I'll go first - Really enjoy offroad-BMW's

Post by Chris in BC » Sat Aug 07, 2010 9:04 pm

I have always enjoyed riding offroad and camping. The airhead has always worked well at this, being reliable, able to carry all the gear and fun to ride.

They used to be here. Did they get deleted from the forum's database?

There's been some "technical difficulties".

Well the pics are there now. And boy are they working for me. That BC pic of that rocky track. Now thats optomistic. I must say, whatever marque one was riding in those days, make Adventure Riding these days pale in comparison.
I REALLY AM A NICE GUY. JUST ASK ANYONE THAT HASNT MET ME.

Your photos bring back memories of similar exploits.I don't know if you know Phil "Fuzzy" Funnell, but back in the '70's, he used to have rides called Funnell's Follies.This was long before "Adventure Motorcycles". For instance,we would ride off road to east of Vancouver,to the top of Camel Mountain to the CBC (?) repeater tower and camp in the most remote places. On one ride we had to put a rough bridge together using saplings and rope to get across a small river. I was riding my '72 R60/5 with "S" bars and Krauser saddlebags. Needless to say it was an experience not to be forgotten.
