    Have a couple of hours before I'm off to Portland to hook up with my nephew and family, thought I'd post a few pics...

    Stopped in to visit Jack in Mesa AZ, where he treated me like a king. Had a great time.
    Thanks Jack!

    Took the opportunity to fix the right turn signal switch which had gotten dirty from the dust storms in Kansas...
    PS. I've never named a bike, but after Kansas I now call the RT "Toto"...

    They don't plow snow in the desert, they plow sand...

    Obligatory shot from the Golden Gate bridge overlook in San Francisco...

    Managed to get a shot (with seagull) from the same spot I took one in March 2011 when I bought the RT.

    And finally... Big surf, high winds and rain where I ended for the night in Oregon yesterday...
    Staying at an awesome motel in Yachat called the Ya'Tel Motel. Can't praise the place or owners enough...

    Great shots Brian!! That ocean looks really inviting! Can hardly wait for the snow to come now...:cry

    Watch yourself, they were calling for a lot of snow in Vancouver this coming week...unless the forecast has changed or is wrong...what would the odds of that be :lol3

    That didn't stay long - the world's cleanest KLX400 needs a new home! Going to divulge details of the 'new bike'?

    It may be this one, can't say for sure...I only had this one 6 months in 1983.
    Found one locally, after searching the country for nearly a year. Never raced, a Sunday Rider.
    Hope to get it home in a week and will post photos of the actual bike as I found it.
