Rippin' Up the Rockies - June 2003

Wednesday evening after the opening ceremonies in Whistler, Deeley's House of Buell hosted dinner at the Crab Shack.

Joined by Erik Buell, everyone mingled and got to know each other while enjoying a buffet of fajitas and other great food and drink.

Some stayed late while others turned in early, anticipating the next day's ride.

Some riders headed out after the 9:00 am rider's meeting while others left before or after. It was nice to not rush through the experience. Everyone rode at their own pace.

Those not able to ride the entire trip mingle with BRAG riders Scott, Dave, Roger and Charlie.

A great day of riding consists of fantastic roads, good weather and lots of places to pass the caged traffic.

 George and Mary rode the demo XB9S Buells for the day.

Rider's meeting - Kamloops BRAG Rippin Up the Rockies participants and organizers

Friday morning we left Kamloops for Banff, Alberta.
Some took the planned route along Hwy 1, while others went southeast.

BRAG event ready to ride - destination Banff Alberta.

Both routes had their own set of adventures.

Hwy 1 had sporatic road construction but the breathtaking Rocky Mountains more than compensated.

A group that rode via Hwy 97 encountered a snag in the schedule.

But from what I hear, missing the ferry granted the riders a spectacular photo opportunity involving extreme twisties.
I look forward to seeing those! - Canadian motorcycle riding in southern British Columbia.

Enjoy my collection of photos.
