We couldn't ask for anything better than we got from you, even riding
in the rain is okay (we are used to that type of weather).
I did some promoting at our 24 hour enduro race this weekend so there
might be some more Swedish riders coming your way. I could see a few riders
writing down your homepage address.
Give my best regards to all the other guys/girls from me and I really
hope that we meet again sometime, in Sweden or Canada.
Can you pass on this information to Dana and Jordan? I want them to know
that we really appreciated what you all did for us.
Save my phone number so you can get hold of me if you ever come to Sweden.
Maybe Jordan wants to spend some time over here with Nicklas, but remember
that he will never be the same again after that (that's a risk Dana have

like to start by thanking Dave Martindale, for a 9 day spectacular, life
altering tour. Along with his nephews Mike and Travis, the incredible
organization, the awesome lodging and tasty food Puinsai_5, Duane and
I had the time of our lives. We asked for the A tour treatment and were
given 9 days in Heaven. Again, thanks for the awesome knowledge and commitment
of Dave Martindale and crew. The bikes were DRZ400S models
in great shape. After 9 days in the forest riding them like a rental,
I am convinced there is no better bike to have for what we did... .
Thanks to Dave and the crew for the memories to last a lifetime!!! Also
thanks to Brenda and Dana for making us feel at home and also to Jack
and Morris for the smiles and beers at the cabin..

I wanted to say thanks for the "VIP" treatment during our ride.
We had a great time with you, again !! As it turns out, the highlight
was the snow and most of our stories related to that. Jon and Doug also
enjoyed the week, it was all good."
I am much obliged to you,
during my trip I remember the kindness of your friends. As for me. It
was pleasant that I ran by motorcycle in nature of Canada. I will send
the photographs of my motorcycles and my car, please present them to Doug

August trip. - "Just
wanted to say hey and thanks to everyone for a great trip. Whew..we sure
did burn the candle at both ends, but what a blast! I sure do appreciate
all the efforts. Just too damn short. Now I think I need a vacation from
my vacation! I love it too much out there to have to wait another whole
year to come back. We will have to see. Definitely reality check, back
on the home front. We'll keep you posted. Sure would be good to see a
few of the good pics you took of Crow's Nest, etc..Talk to you soon, Don.
was back again in October. - "Hey Dave, Sure did enjoy the recent
trip "in your neck of the woods". I have a new appreciation
for cold weather riding. Awesome ride" Don Thurber - Silverspring,
Here are a few
quotes from some of the magazine articles featuring our Backroads Adventures
tours. These quotes inspire us as we prepare your ride:
motorcycle adventure is different from an ordinary vacation because it
is a true adventure..... "Adventures, like vacations, aren't
every-weekend activities. You plan for them, save for them, then live
them - and remember them for the rest of your life." - Dirt Bike
Magazine "10 Wild Rides", December 1995. (Backroads Adventures
was selected one of the top 10 motorcycle adventures as reported in a
special feature article by the Adventure Bike staff
on the best motorcycle adventures in the world).
term 'big country' takes on a whole new meaning in the Canadian Rockies...If
you've ever thought about exploring the majestic mountains of the Canadian
Rockies, there is no better way of doing it on a dualsport bike, especially
with the help of Backroads Adventures." - Kit
Palmer, Associate Editor, Cycle News Magazine
"Forget saving for retirement - these rides are never to be forgotten
adventures. Do them before it's too late!! -Kiwi
Motorcycle Rider "Adventure Riding in British Columbia", April
1999 article by John Dalgliesh.
Life is too short
and unpredictable to work only for retirement. Take the advice from John
Dalgliesh and "do it before it's too late!!".
Thanks again to all of my clients, friends and relatives who took part
in our tours. Also to my many good friends at Suzuki Canada, without their
support this would not be possible.
