The 2016 Vancouver Motorcycle Show took place January 22 to 24 in Abbotsford, B.C. RidersWest writer and adventure motorcyclist Trevor Hughes was there to capture the action. For a full report, see Hughes' article, Defining the Adventure Motorcycle at the 2016 Vancouver Motorcycle Show.

Here are some photos he brought back with him: 

You need only drop by the DualSport BC booth to find out about how to join an off-road adventure.

There were even those pitching adventure tours, such as well-travelled motorcycle adventurer and author Rene Cormier.

There was a Honda Africa Twin to sit on too.

The Triumph Tiger has beefed up dramatically since the 1970s when Ted Simon took one around the world.

Rene Cormier of Renedian Adventures tells visitors of his African and Mongolian motorcycle trips near his BMW F650GS he took around the world.

BMW has tweaked its tried-and-true adventure fleet, adding new tank covers to their F700GS and F800GS models.
