Spending an Evening with VANCOUVER, BC


While Cheryl and I do not actually live in the city if Vancouver, we live near enough and I get the “pleasure” of commuting to this city at least a few times of week.  September 29th, 2012 we went on a wedding cruise at sunset and for me, Leslie it was actually the first time I got to see the city from a water view.

Cheryl every year does volunteering downtown Vancouver with the VPD and takes a bunch of kids on a tour of the worst and best parts of the city.  Trying to establish kids who will be leaders in their schools to understand policing and the real life drug problems out there.  Part of the kids tour is getting to ride on the VPD zodiac around the shore of the city.

We left the dock at Granville Island.  Very busy market place and huge tourist attraction. Continue reading

Cheryl’s Bike


20120929-083843.jpg

I’m testing out Cheryl’s bike while she sleeps! ;) Mine will be in by second week of October.  Was shipped from Toronto this past week.  Need to work a week on call and once I am off call I will see if the bike is ready around 13th.

NEW KLIM ADVENTURE GEAR REVEALED


Seems like the folks who ride in humid climates may have gotten their wish!
If you LOVE KLIM like we do we always LOVE reading about their new stuff…we will however, resist buying anything new until all their new gear gets a great work out by others.  One thing about KLIM is sometimes they release new gear without testing it enough.  Seems like a new generation of a released suit is right around the corner.  We found this out with the Latitude Suits we bought.  There were issues for us with the stiffness and the collar.  There is a new Latitude suit released as well and that suit has been out for not even a year.  Still LOVE KLIM, but will sit back before dropping $$$ on anything new.  We ride with our KLIM Traverse suite for now.

Jesse Mounts Check!


One thing that is good about having to remove luggage mounts from a bike is you get the chance to revive them.  A little BBQ paint and they are good as new.  These are Cheryl’s Jesse mounts before she reinstalled them on her 800.  I did the same for my future 800 that should be in hopefully in a few weeks.
