Am in complete agreement with you there based on my own
observations while driving up Chuckanut. That blows chunks
about the BMW rider who was forced off the road by a cager.

I've ridden on the coast btw Morro Bay and Brookings on tons
of day rides and road trips. Unfortunately, haven't ridden btw
Brookings and Port Angeles.

OTOH, got to say that the West Cascades Scenic Byway out
of The Dalles to Westfir with the Quartzville/Santiam Hwy loop
thrown in absolutely rocks.

We had to stop at Truck City Truck Stop on Old Hwy 99 out in
Mt. Vernon to use the restrooms, and noticed that they have
the Long Haul Cafe in quonset hut right across from the pumps.
Looks like a good staging area for upcoming rides.
