10 000 km of awesome

awesome

I bought my DRZ in March 2014. Throughout the summer riding across the Island, to Whistler and to Summerland I stacked a somewhat respectable 10 000 km on it, which is a bit sad considering that the bike had 20 000 since 2008, before I bought it. Oh well, I like to think it’s having  [ Read More ]

What lurks behind Bear Mountain

puddles

It was a nice day out and I decided to go check out the back of Bear Mountain. I heard about it, but never took the bike out that way before. Wow that was a blast! It’s definitively a very finite area, with some trails seemingly ending directly on the golf course, and residences can  [ Read More ]

Victoria – Summerland full ride

victoria to summerland

Here’s the complete video of my ride from Victoria to Summerland at the end of June 2014. It rained 4 times on my way there, I saw 3 speed traps, 1 brown bear, almost got taken out by a fish and got pulled over for riding standing up (and given the breathalyzer for smelling like  [ Read More ]

On any Sunday

We’ve been riding quite a bit this summer (8k km on the DRZ!) Here’s a bit of footage of our usual summery Sundays. First bits are from Shawnigan Lake to Bright Angel Park in Ducan, hitting the Cobble hill Quarry on the way back. When going around obstacles and gates, that’s mostly from the shortcuts  [ Read More ]

Illegal fun overdose

oops cop

Here I was in the Interior BC having one of those psychotically hilarious days where far too much fun was to be had. The nice officer stopped me to make sure I didn’t need anything, then we parted ways vowing to bring our families together next Christmas. Can you have too much fun on a  [ Read More ]

Fish slap in Summerland

I almost got hit by a fish while riding in Summerland BC last week. That’s something you don’t see every day.  

Ride to the Interior

Survivor Man Style DRZ Sumo Adventure in Interior BC A couple of friends are getting married in Summerland and I figured, about a year ago, that it would be a great motorcycle ride getting there and back; 500km each way.  Friday June 27th it’ll be time to put the DRZ to the test. Since nobody is keen  [ Read More ]

Riding to Whistler and golfing like a tool

WP_20140601_11_15_15_Pro

I went to Whistler for a Stag a few weeks back. The Sea to Sky was fantastic to ride, but I’m absolutely terrible at golf. Here’s how it went down. Pathetic golfing skills starts at 6:22.

The Renfrew-Cowichan Loop

WP_20140511_13_23_59_Pro

A few weeks ago Ry and I decided to do the Cowichan-Renfrew loop with our sumos. We didn’t plan it much as usual, and I headed to the Quarry in Cobble Hill to meet Ry, where we held a safety meeting while drinking a coffee. Here’s a few pics we took on the way. As  [ Read More ]
