dbmccrohan and I got out for a really nice, social distancing-approved ride in Western Washington: northeast of Monroe and Sultan (Sultan Basin Rd)...even got a bit of practice off-road.

Check out that beautiful, chalk-colored dirt up in the wheel well of my 2018 Versys 300...discovered that once I got back home in Seattle :)

Stay safe out there,

Really nice ride over the weekend with forum member dbmccrohan from the Seattle area to Plain, Washington via HWY 2/Stevens Pass (with a detour along Lake Wenatchee and a bit of dirt riding).

My only sibling/older brother Jason was killed while driving his Toyota truck on the same HWY 2 about 2 1/2 months prior (five miles west of the Stevens Pass summit); he was driving with his wife and their dogs to be the best man in his friend's wedding when they were hit by an oncoming truck.

My brother and I reconnected in the months before his death over a mutual love of motorcycles; in fact many of my Versys' mods [the black 2018 300-X in the photos] were done together in our parent's garage after our dad died in late October 2019.

This particular moto ride was a great way to remember and celebrate him. One of many reasons why I'm so thankful to be out there on two wheels these days.

Clocked about 250 miles round trip. And it was 80+ degrees. In Western Washington. In May. Unheard of!

Spent the last two days rambling around Kitsap, Jefferson, and Mason counties in WA with a good friend and his GS. Toured some excellent and quiet roads near Tahuya ORV park on Thursday. I even managed to get my V650 actually off-road (not just off-pavement) for the first time, doing a short stretch of the easiest 4x4 trail at Tahuya. Will definitely be back for more of it in the future. Today we ventured into the NE corner of the Olympic foothills near Sequim, WA, riding up to an antenna site at about 1700 feet - still safely below the snow level in that relatively dry corner of western WA. Nice network of dirt forest service roads thru sections of recent clear cuts, yielding excellent views of the Olympics, Mt Baker, Rainier, and Puget Sound.
Love it. Looks awesome, can't wait to ride with you guys again (and in this area).
