    On behalf of the CMC Board and CMC Apparel I would like to challenge all CMC Members from "Sea to Sea" to enter a challenge/contest. From now until Monday May 1st, 2017 snap a picture of your motorcycle odometer and post it to this forum along with your best estimate of the total number of kilometres that you hope to put on between the date you post and Midnight December 1st, 2017. After December 1st post another picture of the odometer then and we will determine a winner or actually 3 winners to be precise. All entries to be received by December 14th, 2017. The Member who is closest to their guess will be awarded a $100.00 gift certificate for CMC Apparel, 2nd place will receive a $75.00 CMC Apparel Gift Certificate and 3rd place will get a $50.00. So it is that easy, 1) Snap a picture of your current odometer reading before May 1st 2) Include with the 1st photo your guesstimate on how many kilometres you hope to ride between now and December 1, 2017. 3) After December 1st and before December 14th, 2017 post a picture of your odometer . 4) If you change bike mid way thru the challenge, post a additional photo of end of that bike and another photo of odometer of the replacement. Your totals will be tabulated by our accountants and judges. Have some fun with this and hope to get lots of entries, Only entries posted on the CMC forum will be accepted. There is no actual cash value to the certificates and can be used towards purchase of CMC Apparel items of your choice. Any Questions ask away.

    Hi everyone. After reading the above and having used both method #1 and #2. As previously stated Method #3 is simple and safe, The RC puts the group into single formation then when safe to do so signals to put the group back into staggered formation. The Tail Gunner still has a good view of the entire group and control. Likewise so does the RC. In BC and particularly on the coast with narrow winding roads and blind hills this method functions the safest and smoothest for the group and for individual riders regardless of their level of experience. This method works universally on any road configuration. Just my opinion but of all 3 methods #3 functions safer and more effectively for all riders in the group. There's my 2 cents worth. Cheers Great discussion.

    The adopted way in BC is to put the ride into single file then back into staggered. The problem sorts itself out that way.

    A huge thank you and a big congrats to Pookie Partridge and Steve Becker who were the creators and organizers of the CMC booth at the Spring Motorcycle show this past weekend. During the awards ceremonies the CMC Booth won a 6th place booth award, and the 2 bike in the booth were awards winners in the respective divisions. Way to to all involved

    I tow a Leezure Light and have always loaded as a bike. You won't have an issue.

    in the 056, we use method #3... in the event that someone drops out from the middle, the lead RC calls for single file, and then immediately after single file is achieved, calls for double file... this solves the issue without any crossing or question as to where anyone needs to move to. cheers, S.

    Bikes towing a trailer are treated as a motorcycle only. No extra charges and are loaded as a bike. Now this said, I have heard that trikes towing a trailer have been loaded as a car simply because of the width.

    This is also how 008 Nanaimo solves this problem. There are times however, that the remaining riders take it upon themselves to adopt method #1. There are also times when, on our curvy, twisty roads, the problem sorts itself out on a bend in the road before the RC even knows that a rider has tapped out. Just Sayin'

    A bit of information on getting to the Island, If you are planning on riding or driving over for the rally here is a bit of information on taking BCFerries to and from the Island. As us locals know the time of year is a busy time for the ferry system, with Horseshoe Bay being the busiest route to Nanaimo. One exception that most local riders know is that we rarely make reservations for the ferries when we are riding across, reason being that the motorcycles are loaded on First, and off loaded First, they generally always have the room for up to 20+ bikes in that front area on the ferry. The cost is less when on a motorcycle then in a cage as you can see on their site. It runs about $45 for you and your bike one way. http://www.bcferries.com/schedules/mainland/tsdp-current.php http://www.bcferries.com/files/fares/pdf_format/BCF_Fares.pdf There are two major routes to Nanaimo from the mainland, Horseshoe Bay Terminal to Departure Bay and Tsawwassen Terminal to Duke Point Terminal. I have added the links to their website for Schedules and for Fares. There other alternate routes on BCFerries, taking you south to Victoria-Swartz Bay Terminal, or up from Washington, USA on the BlackBall Ferry, those links are below. http://www.bcferries.com/schedules/mainland/tssw-current.php https://www.cohoferry.com/ https://www.cohoferry.com/reservations/ferry The BlackBall Ferry is out of Port Angeles, WA travelling to Victoria, cost for return is about $72 (2nd link provided). Hope this helps you all in your trip planning. See you in July!!

    An option to Draggin Jeans or leather chaps are "Bohn Armour" which is like a legging with armor for the shin & knees, hips and tailbone. You wear them under your jeans and no one knows. I've worn them for 2 years including 6 months in the Phoenix area with temperatures in the 30°C or 90°F range with no problems of over heating. I'll post a link to their website. https://www.bohn-armor-pants.com/catalog/

    If you arrive after the bikes have loaded and there is an overload situation you will be on the next ferry.

    No straps required. They have the wooden car chocks for placing under the side of bike to keep from tipping over. Usually is not too rough of seas to need straps. I have never used straps yet on the ferry or seen on there anyone else use them.

    On some ferries, bikes are required to tied/ratcheted down. Is this the case with these ferries? If so, are we required to supply our own?

    What we have been doing in several BC chapters is this: First, we tell riders to let the road captain know where and when they are leaving so the road captain will be prepared. Then when the person drops out, we put the group in single file, then back to staggered formation and it puts everyone in the correct order. Very simple, safe, legal and quick to do.

    After having the pleasure of starting a Chapter and seeing the differences between the two groups I can only do what I can do. It all comes down to what others want out of the group, what they are willing to give. If people are not willing to step up and be part of the group then the group will fade. One person can not be the group. My philosophy is to plan rides and ride. Whoever shows up shows up. At the end of the day you can really only worry about one person and that is yourself (well I worry about Baby Jack all the time) I enjoy the social aspect of meeting the others and going to new places. So lets concentrate on what we want and the others will follow. If not I will have a great time riding with the love of my life, meeting others and yes being an extrovert!!
