    Hi. Ive be redirected by a fellow Strommer who said you have some experience running the general altimax rear car tire. My issue is chain rub. Were you able to counter the chain rub on the tire effectively?

    Sorry did not see your post till today.... I take the freeway some mornings if the weather is not too bad, and I am early enough... I hate being on it much after 5:30 AM due to the driver stupid factor....mostly I take Zero Ave home as I work near the Airport and traffic is non existant... It would be a pleasure to show you some of these areas in the new year when all the Cristmas crap is out of the way,
    I bought my strom in the first August after I cam out here as well... there was no other bike for this region in my opinion....

    Cheers and Merry Christmas

    Stave Lake, you say? Hah, I have been meaning to go there for some time now. Perhaps Ill go there instead... I like your photo.

    Got to be honest - not too sure where some of these places you mention are. I mean, I know where Cultas Lake is, but will have to google Bridal Falls and the Powerhouse. This past summer was my first summer here in B.C.. Furthermore, I have only had my 650 since August so, I can't say I have been exploring much before then. But now, it's sort of all I have been doing.

    Do you take the free way to get to work in the mornings? I have seen one other Vstrom rider out there these days. Same colour as yours.

    Seems like you have been exploring - nice pics by the way. I must say, a little envious and jealous. Where was photo DCS_f3519 taken?

    You bet. Lately, I have been going through some service roads just east of mission but been to afraid because of getting lost and of snow to fully explore, but in the summer, I try to take it up to some nice hiking spots like Lady Peak and what not. Chilliwack has a lot of nice off road places like Chilliwack Lake, and Chipmunk Service Road. The past weekend I was there. Even though it was raining, it was still nice. I will probably be going again this weekend as I have never fully explored Chilliwack Lake service road fully yet.

    If you are even out and about, give me a shout. I know a lot of people have put their bikes away, but I'm still a ridding. In fact, I work in Surrey every day.
