(near Trans Canada and Hwy 5A) just to keep everyone together. This ranges from a Days Inn, Quality Inn, Pacific Inn, Comfort Inn, and a Four Points Sheraton if you want to feel luxurious.

Terrific job on the video Mike. Those roads you have selected look great.

Oh, and you show some real potential as a cowhand the way you herded those beasts along the trail.

Now a question about your methods ... some interesting camera angles used, mind showing us how?

It's really simple actually. Most of my shots are from a tripod that has it's neck extended while strapped to my camera knapsack. Some of the side shots are from a monopod strapped to my luggage and extended out to the side. I'm not a big fan of shooting with a camera mounted on my bike. Too hard to isolate vibration on the gravel roads. I do have helmet mounts but they interfere with the flip face.

Thanks, Manx. Everytime I come across a cow on the road I remember a story a friend had from an off-road race a few years back. He was racing the Monkeywrench Cross Country up near Lytton, when he burst into an open area on the course and startled a cow there. It decided to high tail it out of there by way of the only way out, which also was part of the race course. So for a short time my friend was neck and neck with a Holstein...

...Until it body checked him into a tree. He then spent half an hour getting his bike back on to the race course.

I never trust those creatures, they just might one day want payback for all those burgers I've eaten.

Mike

I know it will be tons of fun, but I don't think I'll be able to make it out for this one..... Enjoy your desert heat, I'm heading for the far north in early August!!
I have just over 2 weeks off to play with, so I plan to ride thru BC to the Yukon, and if.....IF I make it that far and it feels good, I'm going to try for Inuvik!!! This will leave me very broke indeed......Have fun guys!

Mechanic, if you make it out to the Island this year, give me a shout! I'd be happy to show you around.

So many plans to make. Anybody staying in a hotel who wants to share? I might camp this time since I won't have to carry all my gear but I could easily be persuaded to hotel it

BTW I'm not particularly shy as most of you know so I will share with a guy. Don't worry, you'll be safe...........probably.

Q: How can you tell it's a long weekend in BC?
A: The weather goes down the toilet. :(

I also just took delivery of the official BCBATR Sweep Truck...
