    Great thread and pics, all! Been heads down on “the project”, so now that it’s done, it’s nice to see what all else folks are up to.

    So here’s the Swedish supermodel (beast?) after a year plus worth of major reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Well worth the effort, I think.

    Various rides over the last few days around the Blue Mountain and Mt Slesse / Vedder areas.

    Salmon cream cheese and grape tomatoes on a bagel. If I wasn’t running Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires, I’d say it was a Michelin fine dining experience....:lol3

    Took a buddy on tour around Chehalis Lake today...we gave his KLR’s new knobbies a nice workout. :lol3

    ... Cold on the highway stretches there and back, but great fast FSR action on arrival, with great scenery as a reward.

    Looking forward to next season, and linking into Harrison West from the top of Chehalis.

    EDIT - a big thanks to @matt.the.ogre for posting his video of the ride and giving me the idea for it. :thumb

    And thanks to @Tytan for posting about Sloquet Hot Springs. Adding that to the "to visit" list ... :ricky

    I don't know how to double or triple like a pic, but this one is really cool! Love that focused and determined look in the eye, out there in the snow.

    From the Sasquatch approximately 2hrs maybe 2hrs 15 min. We left the hot springs around 2:00pm and rolled into the Sasquatch for dinner just after 4:00 then it was a cold dark ride back into the city. The road was in good condition although the first 10K heading North had been recently graded and had a lot of loose marbles on the surface.

    National Forest Service road near Darrington, WA. Lots of great dual sport/adv routes just south of us.

    It’s been cold, grey, and rainy lately here.

    So when it’s sunny and dry, I take out Minion. Even if it’s cold. :lol3

    A few mediocre photos after playing with goofy new camera filters to see how truly goofy they are.

    Yup, they’re goofy. :lol3
