Day 10 - Prince George, BC to Kamloops, BC

Well our luck with good weather has finally run out! We woke up this morning to wet bikes & wet roads. We left our hotel and headed to the Harley dealership to pick up a pair of wet weather gloves for Jeff. Fortunately, they had some that fit his big mitts!! We picked up a couple of t-shirts and got on the road at 10:00 am.
Most of the day we spent chasing the rain that had already come through the towns. The roads were quite wet but not much rain fell from the sky until the early afternoon. We had probably 50 miles of rain and the rest of the 328 miles we rode today were on wet roads, but no rain falling. The bikes are quite filthy but performed great!
In hindsight, I would have skipped the trip to Prince George and spent an extra day in Banff. The ride to Prince George was pretty, but we rode a good portion of it when we went to the glacier. We enjoyed Banff so much we just didn't want to leave!
Kamloops is a nice looking town. We're staying at a nice Best Western and had yummy Chinese food for dinner. This is our last night in Canada -- we cross the border tomorrow on our way to the Seattle area.
