Default British Columbia riders!

I think all the BC riders should get together and go for a gasgas ride. So lets hear some ideas.

I think a Pacific Northwest ride would be even better. BC, Alberta, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, etc. Picking time/location might be difficult.

Works for me, but I was thinking Washington might the logical (ie. central) choice for a ride. Though up here in BC we do have some epic singletrack that would for an unbelievable ride.

Would people be willing to travel to the Okanagan (say, Kelowna) for a GasGas ride? If we had enough people interested we could make this a pretty cool event. If there's interest I could talk to GasGas Pacific/Okanagan Motorsports about a demo ride. What's everyone think?

Kelowna's only a 45 minute drive from my house in Summerland , so count me in. I probably can even offer garage space, bed-roll space, and trails right from the house. Did I mention the hot tub and beer fridge?

There are at least two more (very good) GG riders here in the Summerland/Penticton area.

Cool guys. What dates work for you guys? I'm thinking we should do this ride in May/June or late September/October to avoid the hot weather and dust. I'm pretty busy with racing but depending on the weekend I may be able to make it.

my son and I would go to the Kelowna area providing you can still get through (back through!!) the border without passports as that wouldn't fit into the budget. He has wrestling and football camps that start the week before and end the week after 4th of July (+/-) plus we do a boat poker run the first weekend of August at Lake Roosevelt and Spokane River area.. anybody have a boat,, come on down!
OK, so you asked what weekends are open, just adding my 2 cents.
