This is the weekend of the Valley BMW Riders campout in Kaslo, in the heart of the great West Kootenays riding country. Some of the finest riding roads in the province are located in these scenic valleys.
However, in spite of the great roads and the good company, this weekend will be remembered for its weather! The forecast was for showers, rain, and wet, and then more rain! We went anyway.
Left Salmon Arm Saturday morning, before 10am, dry and sunny and looking good! Out Enderby way, headed for Mara Lake and slipped into Trinity Valley, great road, with about 25 miles of good gravel, hardly a car on the road. Saw a couple of deer, and a cinnamon bear. Rejoined the highway at Lumby, and headed over the famous Highway 6 and the Monashee Pass.
We were a few miles past Cherryville and climbing up to the pass when 2 sport-bikes came out of nowhere, and flew past us. I turned up the wick and hung onto their ass for the next 40 miles 'til we came to the Needles ferry. This was great fun, and we had dry roads, and long sweeping corners, saw a couple more deer too. They soon had to stop for gas, and we continued to Nakusp.
Nakusp has some very nice parks and flower gardens, so we did a walking tour, and stopped for lunch at a sidewalk cafe. I had a great burrito and coffee. While we were eating, a 1952 Vincent Rapid, with a "dust-bin " fairing, parked at the curb. Turns out there is a Vincent get-together at the nearby hot-springs. They haven't made these wonderful British bikes since about 1956.
We continued down the Highway to New Denver, had a look around and started up Highway 31A, one of the twistiest roads in the area. Nice new asphalt, and smooth corners, some slow to 15! It started to rain, and we saw 4 Vincents going the other way, what a wonderful sound!
It rained into Kalso, and we found the city park with about 10 bikes and tents awaiting for us.
