Yes S.O. There is absolutely nothing in Edmonton that is better than here.

rickard919 Hwy 6 is a must ride again road. The dry gas tanks sucked. Literally. Good thing I had that syphon hose in my bag of tricks.

I didn't get too many pictures this trip, but here they are:

Figured I may as well take a picture while I wait for gas.

Mr.T81 hangin' out.

This is a shot of molesteR1, in the background you can see Z1-Jockey coming.

Z1-Jockey up close.

These next two are of Mr.T81 on the same strech of road. Directly behind where I am standing is a 20 deep ravine with a few trees, lots of rocks and a river. No guard rails here folks. some places on this road there is no shoulder, 12" of gravel, then ravine or trees. Amazing. If you ride this road and don't scare yourself at least once, you aren't riding hard enough.

Gotta laugh at the dry gas tanks.
T81 gets the prize for stalling dry at the gas station driveway. I had that happen once before, on my Norton - wow, that was a long time ago, 1973 to be exact.

Z1-Jockey I think this is an accurate map of the trip ...



LINK-> To Larger Map

You guys left Calgary @ 8am Saturday. I got back 10pm Sunday. About 38 hrs Calgary to Calgary?

Excellent trip! Highway 6 should definitely be part of next years trip again.
08-15-2011 08:03 PM
Mr T81 Here's a couple pics, videos to come later...
08-15-2011 07:27 PM
rickard919 LOL, R1 molester. He wants to go by molestR1. It was a great trip. I'll have to upload some pictures.

Mr T81 We had a beautiful week-end, sunshine, 30-35C, awesome
roads. Our trip started out in Calgary saturday morning, Rickard,
R1 molestor and me left around 8 and headed west. We got
stuck in a construction zone, 45 mins at 10 km/h. Then Rickard
ran out of gas, 4 km's later R1 ran out of gas and then I ran out
of gas in the gas-station's driveway.

Later we met with Z1-Jockey, had supper and went a little bit further
before stopping for the night.

Sunday morning was the best part of the trip, hwy 6 is one of the
best road I've ever been on with the bike. Twisties, very little traffic,
ferries, forest and nice pavement. I recommend Hwy 6 to everybody.

foggy Be sure to post up pics guys, wish I could have made this ride.
08-13-2011 10:46 AM

Have fun.
Enjoyed meeting up with the three of you last night.

We haven't talked routes yet. You want to meet us part way out. I was thinking the way we went last year on the ferries. Just let us know where you want to meet and we can plan from there.

08-09-2011 06:12 AM
rickard919 Ya I see no problem with you crashing at my place. Come with us Mcromo. You going to be around on the week-end Wallybanger?

I just heard from Z1. Sounds like he's in if we are back for Monday.
08-08-2011 10:43 PM
Mr T81 Rickard: If you dont mind I can ride down to Calgary
on friday after work, sleep in my tent in your backyard
friday night and leave early saturday morning.
Try sending a text to Z1 tomorrow, it takes 14 hrs. for
his phone to receive it.

McRomo, if you dont come with us maybe we
could meet friday evening...
08-08-2011 10:34 PM
rickard919 I am in. That timing is perfect for me.
