Hi all!

Just getting around to joining the forum. Bought a leftover 2016 650 in September, and have been getting some winter, and lots of early spring rides in. Loving the bike, and wanted to say hi. Pic is on the way home from the dealer in Oregon, we stopped for dinner.

Let me know if you decide to do some Eastern Washington/Northern Idaho travel; Versys types are few and far between here in the Inland Northwest...

I love riding out that way, the sightlines and the views are amazing! Usually a weekend trip for me though, I'm about an hour north of PDX. But, you'll be hearing from me, thanks for the offer, and if you head this way, let me know!

Hmm... I have the same 2016 model that was a leftover, the same color, I live about an hour north of Portland. How the heck have I not seen you riding around?

I'm usually riding north and east from here, where do you normally ride?

South and West... Lol. Guess that explains it

I ride the back roads south of Centralia out towards the coast allot. Try to stay out of traffic as best I can.

We live near cougar, and so we head up around the forest service roads and the back ways to Mt Adams and Ranier.

Has FS21 been repaired yet? I like to berry pick up there but it's too far around to come in the back way.

FS 25 Has been repaired, still closed to snow at the moment though. I'm not sure about FS 21, I either don't know that road, or know it by a different name.

It's one of the roads coming from Randle that connects to FS25. FS21 and FS23 were both wiped out by the Cispus River a couple years ago. It really makes for a long detour with them out of commission.

I had no idea! I thought it was FS 25 all the way to Randle, and haven't been that way in a couple of years.
