With you speeding past our potential customers at breakneck speed, they are less likely to stop.

Speeding motorcycles spoiling pastoral Koksilah Road

I live on Koksilah Road on the west side when heading north not too far from the entrance to the Bright Angel Park.

The road is rural and picturesque and features three dairy farms and as you head north they are on the left hand side.

On the right hand side are houses where folks, children, horses, cows, lambs, chickens, and more live.

I am an avid gardener and was out in my garden over the weekend. I could barely enjoy the weeding and planting experience for all the motorcycles obviously racing and far exceeding the 60 kilometre per hour road limit.

Somewhere, there is a biker book that says something like don’t bother going down the highway, turn left at Koksilah Road and you can go as fast as your motorbike can go all the way down to Allenby Road.

People live here, bikers! Cows produce better milk if they aren’t listening to your whining engines when you are going at top speed. We have some roadside stands along our road where we sell quality cut flowers, art work, plants, eggs, and more. With you speeding past our potential customers at breakneck speed, they are less likely to stop.

I have lived on Koksilah Road for nearly six years and have almost never seen a police car of any description. The 60 km/h signs are kinda sparse.

We are all keen to keep the Cowichan Valley local and beautiful. Motorcycles going at breakneck speed aren’t part of that vision.
