Luke knew of an additive which some of the car racers used to lower the engine temp so he went off to get me more coolant and some additive (with a great discount....thanks Luke)
Drinking and watching Robin play football was the nights entertainment. After a long lie Nigel showed us around Kelowna (really nice town) and after lunch I changed the coolant again!!
More partying and great to see Mark again following the Wyoming Norton meeting, Mark offered to show us the road up to Sorrento the following day (about 110 miles away) so Saturday saw the three of us head after our goodbyes to Nigel and family up some great roads. A stop for coffee and we met up with Eddie, a 76 year old ex pat Lancastrian still riding his Triumph Thruxton to keep him young, these guys are an inspiration! Onto the excellent motorcycle Museum at Sorrento, great to see a good mix of bikes, also another farewell to Mark, last night camping in a very noisy campsite (5 feet from the road!) then today a much cooler ride to Williams Lake (thankfully the bike has behaved till now)
So far really enjoying Canada, great people and great roads but why is our trip being governed by how far our bikes go without issues? Today we had to take a different route just to stay on a busier road in case of issues, adventure biking? .......really?....
