New Hazelton to Iskut – 458km

Today we travelled the Cassiar Highway, not many people live in this area, its pretty isolated.  Again lots of trees, mountains, and had a bit more rain but thankfully we missed the thunderstorms forecast again today.  Temps getting cooler as we head further north, and in fact up in Prudhoe Bay where we are going […]

Prince George to New Hazelton 449km

On the road by 8:00 and stopped for breakfast with these guys. People live in the middle of nowhere – mailboxes at the end of a country road. There are LOTS of trees in Canada – this is fairly typical of what we have seen today, trees as far as you can see. Charlie got […]

Lillooet to Prince George – 523km

The forecast for our route today was showers followed by thunderstorms starting at 10:00 and lasting for the rest of the day.  We saw the heavy black clouds building on the mountains so decided to get some dry mileage under our belts, and were on the road by 7:30.  We were dodging the rain well […]

Vancouver to Lillooet – 292km

Our journey begins

14 July, our date for leaving Auckland, but before we even left the airport I had a “first” –  I was randomly selected from the crowd to be tested for gunpowder residue on my clothes. The flight from Auckland to San Fransisco took 12 hours, then when booking in for our transfer to Vancouver, we […]

The bikes are off

The date for collecting the bikes was suddenly brought forward from Monday to the previous Friday, so that meant we had to crate them up on Thursday night.   Harley crates suited our bikes well.  Just needed to remove the screen and drop the handlebars.  Plenty of room for the panniers to fit in by […]

Countdown – 9 weeks until we go

Full service on bikes – tick.   Thanks to the team at Yamaha Central on the North Shore for doing a great job. Everything has been checked and changed as needed. The team also gave Charlie some good tips on roadside maintenance – thanks guys.   Insurance – tick.   We have used Motorcycle Express based […]

Test Run

South Island, New Zealand is one of  THE best places to ride a motorbike with great roads and even better scenery so we decided to have a test run with all our gear over the Christmas holidays.  We love riding in the South Island and any excuse is a good one. On the way down […]
