Bubba,

Good to see you again. This place has been dead for some time now. Nice to see someone try to breath much needed life back into it.

I hope you and the family are doing well, and weathering this current scary situation without any drama.

Hey Jim, good to see you!

Definitely looking forward to getting in some trips outside the valley soon (assuming we don't get locked down just as the nicer weather is starting up). Hope you folks are doing well.

But, yeah, let's get some good riding in this year!  Thumbsup

Glad to see that you're still kicking around and on two wheels!

Hey Bubba,
Good to see you back. Very little going on around here outside of the political sewer that I avoid like the plague.
How about we try to revive the WCRM  when long distance travel again becomes possible.

Another WRCM get together once this whole coronavirus issue is sorted would definitely be on order!

I've just started posting again after a long hiatus.    Seems an enforced work vacation leaves me not much to do.   I'm even entering the Politics forums  sewers.


Haven't been on a bike for a LONG time now.   Bad knee and a driving a convertible surrogate seem to take care of that.


You still living in the Kootenays or you move back to Victoria?

Hi Jim,
Thank you for bringing back some life in here. I'm looking forward to put some miles under my old Bird's wheels this year.
Haven't done much riding last year, since I was working on our Transit all summer. Let's hope that BC doesn't shut its borders on us  Wink
Take care, stay healthy.

Pretty good man.

Colleen works in healthcare, but her location has had ZERO cases,  they're very strict on protocol there, and have been in lockdown mode for months.   If it gets in,  it'll be like the other long term care places.

My work has enforced a work from home thing till the 19th,  I'll probably know more on the 18th (late in the day typically).  

Haven't even seen a motorcycle out this year,   winter has been SOOOOOOO long.    We're in the coldest April in decades.

So glad to see that there is still life on this forum!  I hope we can get together in person sometime this summer,  if they ever decide to let us leave/enter this island hell!   Razz

My last ride was to Edmonton in Sept., 2018.  Got caught in the early snow and would have frozen to death had not a buddy loaned me an old riding jacket that was more appropriate for the weather.

 I apparently have the same issue distraction excuse as Birdrunner  -  driving a convertible surrogate.  Ain't that a kick in the ...!  Mine is a dark cherry red Inlove Miata NC, the one with the push button power hardtop.  Been using it - (top down) quite a bit here in sunny Victoria.   Bigok  Next step - a vanity plate- HIGRRLS - if that's not already taken  Wink

The bikes are crammed into the tiny garage that I have out back, except for one that is still in the trailer that brought it here in 2017.  The gas in them has probably turned to jello by now.  I need an incentive to get some rolling again, so won't somebody come and see me??

Sounds like you need incentive to go visit someone else! Won't do your bike much good if people come to you  Bigsmile

What I meant was that I need a reason - any reason - to get back on a bike.  I've had some medical issues that have precluded riding for the past couple of years, but that's all behind me now.  (Modern medecine is nothing short of miraculous!)

Bigok I'm definately up for that!  When was the last Banff Run? 2016? 

Who's in?

Sorry. Not for posting, but for not responding.
Weíve just sold our home, which so many have visited and graced with your presence. Over 100 different individuals over the years btw.

Weíve bought a house in Trail BC. Smaller, less grand etc. But we have to be out and moved in ... in 12 days.

Letís all chat then.

Imagine buying and selling a house in Coved days! Stressful I can say.

Soon.

I have a need, no ... a desire ... to resurrect the WCRM. Seem knobnoses post above. Yes!
Some of my favourite riding ever.
