    Spirit Lake Hwy

    On Saturday, I rode down to Mt. St. Helens. I blasted down on I-5 to Hwy 505 and on to Hwy 504, Spirit Lake Hwy. Thanks to the cloudy weather, there was surprisingly little traffic for a Saturday. I was able to ride the twisty bits at a good clip without being held-up or having to pass many...

    FS 52/Skate Creek Road & Hwy 7

    I took my first ride of the year on Skate Creek Road from Ashford to Packwood on Thursday. The road is nice and clean. The frost heaves and slumps seem a liitle worse than last year though. There is just a little bit of gravel here and there on the Packwood end. It still was a fun ride...

    90 degree Valve Stems

    The place I took mine to sais they made the mistake of not using thread locker compound on an installation. The guy got a complete flat in a few miles. They said they haven't heard of a failure since they used thread locker on their installs per the valve stem instructions. I've got two tire...

    Clearwater Lights Group Buy 2014 (Feb. 1st - Feb. 28th)

    I was thinking the same thing about using the Darlas on the mirror mount because I like the smaller housing but would still like lights mounted higher up on the bike.

    new 2012 in Auburn, WA

    Just in case anyone is interested, I noticed that Hinshaw's has a brand new 2012 on the show room floor. They have it listed at $10,990. This might be a pretty good deal for someone that doesn't need or desire a Gen 3.

    Big Money Rally 2014

    I will only have 1 day off per week while in training through at least mid April. With fitting in some family time, I don't see much riding in the near future except for commuting.

    So there I was...

    Yeah, it was just one of those days. I decided to share since most people here can probably relate. I posted more for the entertainment than anything. And yes, it was still good time spent in the garage with the bike versus doing random tasks around the house!

    Big Money Rally 2014

    I really wanted to try this out this year, but I am starting a new job/career next week and I won't have much riding time. You guys have fun!

    So there I was...

    On Wednesday, I decided it was time to get some maintenance done on my 2008. Within the first few minutes, I already had a problem, I stripped the two fuel tank front mount bolts while trying to remove them. Shit! Some dipshit (me), must have over-tightened them the last time the tank was...

    Seattle Area: Lowered FJR to sit on?

    SeattleTy's FJR is lowered but I think he has a Russel seat on it. It would be worth a shot to contact him and make sure you have a stock seat to try.
