MOACharter CLUB #186
The Valley BMW Riders annual Hedley Breakfast Ride. This will be our last visit to The Hitching Post Restaurant before the new owners take over. Brenda and Wilson have been our hosts for over 12 years. Hopefully we can retain the great relationship with the new owners.
Gary in the process of trying to run me over. Karma will come back to haunt him.
The usual pre-breakfast gathering around the bikes. Lots of tire kicking and tale swapping.
With everyone inside lining up for the great buffet breakfast, I was able to get a panorama of the bikes in front. There is almost as many more across the street.
Bob broke out the old \2 for the trip down. The old girl sounded pretty good. Rumour has it she took quite a coaxing to get out of the garage.
More schmoozing and tire kicking after breakfast.
Derrick from Kelowna came by to check us out and ended up riding back through Princeton Summerland Rd with me. A rest stop at the Rec Site at Osprey Lake.
Here is where Karma bites back. Terry waiting with Gary for a tow truck on Hwy 97 south of Summerland. It turns out the problem was not serious and the old RT is back up an running already. (Thanks for the photo Estelle.)
Mid - week breakies in Kamloops and Kelowna. Held on Wednesday throughout the year. Open to spouses, significant others and possible members also. Kamloops: at 8 am Mt. Paul Golf Course
Greetings Folks, Yesterdays winter breakout was well attended, 38 hungry souls arrived with enough food for twice that many. Kevin and Aliske were wonderful hosts and the club thanks them very much for opening their house to us.
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.
As one might expect by the name of this rally it would be a cool one. The weather forecast was not very encouraging. I debated whether to take the route straight north and go over Kootenay pass and risk ice and snow or take a longer route around those mountains.
