WA, up north of Longview. Been riding all winter, whenever it didn't rain. Mostly back roads around this area, but 2 weeks ago rode over to Astoria, Seaside, back into Portland, then north to home. Poor planning on my part....hit Portland at 4 in the afternoon on a Monday.....over 2 hours to get out of bumper to bumper traffic. Was on my Nomad that day, not my Shadow. Won't make that mistake again.

Gonna be going to the Hell's Canyon Rally in Baker City, OR, July 12 - 16. Week after that, going thru OR to visit folks in CA. Then over to AZ, NM, TX...then turn around and come home. About 3 wks of riding. Can't wait!

Try to avoid using the words, "dying to do" when referring to motorcycles.

I am, however, 'looking forward' to another 8 months of the twisties up here in the Rockies -- starting tomorrow.

Will keep you posted -- or lightly toasted.

Dress for the slide not the ride

that place is truly heaven on earth to me. the water spring and tree at the top of the hill...man.
a while back i did the freeride comp.
would love to go back with a regular board on the back of my shadow and shred a few runs
no longer into the downhill speed junkie thing concrete really hurts at 60+ mph
oh ya theres a beautiful winery at the bottom of said road on the columbia river. why do i live in seattle?!
