‘Adventure Riding’


There has been a lot of talk recently about what the term ‘Adventure Riding’ really means. Is it blasting down a gravel highway on a fully loaded 1200cc motorcycle? Doing single track on a light enduro style motorcycle with nothing but a backpack? Or is it riding two-up with everything you own, ready to take on the next continent? We feel adventure riding is a way to exercise your creativity. It can be whatever you want it to be. So don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Reconnecting with Canada The North


Worth buying this video and sitting back in the warmth of your home watching  the Curbsyde Team of Joe & Flora Lloyd, Paul Mondor and Jesse Clark on their personal journeys to Tuktoyaktuk in the middle of winter on two BMW F800GS bikes.  I am going to have to review this video one day from an amateur’s preservative.  Very well done, HD, and as always in Joe and Flora’s videos you will learn something about the history and culture where they ride to and from.

Road to Barkerville – EP 4 of 4


Joe Lloyd and his wife Flora really produce such great ADV videos.  I have posted these guys before and this is another installment of their trip to Barkerville which is located here in BC just north of Quesnel.  Cheryl and I visited Barkerville this summer on the Triumphs.

We were told the back roads were closed so I find it amazing that Joe and his crew made up to Barkerville the back door way successfully.  Nice adventure they all had riding through Likely.

If you ever come to BC you have to go visit this authentic Gold Rush Town.  See below for more info!  Enjoy and just so you know I have emailed Joe directly asking about DVD’s for any of his videos and they are thinking about it but for now just an online download for the full video on their website.  Would anyone buy a DVD? Please comment…just curious because we would have all his travels.

2011 SHELTON VALLEY DUAL SPORT & ADVENTURE RIDE


Another great video from Curbsyde Productions. Sounds like they have this ride twice a year, one in June and one in October.  Would love to see about going out on the next June ride 2012.  This just looks awesome and I love the passion these riders have for the Adventure.  Cheryl and I have to go one day, I mean where are the women?  ;-) 

That is one purpose for this blog, it’s not only to share where we go but about all the other exciting events, riders and info that I can find out there and document it.  We also really want women to see that everyone can ADV tour and have a great safe time.
