I've been through there a few times, usually on my way to Nakusp for events. Pretty, plenty to see/do off the bike if you want, great riding in terms of scenery and roads. 3A to Balfor, East to 31 to Kaslo, North to 31A to New Denver and up 6 to Nakusp, then back South on 6 to Nelson is a nice ~day ride with time to stop and smell the flowers.

Great little town with awesome nearby riding as mentioned. Do yourself a favor and camp at Toad Rock motorcycle campground about 25 minutes north in Balfour. Excellent place to base out of for a few days.

Great place to visit, ride and enjoy the scenery. I've been to Nakusp for a few FJR events and had a great time each trip. Don't forget the hot springs around the area too. Well worth the visit!

We did a WeSTOC rally there a few years ago. Great little town and as others mentioned too many riding opportunities to mention. The various ferry crossings were kinda fun too.
