Hi Kore, there's always wind issues either in Sask or Alberta but BC is usually where it starts. I watch the weather pretty close and when I am out in BC and I usually either leave early or late to come east (home) just because of the wind. The last trip I even changed my route home just to go with the wind a bit instead of fighting it. Have you ever had your V-Strom out to BC? What year and cc is your Strom?
