I usually do not plug other folks threads, but this one is exceptional - for those of you who really like some very nice moto-adv eye-candy, have a look at the video in this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...6&postcount=80

If that does not get you to jump on your bike and travel - nothing will!

Both the Kingdom Lake & Carol Lake campsites have shore fishing for Rainbows. Tyax Resort also offers camping & boat rentals. How do you propose to pack your worms?

Further to that, what about going in from Horsefly? That would fill a gap on my "bin there dun that" map. From Quesnel, there's a nice southbound west side road along the Fraser too.

That would be a good ride. There is a campground at Horsefly Lake.

That looks like an epic Ride Report.

Interested to join you lads for a ride at some point.

It is started, so now I will wait for others with more local knowledge to move this forward.

If anyone has so good/interesting/nice camp spots/fishing spots in the form of waypoints, but is not sure how to add them to the posted tracks, just post the LAT/LONG coordinates here and I will add them to the posted track as Waypoints.

As of July 5th, I'm offline for some exploratory kayak fishing in the Kootenays & winery inspections in the Okanagan. Back around July 25.

Carry on!

You will have to share your method of kayak carry on the bike..........but this is what the road may look like after the winery inspections.



Keep safe!
