Paul from Touratech thoughts on the New 2013 BMW F800GS


Thursday, 29 November 2012 12:46 Paul Guillien and Staff
I really like how Paul describes this bike of ours.  I agree with everything he says and although we have not taken this bike off road yet I know we agree with his assessment as well. When he states the bike has a lean look that is one thing we LOVE about the BMW.
I should and probably will review the BMW 650, Triumph Tiger 800XC and compare it to the new BMW F800.

Paul Guillien, Touratech-USA’s General Manager, shares his thoughts on BMW’s updated mid-weight adventure bike, the 2013 F800GS. Continue reading

Tacita T-Race Electric Enduro: Tested at Morocco


Do you think we will ever see a HYBRID motorcycle?  Makes sense doesn’t it?  Half gas half electric?  I think that would sell more if the industry came out with a hybrid version.  Using electric power at certain speeds and gas to recharge the battery at higher speeds.

Eagles Everywhere!


This is what I saw and heard on Nov. 26th 2012.  I was in the background of this great photographer Sasse (Make Sure you watch in HD)

View from Killby Bridge Harrison Mills Sunday Nov 26th 2012
Feel Free to Share
At around 8am at a distance of about 500 yards these eagles could be seen from Kilby bridge across the Harrison River. Some interested people stopped and had a look as I was filming. ( I was one of the interested people ;-) )

BALD EAGLE HEAVEN!


November 24th & 25th 2012 (click on pics for BIGGER high resolution versions)

One thing that I do alone because Cheryl does not share this passion is every year I go out to Harrison Mills, BC to see the almighty Majestic Bald Eagle. I also ride out each year as well.  On Saturday I counted 10 other bikes on the road, today only 1.  Temps started out at 2 C or 34 F and got as high as 7 C or 44 F.  Best time of year to ride, heated liner, gloves, good base gear, BUFF hoodie under my helmet and good socks.  Awesome!

Since joining BC Transplant last January I really enjoy my time away from work.  When we are busy managing cases for work it’s easy to put in 30 hours straight.  The time I get to ride for fun and engage in my hobby like eagle watching is rare while off call.  This was a great weekend!

Thousands of eagles come here to BC and have a feeding frenzy on the dead salmon who have spawned. Hard to get a close up with my iPhone. The gray skies don’t help either. A bird watchers paradise!

These are the most AMAZING photos of a mother Hummingbird and her babies I have ever seen!  Fantastic! The videos are even better!!!!

After having nesting house finches with 5 babies on my front door, a neighbor who enjoyed that saga Email’ed me about a hummingbird nest at a nearby golf course. I have some old pictures of colorado hummingbirds, but had never seen a nest.
It’s amazing how well camouflaged it is – would have never seen it if it hadn’t been pointed out to me – thanks Brian!
Be sure to scroll down as the pictures get better … and check out the Hi-Def videos at the bottomwant prints?
