Where I live, I have not succumbed to buy a Discover Pass. If HB1192 and 1262 gain traction, that may change. In any event, I will write and ask for support of SB5627.

Having glanced over the route, I'm pleased that it omits some of my favorite Idaho places, and includes some that I don't care to revisit.

Washington motorcycles had titles in the '60's, that I'm sure of, and I suspect long before that too. No title: just say no in my opinion.

Thanks for the link Beezer. I'm not convinced any metal will work harden. It will fatigue and crack however. I'm not a metallurgist, so rather than prove my ignorance, I'll shut up.
