Terrace BC, Thornhill Mountain, the link to the entrance to the road leading to the top.

https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&l...02642&t=h&z=19

A rough gravel road but the view from the top really worth it.

The start of the road!


Overlooking Terrace's Airport




The top!

I got behind some guy who was moving WAY TOO SLOW so I cut across the cones and headed straight for the entry/exit point. People at the gate told me that I looked like a speed boat with the rooster tails coming up behind me. Then I hit the point just before the rise onto the pavement and the ground dropped out from under me. The water was up above my heads on my 1150 ADV. I had enough momentum to carry my up the rise, though. I also, apparently, had enough momentum to carry me a couple of feet into the air. I managed to land it, threw my feet down and came to complete stop on landing. I got an ovation from those who saw me. I played it cool and just drove off with a wave. Truth be told, it scared the shit out of me. To this day, my pipes are discolored because I rode the 1.5-2 hours home with the salt still on the bike. Washed it up as soon as I got home but my exhaust is still discolored.

Thanks and sorry for a late response.
Helmet is AGV AX8, it's the best one one I ever had or even tried. Perfectly shaped for my head, 1,1kg, carbon-kevlar, fabulous ventilation.
The tire setup in the video is front MCE Karoo and rear Mitas e09. I was testing the Mitas but it didn't convince me at all and I still prefer the original Karoo. Which btw is now seriously threatened - see the fb page in my signature.
The Mitas isn't that bad in off-road, however it has significantly less side grip compared to the Karoo. But it's really scary on colder (below some 12 degrees C) or on the wet tarmac... With my riding style both of the tires last more or less the same which means, that the "elephants" win safely.
