I've been to Kelowna..
Talk about BFE nowhere up in BC..
Cool place tho..
I do know a couple of riders that are in that area on another message board.
Maybe have to invite them over.
I posted a pointer to the new forum on the Canada regional forum on advriders.
Fixed it for ya.. :mrgreen:
Its just up hwy 97. For us E. WA folks
i hear 97...lake osoyooss (spelling) is a great place...gonna ride there in a week to check it out
:banghead:We were coming back to the US at Peace Arch crossing aka. I-5 in a pickup, 4 cars in front of us were some sport riders with Oregon plates. They got waved over to the inspection area and were emptying out there gear and the guard looked pissed. I have no idea what was said or what tripped the sudden inspection. It was clear they were giving all 3 bikes the hard look. The time to have problems with authority is not at the border. Or maybe they were in to hassles and inconvience.
the weather is great today.
I was just in Kelowna a couple weeks ago for an arborist convention. Nice area. :mrgreen:
I must be dyslectic
the wife and I were up there the 3rd week of August (during the smoke!) everybody told us to head over to Lumby and Nakusp, great riding.
There is a little deli/bakery in Lumby named "Ida's" that sells a disgusting-lookin' black sausage that is worth the stop. And a little shop in Big Valley that sells great cinnanon rolls, Borsht at a coffee shop in Lillooet.
We went east to Calgary & Drumheller, up to Edmonton and Jasper, to Kamloops, Lillooet, Whistler, Nanaimo and crossed back from Victoria to Port Angeles.
Pity to see the single lane wood bridges disappearing west of Lilloet, though.
I go to Kelowna now and then for work... very cool place! One of these days I am going to take a motorcycle trip through the Canadian Rockies and Banff!
And...What is it about the customer service in that town? Wow the establishments in the US (especially restaurants) need to come up for a lesson or two. People are always so nice....
