Looking for Riders...In my Area!

I live in the sticks in Northern Alberta....Near Opal.
I am looking for ( Retired or not ) Dual Sport or Motorcycle Riders who live in the Edmonton / Ft Sask / Westlock / Gibbons / Redwater / Thorhild area.

I am a retired Millwright ( 40 years ) and during the winter I rebuild and repair older bikes.
Over the years I have owned and rode all types of bikes and like them all.
To date I have 2008 KLR 685 / 2011 Triumph Tiger 800 and "Old Blu " a 1979 Ironhead

I have people that I ride with but they all have to work and that working stuff just gets in the way of riding.
I like to just hit the road if and whenever I please ( As long as the weather is fair....Ha ha ).

For the past 15 years I have been doing summer trips all over Western / South USA and Canada.... went to Alaska in 2016.
Some winters I trailer my bikes down to Arizona for 2-3 weeks ) Mojave Desert/ Death Valley area ( Camp and Ride )

I do pavement and gravel no matter.
Trips range from 3-5 days to 2 months.
I camp ( weather permitting ) or cheap motel it.

Hi
I just got back from a spring ride. We trailered our bikes to Creston then took Highway 101 from Washington to California. We visited all 3 Redwood Parks and cut back to Reno. Then we headed North across the Black Rock Desert to come back to Creston. Total 4700 kms.

I'm not sure if you are heading to Vegas or to Vega Alberta just North of Westlock. Maybe we could meet up?

At the end of May I'm doing a solo camping trip and heading to Salt Spring Island in BC for 2-3 weeks.

We did that a few years back.....try the Mojave Desert ( the Gravel Route straight down the middle ) you won't be disappointed.
Maybe we could set up a time and date to meet up....I'm retired so pretty much any time is good for me. ( Unless my wife has something planned for me that she told me about 2 weeks ago ...and of course I have forgotten now!
