Harley Davidson Livewire test ride

by Editor on 05/05/15

When I first saw the Harley Davidson Livewire several months ago during the official press release I was blown away!

Last week I found out that I've been chosen to ride one....


"Trev Deeley Motorcycles is proud to have Jeff from Vridetv along with us for the Project Livewire experience. Jeff is a true rider through and through like ourselves and captures the essence of riding like no other.  Jeff's talent and experience coupled with our 98 years of motorcycle business should provide with some great shots."

Vridetv Super Stash for Motorcycle Awareness Month

by Editor on 05/03/15

To celebrate Motorcycle Awareness Month we thought a #SuperStash was in order. We grabbed one of everything put it in a ziplock bag, jumped on the bike and went looking for a stash spot. It was a great day for a ride on Highway 3 and lunch a Manning Park. The Super Stash is taped under the picnic table.

What's in the Stash?
Trev Deeley Motorcycles: Harley-Davidson Keychain & Sticker
Avon Tyres Sticker
ZootFresh Sticker
Fusion Cine Sticker
Igor Pug Dog Sticker

"May all your rides be safe & scenic, Filled with blue skies & winding roads."


So if you're out for a ride stop by and see if it's still there,
if it is..... it's yours : )

Vridetv sticker stashes will be taken place on some of our rides, you can track where we're riding here http://www.vridetv.com/tracker.html

May is Motorcycle Awareness Month

by Editor on 05/01/15

May is Motorcycle Awareness month.....

This campaign really hits home with me,
On May 21 st, 1998. I was riding to work on my 1995 Harley Davidson ultra-glide classic. I was heading down 176th street when a tow-truck turned left in front of me with-out looking. I collided with the tow truck hitting the passenger side of it. All I remember are a few seconds... read more

Harley Davidson Vrod 150,000 kms and Sticker Stash mania

by Editor on 04/21/15

Our Harley Davidson Vrod camera bike's odometer hit 150,000 kms yesterday!
This is hands down the best motorcycle I've owned in over 40 years of riding, it looks and rides like it has only 15,000kms. The paint and chrome process that Harley Davidson has definitely stands the test of time, and the Revolution motor is both a powerhouse and incredibly reliable.

Here's where it happened, on Yale road just before Evans road in Chilliwack. To mark this occasion I stashed one of our 

"May all your rides be safe & scenic, Filled with blue skies & winding roads" Patches and stickers on the telephone pole

So if you're out for a ride stop by and see if it's still there,
if it is..... it's yours : )

Motorcycle Rides in the Kamloops area

by Editor on 04/17/15

Make Kamloops your home-base while exploring all that the area has to offer. Take in the incredible wilderness of Wells Gray Provincial Park, immerse yourself in the Gold Rush history of the area, and view the wide-open vistas of ranch country. Whatever the route, visitors will return to Kamloops with memories of the day's driving tour.

I've spent a lot of time in the Kamloops area and know these routes well, I highly recommend planning your next ride there.
