If you're going to ride the Sunshine Coast, the Upper Deck Guesthouse in Sechelt is a nice spot to rest up http://www.secheltaccommodation.com/home.php, was there in June.
Drove from Langdale up to Sechelt, and then up as far as Madeira Park. The road was really, really twisty between Sechelt and Madeira Park.
We're looking forward to your trip report. Have fun.

So, working in a Harley/Honda dealership has its advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side, I get to experience working on different types of bikes and power equipment in a professional environment. On the downside, I'm exposed to all kinds of eye candy and shiny things and it can have a detrimental effect on my bank account.

Last Fall, the radio on my beloved 2007 Road Glide lost its display and I decided to replace it over the winter while the bike was in storage. Well, after doing some research i bought a new face plate for the radio and installed it last week, but the display still did not work which meant the fault was within the radio body itself. So I had two options; spring for a new (or used) factory replacement radio or go for an aftermarket plug n play system. Then a third option presented itself and I decided to take that course of action instead. Today I traded in the mighty 2007 Road Glide, aka "Blackbird" for a new, leftover 2015 Road Glide. As an employee of the dealershp I was given a very good price for the new and a fair trade in value for the old and today all the paperwork was signed.

Neato. I wonder if there is a sidecar in the same colour somewhere waiting for you to discover it....

bmw f650gs.jpg
2002 BMW F650gs (just got it with the Ural yesterday), 2003 Harley Davidson Road King (only 9750 kms - for sale!)

, 1983 KZ750 (loved this bike but sold it last week to help pay for the Ural and BMW)

. And just for fun, my neighbour's meticulously restored 1942 US Army Jeep.

It was put together for the 37 day Peking to Paris classic car rally, but the chinese government wouldn't allow a US Army jeep (even a privately owned one) in the country! He's invited me to be the navigator in the 2019 P2P race in a 1917 Lachance Fire Truck that he's currently rebuilding!

Just realized I never added to this, so here they are.

After doing a few 4000km trips on the Ural, I realized I wanted to get a serious touring bike, so in June 2016 I picked up a 2008 Electra Glide Ultra Classic. Did a fly and ride to Calgary. Later in the year I took it to Northern California and a few weeks ago did a 6600km 12 day trip to Utah, something I could have never done on the Ural.

Last Friday I picked up a 1980 FXS-80 Lowrider. Its a AMF Shovelhead :crazy:

The hazards of working at a dealership. First I upgraded from an 07 to a 15 Road Glide, now this 02 Heritage Softail will be keeping "Redbird" company in the driveway. Gonna strip it down and make it a "F*ck You" bike for the times the mood strikes me...
