Riding Area: SW BC
Date: July 5
Details: Day trip to the 'loops
The new Brittania Composites Lynx fairing is kicking azz! This was a ripper but it was still a 1:30pm departure and a 1:20am arrival back at the homestead.
Did a Coquihalla rip to Kamloops then took 5a back to Merritt and then Coldwater road all the way to Brookmere. Then the FSR's to Tulameen and then the pavement to Princeton and then Hwy3 back to Hope and the freeway back to Coquitlam. Too bad the bugs are sooo bad around dusk as I could hardly see for the Brookmere to Tulameen section. I was wiping my faceshield every 10-20 minutes there for a while!
I didn't test my headlight before the trip and it was pointed a bit too low on low beam. I changed it to cut off about 100' out now. It looks like it was about 25' here. Also changed the lens on my Squadron XL Pro to all spotlight from the driving lens that it came with. It's set to light up from 100' out now too.
That last pic is Tulameen gas after closing time!
