Anyone know of a nice river to ride? Or a lake with a track?

Ghost

There is usually a track on the ice on the river at the east end of Ghost reservoir. Look for it on the right as you cross the bridge heading west. I haven't been out that way this year yet so I don't know if it is in any shape to be ridden.

I think so!
There should be ice tires waiting for me when I get back to Canada.
The SO and I also got some heated grips from Santa. And fancy levers. :)
All the best to everyone in the new year!

Mounted the new GoPro Santa brought and did a quick test on the slippery roads this afternoon. This is a pretty cool unit. The 990 Adventure sounds good too!

Let me know when you're going if you want some company. I'm hoping to go Friday before the crowd swell.

Congrats on the GoPro - I have the H3 Black Edition and love it. So was the wheelstand with your new Mefo SE? If so, they seem to do pretty well in the wet and slush...

I have the same camera. The Mefo has about 4500K on it. Pretty decent traction that day.

Afternoon,

I picked up a XR650L mid summer this year and wondering if any owners of the same bike has done Daves mod to theirs. I have read a lot of the forums but its mostly USA riders. Looking for anyone in the local area that has done it.

PM if you wish and thanks in advance.

BTW, a thanks goes out to lycan1 for his tips on where to ride in the Calgary area, my wife and I had a great time on our bikes.
