Just too nice of a day not to ride

Damn! Too nice of a day not to ride around and enjoy the sun shine & mild temps. Bugs are not out yet too, so the bike is still clean ~ double score!!

I went to Port Angeles yesterday...in the rain.

Today is bike-cleaning day.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

And yeah - ride that motherufcker regardless.

It's PNW - if you want riding in the rain, you aint riding.

Got up early to hit the Y. Cars windows were heavily frosted. Didn't want to find the Scrapper so said screw it, threw on the leather and rode in.

The tight twisties just east of the Rowena overlook still has the red gravel along the edges, centerline of lane & centerline of road. Unless you're used to the loose grip-n-slip with the bike, I'd let that one season for a while. The rest of Hwy 30 is in decent shape.

I'm not familiar where Soldier Pass is.

Thanks for the info Jackal. I was referring to 7 Mile Hill Road. I was under the impression that the section of twisty delight climbing up out of the Chenowith area was called Soldier (or Soldier's) Pass.
