I had my solo trip to Calgary and back and had a wonderful time. The bike was performed beautifully (as if anyone doubted it)!
I headed out on the #3 and stayed at motels in Midway and Cranbrook. In Alberta I took the #22 up to Black Diamond, zipped over to Bragg Creek and then into Calgary.
I stayed with my folks for 7 days and they were horrified that I would come such a long distance not only on a death machine but alone. I guess I should be extremely lucky that I'm not maimed or ravished. Hmm, let me rethink the ravished part......
The return trip was a lot of fun. The first day I headed over to Banff, dropped down to Radium Hot Springs and popped back up to Golden. The next day, I went to Revelstoke and again headed south to Nakusp and then over to Vernon. Wow - that #6 from Needles is FUN!
Then I took 97 to Kamloops, headed south to Merritt along the 5A. Popped over to the 97C and headed north again to Cache Creek. My last day, I took the Lillooet, Pemberton, Whistler route home (of course stopping in Squamish for a coffee).
The only mishap was dropping my baby beast in the parking lot in Golden. Yes, I broke the signal light housing but the light still functions. It is now beautifully decorating with duct tape.
I want to thank everyone for the advise. It was nice knowing that I had comprehensive tool kit and it all fit under the seat!
I definitely will do this again next year!!
