Over 500 bikers spent a weekend or riding, drinking and dining in the small desert town of Oliver, British Columbia, Canada. The extremely successful event, now in its tenth year, drew riders from across the Pacific Northwest of the United States and Canada. Attendance was up from last year, if only slightly. Some attributed this to the scheduling of a new competing rally, "Sportbike Northwest", which took place in Washington state on the same weekend.
SportBike West attendees enjoyed excellent riding conditions on the Okanagan Valley's twisty roads. Only a few minor mishaps occurred, leaving most, if not all satisfied, safe and sound.
Stunt shows, Freestyle MX jumping and an Observed Trials demonstration were only a few of the highlights of the Kawasaki sponsored event. Over half the rooms for next year's 2006 rally are already sold out.
