The Pink Boots Tour - Sin City to British Columbia

Last May I did a tour through British Columbia, touching Alaska at Hyder and Alberta at Jasper and Banff. It was 19 days of riding in country that I'd had passed through before on my GS or on some other two wheeled thing. This time I did it on a GL1800 and if you have wife that has done as many miles on the back of a bike as mine has, you'll understand why. If not, The GL1800 has a very big and comfortable rear seat.

Prior to departure I got a great deal of invaluable planning information from ADVriders on the Canada sub-forum. Basically the questions asked and the info received detailed a couple of the route legs that either required a ship or that were otherwise Goldwing iffy. Considering the weather and BC Ferries route changes going into Bella Coola, this 'local' info saved my ass and maybe my marriage.

Anyway, here's a post thats gonna have a few videos. The first three are going up today. I hope you get something out of them if you're planning on going up to the frozen north.

Pink Boots Part 1 (Sin City to John Day, OR)



Pink Boots Part 2 (John Day, OR to Penticton, BC)



Pink Boots Part 3 (Penticton, BC to Nakusp, BC)



Cheers,

40-Mile
