2021 Summer Trip Photos and Videos
on: August 23, 2021, 05:46:58 PM
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: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1LPZ7MmjVGw_jLu1kOBsY7GgveFJEQcZW&usp=sharing
