    Kootenay Gut Buster 2017

    FJR Commander, my first trip there was 2013 on a WCR ride. What a blast! It was in Crawford Bay then, about an hour north of Creston. Absolutely gorgeous. I'm riding out with my oldest son & 2 neighbours of mine to try out the Creston site. It's right on the edge of town, so it won't be quite as...

    WCR 2015 - Any interest out there?

    Wow! This has been silent for ages! I've moved since my last WCR (2013) & have all new roads to explore. Am planning a trip thru the Duffy Lake road from North Vancouver on my way home in early July with my oldest son. I'm going to the Kootenay Gut Buster at their new Venue in Creston, BC at the...

    CFR 2015 is still in Nelson, BC and is still July 16-19

    Ack! Scheduling conflict! I wish I could go, but I'll be down at the coast visiting friends & family, then blowing right by there on my way to the Kootenay Gut Buster for the July 24& 25! Busy times trying to make up got 5 months of snowed in! Have fun all!

    WCR 2015 - Any interest out there?

    Hi Barb! Ltns! How are you folks? I'd be interested in a mainland cruise, not big on those over-priced cruise ships you folks are stuck with! I'm off the the Kootenay Gut Buster Comedy festival at Crawford Bay again this year, July 24 & 25. It's a hoot & a half & there are LOTs of exciting ways...

    Throttle Body Sync Photos

    Ok, I am having a good day today! When I synced the throttles the other day, I got too caught up in the actual vacuum generated. As I've since discovered, that's somewhat irrelevant. I read through my service manual thoroughly & the manual said, & I quote: on page 3-9 "If the air screw was...

    Milky final drive oil

    Maybe it's the Yamalube. I stay away from factory oil/fluids & use Motul full synthetic in the engine & final drive. Of course the mineral oil that was changed out until the break-in period was over was pretty gross, but now the engine/gear oil comes out in pretty fine shape & I get the added...

    C'mon folks! Riding season is here! Some of us need a bit of advance notice to squeeze a ride over to the island into our busy touring season! Barb! When are we invited?!

    Kootenay Gut Buster

    Hey, a visit from family is a valid excuse Mark! ;) It is too bad their timing was off though, it was a hoot! We even had room for 1 more in the chalet! Next year. Another run somewhere this summer sounds good. I have a good excuse next week for several days, my grandsons are coming to visit...

    Kootenay Butt Buster

    Holy cr*p those mosquitos loved me! I'm really glad I bunked with KamAl in a chalet! I'd have been trapped in a 4' tall tent other wise! In spite of the bugs it was 1 heck of a fun weekend! I'm going again next year! :)

    Kootenay Gut Buster

    Thanks Al! You got more than I did! I had a fantastic time there, as well as getting there & home again. I agree that Marija was often funnier than many of the comics! You made a good rommate too! Here's a few that I managed to take: Cory Harding Marija & Santa! Marija & Shadowstalk...

    Kootenay Butt Buster

    @ Griff Again, it sounds fantastic! Unfortunately my disagreement with cancer 2.5 years ago has left me with a digestive tract that won't even allow a coffee anymore, let alone a fine beer & some natchos. I appreciate the gesture, but will have to enjoy it all vicariously through the rest of...

    Kootenay Butt Buster

    I'm staying in New Denver (I love that little town) Thursday, will roll into KBB around noon Friday. As Al said, I'm one of those "whacko" vegans Griff, but thanks anyway, I'm sure it's great! Old age is definately setting in here, I've just recently realized that what I still call camping...

    Kootenay Butt Buster

    I just called Kamal, probably a good thing to tell him I'm camping rather than sharing a chalet. I guess I spent too many years camping, scouts & all, to sleep indoors when a new tent is available! Looking forward to meeting all who are joining us! WCR was a hoot! Many new friends.

    Kootenay Butt Buster

    Thanks buddy! I think I'll take one of them. Tenting sounds more fun than under a roof! ;) I hope all of our Calgary members stayed dry & undamaged during the recent unpleasantries! See/meet you there!

    Best of WCR

    Great shots Hudson! I really enjoyed meeting the crowd that showed up at Dave & Sylvia's place Saturday evening! What a hoot! Really fantastic folks & I hope we all meet again soon. Take care out there & have a great summer on the road!

    Tourmaster jacket

    Road Toadz ordered. It really burns my ass to buy a rain jacket to protect my "waterproof" Tourmaster jacket, but I plan to ride a lot this summer & that means riding in the rain. Won't ever be buying stuff from Tourmaster again.

    Tourmaster jacket

    Thanks for the reply Kirk. I too have ridden in cold weather & am very satisfied with this jacket for that use. I guess what really pisses me off is that Tourmaster advertises this as a waterproof jacket. Obviously their definition of "waterproof" differs from mine. Other than the leaking in wet...
