Cool Washington weather is GOOD

It appears that this weekend (16th and 17th) the weather will be great!


What say a few of us get together and raise the kickstands???

For a cool and rainy definition of "good," yep. TBH I'd rather be there than in the Phoenix frying pan right about now.

My bud who lives in Seattle took his Z900 around the Kitsap peninsula this weekend, getting video and stills the whole way. Envious, I am.

Yep, but if you're here you have to get there to enjoy.

One of these days we have to meetup. What's say in Yakima at Miner's? The timing may be a bit weird to setup but it can be done. That seems to be about halfway between us.

Put almost 100 miles on today. Friday so I rode my bike to work.

Got 43mpg when I fueled up.

Its because you're missing a side cover. Once you put that back on the extra drag will drop you 5 MPG.
