Probably take the RC8. The little 390 doesn't have the required fuel range.

Sounds good. I'll be on my z1000 so we won't be passing by too many gas stations,I've put about 300 miles on it since I bought it and seems like I've been to 6-7 gas stops,maybe not that many but I think I only get 120-140 miles to a tank.

I'll go in May if the weather is nice. Did it once before and it can get a little tedious in places.

Weather will have to be nice,no rain for me,if it's raining and I've picked up my 690 enduro by then I'd go to capital forest for a wet ride.

I'm still wanting to do this. I have about 5-6 more fishing days to fill the boat,then it's 38 hrs to get to Dutch to offload some of the fish and then backload a bunch of stuff to bring to Seattle. I'm hoping to be underway for Seattle sometime the 15th and get into Seattle on the 22nd-23rd. Need to offload a million pounds of Cod which will take 30hrs,clean the boat,bring it through the locks into the lake and put it away. So hopefully by the 27th I'll be ready to get a plan together to ride.

Tentative in. I'm allergic to traffic tickets, so I may join/become the slow group.

I'll keep looking in from time to time for the final set date.

I'll be wide open (pun intended) for any day of the week. One good thing about my job,I'm gone for months at a time,but then I'm home for months at a time and I'm free for anytime. I should be home the 24th and ready to go anytime after the 27th. How much notice does everyone need?

For me,a couple of hours should suffice. I need time to do the bike pre-ride checks and pack some snacks. Any weekday works for me.

If you are thinking a week day pick a Wednesday or Friday, those are the easiest for me to skip.
