Backroads Adventures "Riding and Fishing" Tour

Mr. Asao Kumaoka booked a custom five day personalized dualsport motorcycle and fishing tour. We had a great time together riding many hard miles discovering new trails and routes. Asao enjoyed my GPS mystery rides. It was a great opportunity for me to refine some new routes that I had been working on. Asao enjoyed Canada and riding our Suzuki DRZ400.

Backroads Adventures "Riding and Golf" Tour

We always strive to personalize our motorcycle adventures; I believe this is what makes our tours unique. First we start by finding out exactly what our client’s personal preferences are then design a tour that suites their needs; taking pride in exceeding their expectations. Our good friend, Mr. Ikeda Osamu, from Japan joined several of his business associates on a dualsport tour two years ago. We were excited about meeting our retired friend returning from the "Sanzu no kawa group" (I'm told this means "one foot in the grave"). Mr. Ikeda got the idea from his last vacation with us to return to Canada with another of his friends for a “Personalized Golf and Motorcycle Tour”.

We made the arrangements for Tee times and organized motorcycle day tours to visit scenic vistas in the mountains. They enjoyed their tour so much they have already began talking to their friends about another golf and motorcycle vacation.


“Dear Brenda & Dave.
How are you? I am very busy every day. But very fine.

Thank you for mail. I enjoyed this summer in KANADA off-road bike and golf play every day. My friend HIDEKI. He said very happy and he said ” I would like to go to Cranbrook every year for play golf and ride off-road bike.” Next year we hope go to Cranbrook with more many people.

I hope see you again.””

Backroads Adventures Rider Training Tour

Our tour begins with a rider training course. We practiced many off road riding techniques including basic riding skills, hills, logs, mud and even snow. Our clients had a blast testing and improving their riding skills during the morning course followed by a scenic ride in the mountains. It was very interesting to instruct our Japanese friends being unable to speak their language but we were able to overcome the language barriers with demonstrations and a great sense of humor.

There were many laughs during our course and everyone was keen to learn making this a very successful and fun training session. It was rewarding to see their skills improve dramatically after being taught some of the techniques and tricks of riding off road in the mountains.


Each day after the training sessions tour progressed to a scenic ride into the mountains. We made more great new friends from Japan and look forward to their return next spring.



Backroads Adventures Father and Son motorcycle vacation

We prepared for a personalized vacation package for a father and his son. Brenda and Tom spend a lot of time working abroad and their eighteen year old son remained in Canada for school and college training. The ever thoughtful mother decided it was time for some father/son bonding.

A motorcycle tour was the answer. We personalized a three day dualsport adventure they will never forget. I think Tom was a bit surprised at how quickly his son’s riding skills and ability had improved. Suddenly, Kyle had become the better rider.
