I had Tracy's voice in my head that I should do more on my travels... so I decided to stop at this River Safari to try to see some black bears from a boat.

When we got going, it started to rain more and more... soon I got all soaking wet and we didn't see any bears. I bet bears that saw us, were making fun of the stupid people soaking wet in the boat :(

DAY 8: Traveled 411km: I'm heading home... the long way round :) I'm riding North East.. First stop Whistler, than Kamloops, than Jasper :) Too bad it looks like it will be raining for the rest of my trip, it would be nice to see all these beautiful places in a nice weather.

Today I had probably one of the best riding days in a long log while, the rad was full of nice turns and the views were spectacular!

DAY 7: Traveled 477km: I woke up early mooring and decided to ride North. I wasn't sure how far North I would go but that was the direction I was going. When I made my first stop I noticed that my bike was leaking oil from an air filter... I guess when it fell upside down a few days ago, the oil got into the air filter box. I cleaned it up a bit from the outside and hopefully it will be ok until I will get home to open it up and clean it all out.

When I stopped for gas, I didn't notice that one of my straps fall onto my hot muffler and it burned off :( Luckily I had a few spare straps. Also you can see that for some reason my rear mud flap burned and melted a bit from all the high speed riding :(

On my way back I took a faster route... it was a lot of nothing at 120 km/h... but I made a pretty good time :) Although because of the hight speed, and my scooter being loaded pretty heavy, and riding agains the wind.. my gas milage really suffered and I almost run out of gas.

2014-08-31 23:00 Sergei Belski: Thank you Darby! :)
2014-08-31 21:46 Darby: I was just in Campbell River for. My honeymoon, but without my Vespa unfortunately. Just found your blog and I always get really excited to see Vespas on Vancouver Island (I've got a GT200). Happy travels!

DAY 6: Traveled 124km: After great breakfast this morning, as promised, I headed to catch a ferry to get to Victoria. It took me less than 5 minutes from the moment I bought the ticket to be already parked on the ferry. With motorbikes you get in front of everyone and I guess my timing was perfect :)

I was trying to get closer to get a photo of my bike with a big ship but I guess I got too close. This woman told me that I wasn't supposed to be there and kicked me out.

DAY 5: Traveled 114km: I made it to Vancouver! :) In the morning I decided to visit Vancouver Aquarium. The traffic in Vancouver was pretty bad but the views are fantastic! I really want to move here... anyone would like to sponsor me?

my vespa adventures photo
CANON 1D X, 70-200 MM, ISO 100, F 2.8, 1/3200

I was trying to get close to one of the trees in the area and my rear tire slipped on some roots... I went down with the bike, luckily there was a men near by who helped me to get my heavy loaded bike back up. I'm all good and the bike has only a small scratch on the top case and a bend in my rear crash bar (I should be able to straighten them when I will get back to Calgary). These crash bars are so great for protecting your bike, really recommend them!

CANON 1D X, 24-70 MM, ISO 400, F 2.8, 1/320

I visited aquarium before but this time I thought it was pretty small, specially for the $34 (I didn't pay for parking)... I still enjoyed it of course!

I made a quick stop at Vespa Vancouver, just to take a look what they had :)

CANON 1D X, 24-70 MM, ISO 100, F 2.8, 1/500

From a recommendation of what to do in Vancouver I was told to visit a "clothes optional" beach.. so I did. Crazy busy, hundreds of people.. I was able to squeeze between cars in a prime parking spot! The beach is located on a bottom of the hill with 478 stairs (yes I counted)... Did I tell you how much I dislike stairs?!

CANON 1D X, 24-70 MM, ISO 200, F 4, 1/320

For the night I'm staying with my college friend, who was very kind to give up his bed for me and provided a great dinner! We had a nice relaxing swim in the pool and I was promised a breakfast tomorrow morning :)

DAY 1: Traveled 604km: What a rainy rainy ride all the way to Lake Louise, I tell you, trying to pass a lorry on a motorway during rain is not as easy as it sounds :) Today was a pretty much "get to the camp site" day.

my vespa adventures photo
CANON 1D X, 24-70 MM, ISO 200, F 2.8, 1/1000

Look at me all happy in the rain :) I had all my Tucano Urbano rain gear on and stayed completely dry. I love Tucano Urbano and I have so much of their stuff for my Vespa.. they should really sponsor me! :)

The sun was shining in Revelstoke when I arrived so I was happy and took all my rain gear off... After I rode for 5 minutes, I totally regretted my decision when it started to pour on me and I had to quickly put all my gear back on. I finally made it to the lake where I'm meeting my family and we are camping for a few days! :)

Tomorrow I'm on my way for a little adventure with my Vespa. I'm heading to Vernon, BC for a wedding and will meet there with my family for a few days of camping. Than I'm off to Vancouver and Victoria and to ride and explore Canadian West :) I dont know if this was the smartest idea that I ever had, but I just did a full service on my Vespa all by myself for the first time. Scooter seems to be working so I hope I will make it :)

my vespa adventures photo
CANON 1D X, 24-70 MM, ISO 400, F 2.8, 1/800

As you can see by the grooves, I only have 2 speeds on my bike... full throttle and idle :) I replaced these at this service.

This was one of the fastest family photo shoots I have done. When I arrived to Cremona, AB for the photo shoot, we could already see the lightning and we knew that the rain was coming. It was just a question of how much time we will have. I worked very fast and I think we still ended up with some nice images :)

2014-08-10 15:08 Cheryl T: what a wonderful time for all those little ones, and I think the parents enjoyed it just as much.
2014-08-10 06:12 Tracy B!: LOVE THEM! Thanks so much! Abby getting eaten ;)

Last night I had a family photo shoot around Cremona, AB so naturally I rode there on my Vespa :) Well on my way back I got in some hail and this is the view right after I got out of it. Still a very nice ride. Can anyone see the latest addition to my Vespa? :)

You may have seen a large group of scooters riding in Calgary and area... Well this was the 9th annual Apocalypse Scooter Club Rally. This is a long post with some of my photographs from all 3 days I spent riding with the club. All together I rode for 442 km and It was great to get my Vespa out to play with other scooters :)

If you like to hang out with scooter minded individuals, this was the place to be this weekend.
