Very cool video Wally! Looked like fun after you ditched those pesky slowpokes.

Tar snakes like mad on that road... would not want to ride it in the heat.

Stock mirrors?!?

Metric shit ton of traffic?

Alice Cooper ?!

Solid no-passing lines 50% of the ride?

Looks like a great high speed road !

Tar snakes can be a bit of a bitch but there are some great clean stretches.

Stock Mirrors came off yesterday and the bike looks SOOO MUCH BETTER!!

Traffic wasn't too bad most of the way and BC roads are windy so you pick up on where you can pass and where you can't pretty quickly

We were taking it pretty easy. Didn't go much over 100MPH, cruising mostly at 80 or 90

The descent into Osoyoos coming from the East on The Crowsnest Highway is a blast on either 2 or 4 wheels when you're storming it. I've logged tens of thousands of kilometres on The Crow, and it's still a joy to drive or ride it.
