PDX to Mt. St Helens -- suggestions?

Somewhat new to the area and I don't have a bike out here yet, but I've been feeling the itch for too long and was going to rent something for a day and take a ride up to see Mt. St Helens. Wondering if any of you wonderful folk have suggestions for that ride e.g. which route to take, any good chow along the way, bad roads to avoid, etc.

Also, if you're interested, I might do this trip next week some point, maybe next Sunday?

Thanks in advance!

Roads to St Helens are just opening - Windy Ridge (FR-99 is closed until mid August for repair.
What type of bike are you wanting to rent?

When open - Carson to Windy Ridge is awesome, BUT usually not the best pavement.
Johnston Ridge is open (West Side of St Helens) just stay off of I-5 and you can have fun getting there.

Enjoy

I know there's a few rental spots around, but I'm thinking I'll just stick with Eagle Rider in Milwaulkie because I used them in Denver before (even though the experience kind of sucked). They have a Tiger 800 (not sure the exact option code) and a BMW R1200GS ($60/day more). Was thinking about the BMW because it should have a radio and I rode an RT once that was very, very comfortable and fun.
