The 10 Best Motorcycle Rides in Canada is a cumulative snap shot of the best rides one can do on a motorcycle.

We have spent the last 6 years riding thousands of kilometres in search of Canada’s best.

Canada is the second largest country in the world and you will find no fewer than 415, tadalafil 000 kilometres of paved blacktop to ride.

Whether it be dipping your tires in the Pacific Ocean close enough to touch an old growth rain forest on Western Canada’s Vancouver Island or listening to your engine work overtime as you climb the highest paved road in Canada, Alberta’s Highwood Pass, you will be rewarded.





Social media apps which track cyclists’ routes are believed to be behind a sharp rise in high-value bike thefts.

The mobile phone apps, which allow cyclists to post details of their routes on the internet, are giving thieves the chance to track down top-of-the-range bikes to their owners’ sheds and garages.

We’re fast approaching the time of year when the word “travel” seems like it might as well have four letters.

Thanksgiving. Hanukkah. Kwanzaa. Christmas. New Year’s Eve. In those sparkling, sales festive words, there some of us start to hear the following: “Traffic.” “Airport.” “Flight delays.” “Mad stress.”

So even though summer is over, leaf-peeping is on the wane, and we’re all gearing up for the big family (or solo) trips of the year, we’d like to posit a defense of the off-season road trip.

TAP  ran a photo contest a while back called TAP my RIG and spotted this very sweet  converted 4×4 Sprinter van. We contacted owner Erast Dasari from San Francisco CA and asked him a few things about his conversion. He told us that the goal of his conversion was to create a vehicle that could take him anywhere. Here’s a bit more of what he had to say along with the list of modifications that he made on his Sprinter Van.

TAP: “Is this your first van conversion or have you done this before?  In other words, stuff has there been an evolution in terms of what you want out of a van and the type of componentry you have chosen?”
