Couch surfers

doing some maintainance

I’ve had my second couch surfer pass through this week. This one on a motorcycle tour of his own. Heinrich from Germany, stopped in for a quick rip up the sea to sky highway and to hang out in Canada for a couple days. We went for a ride around Stanley park, and replaced his badly worn rear tire. Using the kickstand of my bike to break the bead really helped things along.

Henrich with his luggage. Pelican cases are quite nice.

Heinrich had some pretty nice gear and luggage. Pelican cases with easy-off mounts were nice. His recommendations: GPS is a must, and brings less clothes.      I’ve been enjoying hosting the couch surfers, and traded in the German for two Montrealers who arrived just as Heinrich rode off this morning.
