Have your raced it up Seymour?

What a lame road for that bike. Ross, I highly recommend baker in a couple months once it's clean and the snow has melted. But be warned there's little room for error on some of those corners and they can bite!

My intruder isn't running but the old man picked up a cbr 600 and the weather has been conducive. Just need to redo my licence and I'd be down for some epics.

The road gets properly good from Pemberton to Lillooet! I have a 2011 gsxr 600 I'm selling. I got into track riding a couple years ago and the costs started piling up quickly, that and I had a good scare like I never have on the bike. Maple ridge/Mission back roads I clipped a deers head with my foot at 80kph in a straight line. Seconds before were some good sweepers exiting wide open in 3rd. If I met that same deer in one of those corners I'm not sure I'd be posting anymore… I had to accept I am probably not one to ride a sport bike on the street with my inability to say no to some good twisties.

Rossco , I have a DR650 so I tend to ride where you probably don't want to .

If you do get to lillooet , ride the first piece of the road to goldbridge , just the first few kilometers up the hill after you cross the bridge river . Nice grade , good curves , very little traffic , and pavement so smooth . . . Would also be a great longboard run .

that, and kids. as such, my penchant for high risk endeavors has decreased significantly. not that one can't rip backroads reasonably safely, it's just other dipshit drivers out there i fear more than anything. that said, carving twisties on a sportbike is one of the funnest things i've done; no doubt about the appeal.

The last couple of days must have been awesome for riding. Supposed to rain tomorrow. :(

So where's a photo of you riding the bike in your sandals?
