Yeah... right.
And thanks for not editing music into it. I think it impairs the experience.

Edited: and congratulations on the bike and the nice ride!

Nice vid but that's forest road riding, not offroad riding.

My wife is from Chilliwack and wants to move back but the weather is too miserable for me. Your videos of the riding areas are helping her cause....except for the miserable weather.

BC weather is pretty wonderful compared to the rest of Canada. Chilliwack looks and sounds great to me!

Chilliwack has better weather than the lower mainland in BC...not as wet during the usual winter months, great access to great riding and cheaper to love than where we live and more west.

When and where the pavement ends, it's considered "off road"

Good on ya Soph.

also the bike is called an Adventure bike and the Adventure is all about the state of mind. I also think I had fun and my buddy Sheldon called me and said he would take me out anytime. He added he is glad I am getting the K60's cause he said I have "instinct",......need to practice my standing and gear shifting etc.......but I did well for my stock tires and first time out.

Cool2

smell the testosterone...glad you are comparing apples with apples...also, very impressed with your riding capabilities...did not know my videos would stir up a competition...lemme see....

my bike an Adventurer bike, weighs ummmmmmmmm....450 ish lbs, made for rough roads to see things off tar....exploring and having Kodak moments...your bike to prove you are a man.... Seriously though, your video has nothing to do with off road exploring....your video shows a competition as to who can ride the roughest terraine the fastest.



My videos show how one can go touring off road with a bike one would not want to dump.

Twin Rider, we're all so very impressed with you. We all bow to your superior ability. We are not worthy to share the same web space as you.

Please accept our very humble apologies as to having offending you about the phrase off road. We will have Webster immediately get to work on redefining the phrase and consult you before it is placed in the dictionary.

Once again. Deeply sorry, and as soon as i get the sand out of my vagina I will start building a monument to your greatness.

And everyone, please keep in mind before you post about enjoying your motorcycle that you must first watch his video and be mindful of any unfair comparisons.

Edit.... sorry, I just watched the video and realized that it is not Twin Rider in the video.

But let us still hail his ability to recognize off road riding even if it's not him. Everything else I take back.

Would off-tar be accepted? I'll take off my off-road tkc80 tires until we know for sure ... . I loved that bike when it was a dual , now I'm not so sure anymore. I'm depressed!
