Maybe Rellik can chime in... I believe he was going to fight it, but don't know the outcome.

That said, I have passed cops in different places while standing- the stock SE seat was a pain in the butt (literally) on longer rides- and haven't had an issue so far. I think he just got a real dick of a cop

Now, if he was standing on the seat...

It's shocking how many people on bikes don't have their license.

same in the USA... so many people ride, and so few have the "M" (motorcycle) endorsement on their license.


So what happens if i get a ticket? Will they not let me out of the country until I pay it or...?


Can they pull you over around here without "probable cause"? (P.C. is what cops in the USA have to have to legally pull you over - they have to have a reason, such as you were speeding, broken tail light, etc... anything that breaks the law is probable cause, but they can't pull you over just to "check your license" etc.)

Yes and no.

For an infraction they need to have a cause. They can't say I think you were speed around the corner.

They can pull you over to check your plates and license. I've had it done numerous times in the past. Almost always early season.

IMO, I wouldn't attempt any wheelies and try to keep it within 10 km of the speed limit. You should be fine then.


Link to your ride report again. I read up to the Moab part on your other post in the trip planning section. I'll be riding the CDT in less than a month. I'm going to cook!

If you want to go for a beer or something let me know. I like hearing about trips!

I wouldn't worry about that, the court date will probably be at least a month away.
If you don't pay it, they may send a collection agency after you eventually.

That's what happened when Roxy got a speeding ticket in CA.
We were sent a notice when we got back here, she just paid it intead of dealing with the hassle.
AFAIK, if you get a multi-nova (photo-radar) ticket, they don't bother with out of country plates.

Oh yes!! We have red light cameras, speed on green cameras, and now, a fancy noise camera.

Lame.

Most times the light cameras don't work though. haha. At least the one on Beddington.

Not sure how many people link directly to this thread or review the regional forum, but making sure everybody has seen this and attempt to get more interest in it. I hope to get around 12+ riders (3 in each group minimum).

I'm open to opinions, suggestions, etc. Maps will be released to joining parties one or two weeks prior to ride in a GPX file (Garmin!)

Ride is planned for August long, but there may be some preference to the Horizon Unlimited Meet dates set around August 26th

Ride will be starting in Longview area (possibly Cattarract or even Indian Graves)


South East B.C Dual Sport Group Ride.

They can definitely pull you over for no reason and they do. When I ride the bobber I built and especially it seems if I am just wearing a tshirt when my tattoo sleeves are exposed I get pulled over all the time "just to see who I am" as several cops have put it. I don't have a single demerit or even a parking ticket for that matter, but they seem to love having chats with me pretty regularly. Thank god I'm really good at spotting them before they spot me when I misbehave! I've even had a cop follow me for a considerable distance all the way to my home and then question me in my driveway.

In May of 2005 my bike plate was run 15 times in that month alone and pulled over 3 with no ticket given. I know a couple of cops and asked one to see if anything comes up on me and that is what he came back with. He said I even had a case for harassment! So yeah, they can pull you over just to check you out. It's bullshit, but it is what it is.

Good luck!

sounds like small-town stuff in the USA... big city cops will still follow you and look for ANYTHING to pull you over, but usually only if you're on a sportbike. Big bikes like mine usually get ignored.


Love to catch a beer with some locals... I'll be up till about midnight every night except Wed. night - gotta get some rest and leave early.

Some of the nights i'll be out with guys from our company, but not all of them.

PM me your number if you want and i'll give you a holler.

Ride on down to MOAB... I'm sure they'll share their 118deg weather with you freely. Its only an easy three day ride. about 375mi each day or so.

Backtrails from Calgary towards Fernie or Nelson for 2-3 nights ?

Had some great day long rides this year riding DRZ400S . McLean creek a few times including Ware creek in South. Waiparous Transalta to the end of the path in the park near Blackrock mountain. Indian graves was great with snow cornices above the road at the pass and breaking through the rotten ice on the creek crossings on the trail south of the road.
Now, looking for trip suggestions. Want to adventure for a few days before the end of June heading south and west of Calgary. Logging roads and singletrack preferred but can ride the slab as necessary. Could get on the FTR west of Longview and head south and west on the most primitive trideable tracks heading in the right direction. Want to spend 2-3 nights staying in cheap motels along the way as available. Any reccomended routes , or preferred trails would be appreciated. Thanks!

There are a few, but I'm thinking you might still have issues with snow.

Many of the passes you have to wait till Mid July to ride.

PM me and I can do some quick GPX of the trails. I refrain from posting them since I always give a warning that they should be rode with safety precautions. They aren't use much and if you break down up there you might be walking out, or worse camped for many days.

I just got back from a trip to Moab, and it was HOT. Once I get a chance to process the video and hundreds of pictures I'll do a ride report. I think I am actually beginning to like sand riding (probably the heat getting to my brain).



Payner on left and PabloX on the right. "Damn this sand is deep". Other noteable quotes from PabloX; " Wow, Gravity is FAST!" and "KTMs are Heavy". Me; "I think they miss-named this hill, it should be soft-scrabble, not hard- scrabble!"

Thanks for the pic Lycan1
What a sweet, sweet trip! Huge thanks to Lycan for organizing this trip and making it happen. Moab is truely a playground of awesome proportions and, while I'm still sore from riding that DR there and back (methinks a windscreen or fairing would be advantageous for the next long trip!), I want to go again!!!
