My name's Chris and I'm coming back...lol
I'm on the list for a drz-400s as of tomorrow. Had a klr 650 until 2014, tried a Virago but discovered I'm really not a cruiser guy. I really need to salvage my mental health and get back on the trails. Are there any folks that meet up for rides on the weekends around Victoria?
Glad to be back.
Be happy, Chris

Hi Chris,

I am also in Victoria, I don't know any group meet-up rides, but I have a DR650 and try to get out for a dirt ride at the VMC or Shawnigan every couple of weeks at least. Let me know if you are interested.

When do you expect to have the drz?

Hey Danny,

Thursday sounds good!
I could be convinced of a port-renfrew ride, I am not as familiar with trails as I am with Shawnigan area trails. But I have some experience in the Tansky riding area (across hwy from china-beach).

Congrats Chris, that is exciting!
Let's see a picture!​
Any mods planned?​

I shorted a bunch of wires on my bike. Unfortunately I am now waiting on delivery of replacement parts, so my bike is down until July 29 at least. 😞

Hey Chris,

My bike is fixed! I gave it a test ride at the VMC in metchosin, and all is well. I still need to add some extra fuses to the new wiring-harness so that this, picture below, doesn't happen again.
