A friend and I have Versys's and did a great ride down the coast to the Bay area. We are in Portland and love riding through the Columbia River Gorge. The Historic HWY along the Sandy River is great up to Crown Point and Multnomah Falls. . . So many good rides. Welcome!
Congratulations, I'm very excited for you man! I lived in the Gorge region, North Cascades and PDX for several years. Rainforest, desert, snow-capped mountains, and ocean all roughly a 1-2 hour drive/ride from each other. It's possibly the coolest all-around place in the lower 48. I miss it!
