Living in WA, I'm close to the tundra line and venture across at least once a summer. Are there others that might care to join me? I am still learning the language and customs but seem to get around without mishap.

You shoould know I'm interested but vacation time is limited.

2 years, 358 days to retirement then my riding time expands.

Where did I hear that all ID retirees were going to be pressed into armed school guards? Just a rumor, maybe. Funny how those get started.

Triplee and I are in the (lengthy) process of getting our passports current, and are looking forward to visiting Canada (again)... Mexico, too!

(On the new Fjr, of course.)

A worthy steed, indeed. Does this mean you are now riding two up?

And does having a lady friend called Triplee give you claim to triple content in all your posts? I'm good with that, but then I'm just happy with content.

Where have you been in Canada? Do you camp or do clean underwear and motels?

I've been tempted by Alaska too, but Clint says it can't be done. Too much gravel he says, and bears.

Seems like a fellow could get shot down at the border crossing without the right paperwork, passports and the like.

"Two up?" No, probably not, Triplee is also looking at an Fjr...

My first expedition into the Great Nortlands was back in 1981 on my first XS 850. We went thru British Columbia past Banf and ended up at a small lake called Lac La Hache. What a blast, 12 days of beautiful, beautiful wide open scenery.

We camped when it was dry enough, stayed in motels when it was too wet.

Looking forward to doing it again!

If you make it to Vancouver Island give a shout. How that that CA dollar has the buying power of .50 US you may find travel in Canada a bargain.

I'd be happy to buy a few $ Canadian at that rate. A little closer to $0.92 US to $1.00 C, lest any are dashing to their bank. Still not bad from where we sit, but a long time to riding weather north of the tundra line.

Is it time to revisit this topic?

I'm out in Manitoba if you ever find yourself out this way. Give me a shout. Maybe come out for the motorcycle ride for dad. It's a fundraiser for prostate cancer. I think last year there was around 1500 bikes.

I appreciate the invite but wonder what Manitoba might be close to. Is there anything when you look out the window? Just fun, any chance you might make Sturgis this year? You are a little closer than me.
Good on you to support cancer research. I have to say I've given at the hospital, 9 years now.
I did 90 miles today, food, drink, all was merry.

No Sturgis for me yet. My bike isn't road worthy yet. Manitoba is also know as the land of 1000 lakes. Lots of nice lakes and wilderness, but the highways are pretty s***ty
