Default WeSTOC XVIII in Sooke on Vancouver Island

Announcing WeSTOC XVIII in Sooke, British Columbia, June 25-27, 2013

Join us for the 18th annual western gathering of ST owners. Whether you choose oceanside hotel or riverside camping, you will be surrounded by breathtaking scenery in this natural paradise. Sooke is near the stunning capital city of Victoria, one of the premier travel destinations in the world, so a great day of riding can easily be combined with sightseeing.

Part of the fun of WeSTOC is seeing friends from past events and developing new friendships. WeSTOC gives us the opportunity to gather and share a wealth of information as we admire farkles, discuss our favourite roads and talk about our experiences with those who share our passion. Whether you are a first-timer or have never missed an event, start making your plans now.

We look forward to seeing you in Sooke.

Hi Diana,

Thanks for posting this.

Are you the official "Disorganizer" for WeSTOC XVIII?

If so, let me know if you need any help. I'm in the Seattle area.

I look forward to attending. I've always wanted to ride Vancouver Island.

I want to go, too, and I've already broached the subject with the wife. Maybe Red can ride over, and we can ride up together... We'll see. There's a lot of time to plan, so that's always a good thing.

I'm going to suggest to my wife that she ride with me but, I'm not sure I can get her to do that. She's gotten very skittish about riding now that she has Emphasyma. I might have to have her drive over or maybe fly in.

But, I'm going come hell or highwater! ;-)

Hmmm...hell I ride in every day. High water will require a boat. I can't afford a boat and farkles, too!

I am on the Disorganization Team, Joe. Glad to hear you are able to come. Thanks for your offer to help. May have to take you up on that. Hope your wife is able to attend as well.

Hope to see you and your wife there, Scott. It's nice to have time to plan ahead, that's for sure. It's going to be a lot of fun!

I haven't ridden Vancouver Island but I have driven it. Absolutely beautiful, from the ferry across from Vancouver to the people I met on the island! I was initially based in U-Vic but moved around to Sidney, Chemainus, Nanaimo, Saanich and so on. There is no chance of me getting back across to Canada to attend this - grrrr!

Similar situation for us, until we finally road it in June this year. I am in awe every time I go there...absolutely stunning. Sorry to hear you will not be able to attend . Our dear friend Keith, from Cornwall, England will be attending. Not shipping his bike over this time, will borrow or rent.
