Ahoy!
Just did a fantastic ride out to Lillooet and made a little reconnaissance of the surrounding region to the North & West....along Bridge River Rd (aka Lillooet Pioneer Road 40). Becomes a hard packed dirt road after a bit...but it's not a forest service road...has proper road signage and several work crews busy keeping the boulders cleared. My bike has Bridgestone TrailWing tires...a 50/50 road/dirt tread...worked very well here....but I did a little of this last year with Avon road rider street tires and it handled OK too.

Need to plan a ride all the way between Pemberton & Liilooet across this remarkable track!

See my post here for some pics:

Looks like a fun road to explore. Definitely want to try it once I swap out my street tires.

New Vancouver (Chinatown) rider checking in with my Scrambler! Wrong time of year, but I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for dry days.

Hey Vancouver RATs, adding another number to your ranks. Just purchased my first bike (2017 T100 Black) and getting a few mods done before I pick it up in a couple of weeks.

I've got my protective gear and I'm taking my rider training next week. After that, I'll wait for dry roads and do a number of short neighbourhood rides. Any other advice for a newb on the left coast? Thanks!

Not really a Vancouver guy but I hang out here, in Vancouver, quite a bit. New to this, I just completed my MSA and got a Street Twin.
Funny there isn’t a Vancouver, I’ve seen lots of Triumphs, around before I bought one.
Thought I would bump this one back up, to see if there is any interest out there.
