    Moving to Vancouver Island

    Moving to Vancouver Island in April. Initially will be in Ladysmith. Anyone in the area? I'm retired so my schedule is wide open. I have a 2013 RT and a 1999 R1100GS, good to go anywhere the Government will let me. Drop me a line.

    I know one or two KTM guys on the island. The weather is nice and Philips makes good beer.

    There is lots of good beer on the island why don't you leave the rock and ride out to the island? I know you can make it to Lebanon TN!

    You're going to be one happy guy living there. I know a guy who rides a GS and also happens to live in Ladysmith. Rides 12 months a year, is an excellent rider and is also a bit of a mileage hound. I'll ask him if I can supply his email address to you.

    Ha Leon! I did work a film shoot there many many moons agony nd other good friend lives in Victoria but she doesn't ride. It could be a consideration but my guess is I won't like the real estate pricing. How is it up island?

    Real Estate is ridiculous on the Island yet people keep buying. It is truly a suckers market right now. We will be living on our boat for the summer and watching the market closely. I hope to meet some riders. There is a club in Victoria I will likely join. Was hoping to flush out a few contacts with this post. I would like to go to Great Falls rally if the borders open but I'm not to optimistic they will. You never know, riding across Canada is on my Bucket List, I might end up on your doorstep one day.

    Come on over, it will be a fun ride. I have a friend who splits time between NL and Kelowna who might try to ride over to meet us to ride the Trans Taiga in September. You could tag along with him.

    Like I said the only guys Know over there are KTM guys. Gunnerbuck has a 640 with over 220K on it!

    You really don't want to know what I paid for my house, it would make you cry.
