We're planning our yearly bike trip, seeing if anyone wants to go along.
Probably not much for any dirt stuff this year, but exploring a road somewhere always happens, especially if looking for a camp spot.
Planning on a 5 day round trip up to Calgary for the Stampede all day Saturday. The town is a full blown party the entire week.
Leave 0600 on 12 July and back on the 16th.
We'll be tent camping mostly, maybe a hotel for a hot shower one or two nights.
Looking to be over 1500 miles round-trip and debating coming back thru Glacier National Park. Have to do more research on that as it could put a crunch on time, and pushing miles on a bike wears you out fast which ends the fun factor.
Heading there over Cascade highway and up to Osoyos border crossing and probably camping south of Revelstoke.
Gotta have a bike capable of putting on miles at speed, and conditioned ass to sit in the saddle for a few hours. And of course no weapons.
Let me know.

Sounds like an awesome plan! Enjoy!

We're going to try to make the Stampede next July in 2019 with our RV.

Next year, it's pertnear a straight shot north for you!
If only you had your place already built......I'd have a spot to set up camp!

Have heard about how fun it is during the Stampede, just never went and now is the time to do it.

Near our Ennis, MT ranch we sold 10 years ago, they had 4th July rodeo that was fun. It drew riders from all over the state. Calgary is supposed to be the world's largest rodeo apparently.

Sounds good.
Right now there are 5 of us going, 3 BMW's, a Verses and a KLR650.
Due the the KLR, won't be a super fast blowing the speed limit trip, but he pulls pretty good with the BMWs

I have an R1, so I think I can keep up.

It's not the most comfortable on long rides but I've done a few on it. Been up to the interior of BC to see family with it.

There's a good chance I won't be back from Hawaii by July 12. I'm sailing a boat back so it all depends on the wind.

This sounds like an awesome trip. Wish that I could join. :wagwoot:
I'll still be fighting through this house build or else institutionalized by then.

I'm a definite maybe, have to see if I'm riding to SC to see family around then.
