northern trip

Hey, guys...great idea to keep us posted.
You'll love the ferry ride...remember though, the ferries do sink on that trip; stay near the railing! Plan your swim! Check to see who the captain is and if his former lover is doing the same trip... It's all part of adventure riding, yah??
I agree with Dale; too many Tenere pics! The KLR isn't getting enough media time!
So much wish I could have gone with you. Have a great time and work is waiting for you...G./KLR/RN

Day 2 ... the Deluge!

The morning started off partly sunny with cloud and mist in the air.
We headed south to Little Fort and then West to hwy 24. I saw a sign for Cappucino, so we made a quick detour to the coffee shop, which was a log building with spectacular view of Lac des Roches.
An Italian family owns the place, so you know the fresh Americano coffee and cake snacks were to die for.

From there, we took an alternate road past Green Lake recommended by the owner and found ourselves rounding about curve after curve with no one on the road but Dale (theBullseye) and I for about 45 minutes until 70 mile house. The rain really started at Green Lake and continued unrelentingly. From there we headed to Lillooet via hwy 99. The valley is spectacular in size and breadth and road curvaceous and technical.

Day 2 The deluge continued

Our last part of this leg today was from Lillooet to Pemberton which is rated one of the top 30 roads in BC. Not for the faint hearted or low slung foot pegs! Lots of elevation changes, rough and smooth tarmac, tight 20 km/h hairpin curves. Now toss in the most heavy rain we have encountered on our trip with water pooled roads and the Adventure was on!
This last leg was 100km and took over 2 hours to complete. All our gear was tested to the max. My right side Jesse pannier had about 1 liter of water in it.

Day 2

Today's Stats: 8 hours on the road, with over 6 in the rain.
I know we are capable to run almost any rainy condition after what mother nature threw at us.
Did we enjoy the day? Machines were flawless, superb roads and spectacular scenery ... what do you think
