Back to riding for the spring

Hello all I am new to the forum, digging the bikes out of storage after moving to the Lacey/Oly area and doing some horse trading. Ill now be commuting full time from Olympia to Seattle 5 days/wk....ouch. On the brighter side this commuting will be done on 2 wheels until I get run over by some teenager.

Welcome and that does sound like a bitch of a commute. I hope that's not your work bike, way toooo nice.

Welcome to pnwmoto. Commuting from Oly to Seattle? Man I feel sorry for
you! On the bright side (sort of), since you live in Olympia, you need to be an advocate for lane splitting.

Welcome, nice Bad Momma's Whip for commuting. I commuted from Lacey to Puyallup 6 days a week for almost a year on my Kaw Turbo, rain or shine...and that was before cell phones! Yes, there were a few close calls with Pteradons, but it sure keeps you on your toes.

Definitely not riding the s1000 on the daily, I have a beater st1300 with 78K miles to do the daily on, much more comfortable and much much slower than a turbo'd kawasaki.
