Longing for the Open Road – Memories of our 2010 BMW F650GS Bikes


Since we seem to not be able to get away on a decent rode trip this year I am entertaining myself with pics from our 2010 Cross Country Trip…and other trips.  In 2010 we both got our first Beemers and we picked mine up in March 2010, Cheryl’s in Dec 2009.  By June 2010 we were off for 26 days to ride across Canada and the USA.  No planning just learned by ourselves what to pack and how to navigate ourselves. 

I hope we are tempting all you street riders to come to the ADV side of dual sporting….enjoy….

If you have 10 mins and want to take a ride with us sit back and enjoy this video I made of our BC back country ride this summer…this is only part of the 850 KM we did off road…Between Clinton and Lillooet, BC.

Picture of the Day


If anyone has been around the Parliament Building in Ottawa you will know what we are doing in this picture is not the most legal.  There is not parking or stopping in front of this building…the funny thing is I made Cheryl stop for a photo OP…but look in the back ground….RCMP cruiser.  Cheryl is a cop too!  oops!
