Okanagan Riders

Check in if you are in the Okanagan and enjoy dual-sport rides. I realize that the Canadian section of ADV is somewhat lame in comparison to the main site but who knows who could be lurking out there. Are there any groups that get together for the occasional ride? I ride a 1200 GSA. Nothing overly serious but enjoy road trips and FSR. Maybe a few folks want to get together for group rides? I'm in the Vernon area.

Sounds like a plan Motardca. I know the Geezer. What do you mean "were you the reason for his mishap?"

I am just in the process of leaving the flatlands behind and moving to the valley permanently in mid-June. Once I get organized, I'm up for some rides.

I have done a bit of riding in the area, but am always on the lookout for some more good rides.

Let me know what your up to.

There is an event in August called the "Loose Screw Dualsport". There are a couple of rides laid out for the big bikes. There is camping on the river just east of Kamloops and a wind-up steak dinner too.

More info here: http://www.dualsportbc.com/forums/sh...ual-Sport-Ride

You guys are lucky. Buddy of mine a while back took me riding east of Vernon on a bunch of nice country backroads dirt and paved. Seemed to go on forever. Plenty of good stuff there.

I am in Salmon Arm and as soon as I get this CDI issue worked out I am in for some FSR riding.

Mara lookout/Hunters range anyone?

Looks like we could have the makings of a gang right here
When this weather gets more stable we should set up a ride. Anybody got any favourites? Throw them out here..

You know your way around SB? I'd be in for that.

Shuswap Biker - is that you Brian?

I'd be up for a rip up to Hunter's Range. I'm getting a little weary of the A-loop "dual sport" rides the regular suspects like to go out on, beats up the equipment, and the ribs!
