250 KM’s of Back Roads


Amazing ride from Lilliooet, BC to Williams Lake behind the scenes.  No traffic….awesome!    

Oasis Cafe


We just love these small mom and pop restaurants. Waiting for breakfast after a chilly night camping. We stayed warm but got down to 6.5 C. Making our way eventually to Dawson Creek.

More Expenses


As someone pointed out on the ADV Rider forum 44 Days – we also had free lodging in Anchorage for 4 nights so that brings us down to actually 40 days of riding. Gas and Lodging $2447 + $1664 = $4111 / 44 days =$93.43 per day / 2 people = $46.71 a day per […]

Gas expenses for Both Tigers


$1663.37 We thought it was going to be much higher.

Lodging and Camping Expenses


Total for 44 days is:  $2447 This can be done for way less if we camped more. The weather did not cooperate in the way we like to camp. Rain does not fair well with us sleeping outside.  We had to remind ourselves this was our vacation too, an easy way to justify a motel. […]

Some STATS and our Plea


Here are some stats, over 220,000 Facebook views of our page, over 180,000 hits to our ride report on the ADV forum and almost 37,000 unique hits to our BLOG. We are really short of our goal. $5 for half of these folks would be HUGE. Think about it and learn how to donate right […]

BMW Pick Up Day & First Impressions


August 16th 2011 We went to Western Powersports in Langley to pick up our bikes this morning.  Funny thing is the manager did not know we were coming.  Communication issues we guess.  I tried to inform the dealer what we thought needed to be looked at and more about the stalling concerns.  So, hopefully while […]

FINAL TRIUMPH TIGER 800XC REVIEW AND OUR GEAR


August 14th 2011 By Cheryl & Leslie After riding the Tigers that were loaned to us by Triumph Canada for 13673 KM or 8496 Miles we both feel confident that we have an informed opinion. We spent 44 days on the some of the harshest roads we have ever ridden on in BC, the Yukon […]
