Nah Bruce the 950 is going well,,as is my $59 "Fitted" rear tyre. (Kenda)

Lots and lots of people are asking me hey man can i take a picture of your bike, it seems they are even more rare over here than in OZ.

The Africa Twin wouldnt have the high speed legs for the freeways over here.

So im in Arlington Washington State at the moment. The Starbucks chick brings me out some Cinnamon loaf to try (Free) I says why not, & its bloody nice too.

The loaf that is....

I was downtown Seattle having some nice Atlantic Cod & chips & I turn around and notice that there are bloody GOATS right in the middle of the city, just happily feeding away right next to everything. Spun me out.


A nice horse & cart giving the touros a ride around the city.

Lots of bridges across lots of rivers in this area, all very green.


I managed to take an early exit off the freeway & came across old mates front yard.

What a sight.

Hey Hodgo, great pics. Glad you're having a great time. Still healing up and still can't work on anything ATM, just no strength in the arm. Probably be mid to late Aug if I'm lucky before I can ride again.

update 25/6/2013

Canada hey...... who would have thought that Canada is were i would be now.

Starting to feel like im really travelling now, especially the border crossing. Waiting in traffic for 35mins over heating, Just as well i made the fan switch mod to my bike. The clutch suffered a bit though.

The sample of Women began right t the border crossing with the border guard, she was hot as. The majority of women here are just stunning, i have to make a very conscious effort not to stare.
A few more of the border in Vancouver.


Not like a lot of the border crossings i have been to, Canada just begs for photos.


For some reason this brought back memories of my childhood when Australia converted from imperial to metric.

Me and my SE certainly raised a few eyebrows in the traffic as you could see people trying to make out which state my number plate (tag).

This is where i camped up the hill from Vancouver.

and yes its cold and wet.



So im stopped t RVDans place at the moment courtesy of the tent space thread. I have ordered my replacement clutch hose from KTM of which will hopefully arrive tomorrow or the next day.
Some of the locals are planning a run out to the island, so hopefully i can make it out that way with them.

So feel free to post more & lurk less.

Mate Vancouver Island is outstanding so if you can make the most of it, gunnerback lives out there and he knows the place like the back of his hand.

Watch out for big bears and wolves tho ... we had these fellas wonder through our camp

Looks like a good gathering. What seems to be the brand / bike of choice over there?

I have to say it but KLR seems to be the brand & the DR650. Couple had 640A.s and there was a sweet old DR750. Drz400, XR400 BMW800 & two BMW 650s one Dakar 650. Good variety of bikes.
