    2021 Summer Trip Photos and Videos

    I thought I would share some photos, videos and GoPro highlights from my summer 2021 trip.  It was 6 days, 2,700 km around the backroads of wildfire ravaged British Columbia at the beginning of July.  The wildfires did not impact us too much, but a large number of the small towns we visited where evacuated in the weeks following the trip.  I know some of you will think I am crazy for taking the XR off the pavement, but I can only afford one scoot and I do not want to compromise on the street/track performance.  The XR does quite well with 80/20 tires on packed gravel.

    Here is a link to the route map:

    Here is a link to the wildfire map for British Columbia:  If you turn on the "Declared Out" layer you can see how it was hard to avoid them on the trip.

    Here is link to some photos and videos:

    Thanks for the terrific Trip Report Ken - well done.

    That area in BC is one of our favorite areas to ride… I think my wife likes riding her bike out there so much because of the free Ferry rides across all of the bodies of water.
