Attention - Vancouver area riders!

Hello Vancouver and lower mainland riders.

Back in 2007 or so we had a group of local strommers who met for breakfast (usually once a month on a Sunday) and then did a small ride, 2-3 hrs we called it the “Breakfast Club – Northern Edition”. I believe the founder was BC-Bruce.

Let’s resurrect the club. A great way to meet locals and compare farkles.

I suppose we can ride out to a lunch spot instead of breakfast too

Everything from a 2 hr twisty Fraser Valley ride to a 10 hr Duffy Lake loop. There are some great Washington back roads as well.

We can post short notice rides here too...

Spring has spung! (at least in southern BC)

Sadly, BC-Bruce has sold his stallion (or was planning on it, last I heard a few months back).

But I'm still around. Anyone else?

I live near the border and am often looking for a ride. However, Sundays can be difficult for me so I probably wouldn't be a regular.

...we can always do a Saturday if it helps.

@ Larolco - I see Sharon and Bob haven't been on the forum for a few years.

Did BC-Bruce sell to get something else, or take a break from motorcycling?

Well I'm new to the v-strom, and relatively new to motorcycling in general. I do a lot of solo-riding, so picking up some more riding friends would be great!

I bought my '14 dl650 just this past October, but with the winter being so mild, I've managed to put on 6K or so. What a spectacular bike!

Cheers,
Karol (like Karl)

BTW - I vote for a Duffy Lake loop in the near future! I was up in Pemberton this past weekend... the roads were fantastic! And, the Mile One Eating House does an incredible burger. WA backroads would be great too, and something new for me!

I'm not sure what Sharon's up to, but Bruce PMed me a few months ago. I'm pretty sure he's bikeless now. He was in the process of selling his Vee. Maybe Sharon did the same?

Anyhow, onwards and upwards. I'll ride with anybody so long as they show up on time for breakfast. I'm never in any hurry. Experienced and inexperienced are welcome alike. I enjoy pavement and off-pavement, but don't need to do both on any particular ride. I'm happy either way, whatever the group decides. If a newbie needs a chaperone, I'm happy with that too, so long as the group settles on a plan over breakfast.

Good on you Karol! That's some serious Ks for an off-season.

Thanks for the update Dan.

Speaking of off-season KMs... and Sunday Breakfast Clubs... anything in the loop for this Sunday? Weather is supposed to be great!
