Thanks JT, just to be clear the $700 a day was based on a fully catered trip providing gear, accomodation, fuel, support etc etc.

I have seen some bike hire companies which charge around $250 - $300 a day for new KTM's, but for the price I've found some others (see above), I'd be happy with the cheaper options available.

When I lived in LA, I did a day tour out of Wrightwood from a mob called AdMo Tours. It was a fun day that covered a bit of everything (single track, fire roads, sand dunes, and started to head into the desert). They had Husky's at the time but I think they now have KTM's.

I also did a day tour in Spain from a mob called Dust Devils. That was also good fun as it was rocky, hot, and had more technical trails. I had a KTM on that trip.

Plenty of options out there but I had a couple of good experiences with these guys.

their public health system will cover you up to 250cc, after that you need travel insurance to be covered.

most of the footage in this vid was 40 to 90 mins away from vancouver.

FWIW just got back from Canada and the States (non bike related)

Vancouver through t to Banff has fantastic dirt riding options. A few clubs around but not sure of organised tours etc.

Also spent some time in and around Vegas. On a few drives into the country (read Mojave desert) we come across a groups of dirt bikes and Adv bikes a number of time s who raved about the quality and quantity of riding available.

Going back to Vancouver and Banff one day just to go riding!!

Cheers
