After Nanaimo, I spent a fantastic week of trail riding (AKA bush whacking, getting whipped by trees, crushing my pipe, and dragging my bike up gnarly hills) in the Kamloops area. It was probably the best ride I have had this season thus far. After such a week I had my bike set up great for some offroad racing; then headed to Whispering Pines for some moto! FYI my offroad FMF exhaust passed with a 89 decibel reading. This is where the saying "Silent..but deadly" comes from right?
