My western Canada & U.S. trip from July 23 to August 16, 2019

I suggested to Tammy a year ago that I'd like to motorcycle to the west coast, and the east coast not all in one trip. I suggested it to a buddy of mine that has family in B.C. and he grabbed the reins and run with it. With much planing (mostly on his part) we hit the road on July 23rd, and came back after an amazing trip on August 16th. There was just no end to the incredible sites, twisty roads and all around amazing riding!

Just over 12,000 kilometers (7,456 miles) and two oil changes it was probably a trip of a lifetime for me. Next year I plan on going to the east coast.

Great pictures, I like the one that says" Please don't hold children over the rails" makes me wonder why they have to post that in the first place, I guess stupid people do stupid things. The other one I like was the restroom sign, "Whatever, just wash your hands" that is funny.
