. Most people tend to get burnt out and cranky.

Also isn't this site ADVRider not ADVB_tchfest?

Mike

Thanks everyone for replying.

I have had a great spring and summer riding and meeting people in the dualsport world.

Lots to learn and loads to see.

Cheers,

Andrew

Another tri-city advrider here.... I'm still new but I've been out on a few rides including the dsbc newbie ride and had a good time. Usually I'm the biggest ride out there (Super Tenere) and have come close to getting in over my head so looking forward to some BBF rides with other polycylindrical inmates.... I have knobbies for a reason but the Yamaha is no fun to pick up so I usually stick to FSRs and dual track and prefer to ride with company.

cheers
