Like This

I got back to Everett a little after 5 pm on Tuesday.

It was a little over 1900 miles for the Everett, Naches, Klamath Falls, Auburn, Susanville, Madras, Hood River, Everett trip.

We had a blast.

It was wet, windy, warm, cold, sunny, high elevation, low elevation and even a little bit of hail.

I nicked my front tire on something sharp and ended up riding with a little cord showing from Alturus, CA back to Everett. Ordered some new Dunlop Elite 3 tires from Motorcycle Superstore this morning.

I got to ride in a 660 horsepower hot rod, on a boat on a nice lake and on motorcycles with Joe and Tim on some really nice roads in California, Oregon and Washington.

The trickiest riding was leaving Seattle on Wednesday afternoon in the rain. Highway 167 traffic was bumper to bumper for miles with ground fog and water spray coming off the cars. Riding down Yuba Pass in California was a little scary since they had sanded the road and it was curvy and slippery.

I feel very fortunate to live in a place with so many beautiful places to see.
