BORDER RAID 2002
Labour Day Weekend
Finally able to participate in this annual motorcycle ride up the Sea to Sky highway and beyond, we enjoyed riding with our American friends through the mountains of Duffey Lake.
The weather was cool but sunny and the ride from Vancouver to Whistler was interesting to say the least. Running with the traffic proved once again that a motorcycle can easily outwit a cage.
There were a few mishaps on Sunday's Duffey Lake Road journey. A couple of riders went down. But, thankfully no life-threatening injuries.
The first incidence involved what seemed to be a novice, apprehensive motorhome driver. She put on her right signal then decided to swerve left as a rider attempted to pass. Unfortunately there wasn't room for error and the bike went down. The rider was okay but sustained some damage to the left side of his Buell.
The other incident happened further along. From what other riders say, the other mishap looked serious as they rounded the corner to see a downed bike dangerously close to the edge of a steep cliff, with bystanders peering down the precipice. Thankfully they were just looking at what could have happened. Apparently the rider and his motorcycle slid precariously close to the edge of the road. Thank goodness the Rider Spirits are with us!
Once we got to Lytton, replenished fluids and had lunch, it was time to split up the group. Some went to Merritt and headed toward Kamloops and Osoyoos while a group of us headed south toward Vancouver.
Enjoy the photos and read more about our motorcycling adventures.
