Are there any V-Strom owners in Saskatchewan? I have noted one in Carenport, but are there any more? I live in Melfort (3hrs north of Regina), and own a DL 650.
howja make out. some of my friends have been out and had really good luck. we went to Greenwater lake for the calling season and ended up with 2 for 4. Last year 4/4 and the year before 3/4, so have been doing ok.Here's one more in Saskatchewan, 2004 DL 1000 south of Assiniboia, loving it after many years without a street bike. I think it works great on gravel and our crappy highways. Hey I was just in the Cypress Hills hunting elk last week.
Thanks for the info. I loved traveling in SK and would love to revisit the area. Traveling across Canada was one of the highlights of our trip and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Although the trip via the Queens Hiway 1 was a bit boring - it was the only time I've been acrosss that part of Canada. The coolest part was - in the towns we stoppped in - we were the talk of the town. It seemed to us that not too many guys traveled across the territory on motorcycles and the locals really made us feel at home. That kinda reception makes you want to come back and spend time there.If you do head back to SK, think about going on hwy 18, which in the very southern part of the province. Fantastic scenery, badlands, etc. The pavement is decent, lots of curves, next to no traffic or ppl. As you probably discovered, the ride east from Moosejaw pretty much to Winnipeg is abit on the dull side. The Cyprus Hills in the Southwest portion of SK is well worth visiting as well.
Im sure our Saskatchewan friends can add more detail and hints on places to visit.
Depending on a final interview, there may be a blue Wee in Prince Albert by the end of the summer.Are there any V-Strom owners in Saskatchewan? I have noted one in Carenport, but are there any more? I live in Melfort (3hrs north of Regina), and own a DL 650.
You'll be going against the flow of traffic. The rest of Canada seems to be moving here!Depending on a final interview, there may be a blue Wee in Prince Albert by the end of the summer.
Does that help?
Foog, I'm gonna miss the all-year-riding weather of the wet coast if I make that move.
Rode across Canada on a Yam SR500 in 1978 and found this little funky restaurant out on the #16 Hwy somewhere between Saskatoon and Yorkton I think. Only thing on the menu was steak and it was run by an old Chinese couple. They told me the place had been their family for decades. The walls were lined with testimonials from all over attesting to the excellence of the steaks. I mean this place was in BFE nowhere. Anyone know of it 'cause I'd like to find it again and ride there for another steak?have you tourers ever been through central/further north sask while on your way through? you don't really get a good idea of what's here if you don't swing north of Saskatoon and ride through the forest for a while......everyone thinks sask is all like the view from the trans-canada highway, but boy are they wrong. just watch out for elk, bears, moose, deer,.....ukranians (politically incorrect, but some of my best friends speak a second language). love it up there.
