Awesome, glad to hear it. Yea that last little section can be tricky for sure, luckily it's not too far from the falls.

Did you end up finding this place? :)

Did an excellent ride yesterday up Wesley Ridge from Whiskey Creek. The trail gains some nice elevation with several killer view points overlooking the ocean to the north, Cameron Lake to the south, and Horne Lake to the west. The trail was a mixture of double and single track with some steep technical climbs and tight tree sections in between. Lots of rocks and roots and the Sur Ron ate it all up. Overall distance was around 40km, with ~1200m elevation gain. Made it back with 30% battery remaining which was surprising given the elevation gain and that we were on the trails for over 6 hours. Also I was riding with some big gas bikes on this one and the Sur Ron was able to hang no problem. Really happy with how the bike is performing overall.

Parts update - swapped my front forks for some Fox 40s, as well as swapped out a Bridgestone Battlecross X30 front tire, and Maxxis Maxxcross IT rear tire. Running standard innertubes for now but I think I'm going to go tubeless at some point. The new tires have improved traction considerably and the fork is much more tunable and should be longer lasting.

Oh and I swapped back to the straight bars and think I actually prefer them even though everyone seems to run risers on this bike.

Here are some shots of the new setup overlooking Port Alberni from the south.

You will find much, much better spots off the FSRs. The further you can get from the main roads the less you will be bothered. Most of the south island is private land.
