Late to the Party...

But it's always fun to party with you.

Missed you on Canada Day this year, eh?

All the best...

All the best, guys! Thank you for stopping by. Sorry you didn't reach your destination. I guess I kept y'all too long with my chin-wagging. Be safe out there... and post more pics!

Glad that worked out. Don't forget the good folks at ProCycle! They've bailed me out on the DR650 before...and the nice thing is that they're in OR so any breakdowns in the PNW is a day's shipping away!

Keep enjoying your adventure and thanks for posting!

Hey GISdood: Thanks so much for your gracious hospitality. The two weeks went great except for the rain. The cooler temps did keep the skeeters at bay. Remember, if your in the Okanagan, you're welcome to crash with us. You will have to sit through the slide show though.
PS I didn't take you for a head-banger!!

Great report Kelly, we are sitting here on the front deck of friend's house in Pender Harbour ,BC watching the rain and Texada Island off the front.

Saturday we head to Powell River, Comox , Campbell River ( hope to meet Gunnerbuck at Timmy's for coffee) and then on to Port Hardy, Rupert,Haida Gwaii, PG.

Keep smiling, ride smart and dry.

And as long as you have cold beer on hand, you can make us watch as many slideshows as you like!
No problem Kelly. By now we're usually bitching about the hot it is. I'm just happy it went a whole day without raining. Cold beer's awaitin.

Thanks again!

Hey guys! Sorry to hear of your mechanical misfortunes... HONEST, it wasn't ME! LOL

I guess they don't call the penninsula a "rain forest" fer nuthin'. I was sure hoping you'd run into better weather though. It should be better on the eastern side of the state.

You're certainly welcome to crash here any time you like. As I post this, I sit with the Katoom loaded for bear, looking out the window at a gray, misty sky. We're headed out this morning to Winthrop, Wa., where we'll take a bit of a camping/flyfishing respite before heading up to Nighthawk and the start of our Washington Backcountry Discovery Ride.

I appreciate the kudos. If any of you ADV folks are heading this way All Moto Tire will be off for a week doing the WABDR ride, and then the following week we'll be in Stevenson, Wa., for the Rally in the Gorge.

All the best,

Don
