Impressions after a 300 mile day in the Northern Cascades

2016 650 LT. In one day, riding out from Seattle at 6 am and navigating through city streets, following random gravel roads, cruising at 75 on the I-5, and following the amazing Hwy 20 over the Northern Cascades, I am amazed at how good this little bike did in every single one of those situations. I never once felt I didn't have enough or too much of anything. Mostly I just kept thinking what an amazing bike to take on these amazing roads on this nice sunny day.

Ah yes...........the North Cascade Loop. A great ride. I've never ridden it with the Versys. Used a Suzuki C50 and a Vulcan 1500 a number of times though.

I've ridden it on a Bandit 1200S as well as on a KLR.

GOOD ride!
