Sure this'll make some people mad

In 92 I went to some club's outing where one guy asked me to video tape his bike.
I did not condone this action and would have taken the bike myself.

He insisted on sending his bike to the graveyard.




That evening he set the bike ablaze. He said all the parts were worn out,
but the handlebars were something he wanted to save.

I saw a clump of CB750 choppers in one corner, its a cool place to stop and have a look around. They claim to have 10,000 bikes there for parts and I believe it. That one photo is just Honda Street bikes partial section, next one is Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawa, then dirt.....
10,000 parts bikes? If they didn't think they were made of gold, they might reduce that inventory out the door, rather than let them rust into oblivion. But then, that's not unusual.

Where the road ends...

This is at the top of a tidal lake in the lower mainland. There was a lot of logging that went on here, so guys would bring vehicles in on the empty log barges that came back to civilization loaded with wood to use between cut blocks and camp. These cars are left all over. At the end of a 23 km logging road there is a hot springs right beside a RAGING river. cool stuff. I canoed up the 35 km's with mountain bikes to ride the road, there *might* be a backroad in. I'll have to explore this summer.





As far as I know, any of these abandoned vehicles could be taken outta there by a guy, just need something to float them outta there on.

woofer2609 screwed with this post 04-24-2012 at 01:26 PM Reason: added more info

Saw this at the top of Indian Arm in Vancouver. I was thinking about advertising it in the "Free" section on Craigslist

30 years too late, darn used to know some that logged up there. May be easy....find out who has the "license" up there, complain so they clean up their act and get the pickings.

But yeah way too much of that abandonned logging crap & vehicles all up & down the coast. There was some just above my friend's place in the Kootenays, took a while but she got it cleaned up.

I fixed it for you. Had one given to me. I bought a tube for it. That was more than it was worth. gave it away soon after.
