Vancouver Island Gold River Aug 9-12th

Hi guys,

This is my 5th annual Gold River/Port Hardy Vancouver Island ride.
I have yet to have a member from here join us...last year we had 19 riders and the year before 36...riders from all over BC and even from Oregon and Washington.
All bikes welcome....

Thursday Aug 9th I hold a good old garage party at my place

Friday we head to Gold River...the number 3 rated motorcycle road in BC!
https://www.goldriver.ca/

Saturday we head to Port Hardy...

Sunday Home

This is a bunch of very laid back men only ride....it is a throw back to our youth...no drama.

I book all the rooms...plan on $50 a night shared
If you want to know more...just ask.

Cheers

80-85 degrees and no humidity is the normal.....from July to Sept we typically only get a few days of rain.
It's ok if you like your riding weather perfect.

Re: Vancouver Island Gold River Aug 9-12th

Well my 5th annual Gold River/Port Hardy trip was a fun success!
Total of 29 bikes. Everything represented....old, new, all genres and lots of brands. It truly is a melting pot.

It's tradition to start off Thursday with a garage party at my house.



















Even a Harley...

Those crazy Harley riders....



Port Hardy....very fancy...lol





Highlight was watching these guys clean the fish then feed the heads to Bald Eagle that would swoop in to pick up the head.



Very mature friends I have...you can see the smoke from the fires in the mainland...



And some fun on the bridge....lol

Trevor:

Nice report and pics. Your neighbors must be pretty cool - some may not like all you motorcycle types converging on their street?

My neighbours are awesome. Two of them are police officers...We all know each other and my garage has become a gathering place in the hood. I also have a "Safety meeting" every Friday afternoon in my garage....so the neighbours are use to me and my biker buddies. I'm lucky.
