Super B and Casey and myself went on a mountain tour this past weekend.

Left Marysville saturday morning, was real nice cool morning. Casey has a 79 XL500 that's really sweet, Brian on his DR, me on my Austrian mistress.

Grey Creek Pass. This german fella and his fam shipped their custom Steyr truck to Halifax from Germany, drove it across Canada taking as many backroads as possible

The trusty steeds at the top, now we descend to a place called 'Grey Creek' on the mighty Kootenay Lake

but first...a flat tire on Brian's DR. A naturally fashioned bike lift and remove the front tube for patching. Guy and his young son happened along in Jeep up from Koot lake side to critique us

After patching and airing up, and re-airing up, and again, and again....the patch finally seemed to vulcanize itself and hold. We coasted down to Grey Creek store and got some tube goop, sealed her for real!
