Day 17 – Shortest Riding Day

I left my parents house around 1600 hrs yesterday to only ride to the Port Jeff/Bridgeport Ferry over to Connecticut.  I wanted to get close to MAX BMW in Brookfield, CT and be able to ride another short distance in the morning to be there when they opened. While in Stony Brook I got to […]

Last Day for our KLIM Adventure Trip

July 20th 2012 As you will see from the pictures you can tell the last day of our trip to Idaho and back was typical “wet” coast weather.  While riding in temperatures from 12 C to 42 C…basically low 50’s to triple digits in Fahrenheit, we almost had to turn the heat on for the […]

Homer and some of the Alaska Marine Highway too

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 […]

Picking up our Beemers today

***Maybe I will video and take pictures of our BMW pick up day!  After all, this is still part of the post report isn’t it?*** It is unknown if we will become the owners of the Tigers we rode for 44 days.  They will be dropped off at Western Powersports in Langley, BC so the […]


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 […]
