    Took 14-395-97...all the way up to Yakima, then over to the i-5. Snoqualmie Pass really sucked...like going through a car wash! Mojave desert=amazing!
  2. California-Nevada-Oregon-Vancouver, BC/Stops??

    Coming back from LA tomorrow. Long days put me in 1) Lake Tahoe 2) Bend, OR, then home to Van.

    Any suggestions? I have to arrive back in Vancouver on Sunday latest.

    Looks like I am going to take the coast...so much more scenic. I'm thinking Coos Bay as a first stop (from Vancouver, BC). That's a solid day's riding...Unless you recommend a better spot?

    We'll see....if I have to, I'll order the heated grips....where do the leads run to inside the bars? Do they go to a plug connector?

    Thanks, Paul. I'm assuming to change the oil filter as well, even though it's only been 1500 miles since last change? (i.e. don't want to clean the sludge and keep the same filter).
