    I have a buddy/customer flying me up next week for a photoshoot....in the summer months he likes to take people out to Bellinger Pass and scare the shit out of them in his Razor side-by-side...I told him I am not interested in doing that this time. I do enjoy going up to Bellinger tho and wondered if Friar or any newer inmates are doing motox bike rentals? Something we could throw on his trailer....as most of you know, the trail up and around is not super technical...I did it back in the day on my wee-strom...but, since I would not need it to be street legal, just looking for something the 450cc range where I can still wear my camera backpack, etc. I have a budget but not looking for a $49 special either....good suspension is important as I have gotten too fat. LOL

    Thanks in advance. Yes, I still have my motorcycle license and good insurance.

    Good luck in finding a bike. Mark H.

    Friar hasn’t been around here for a looooog time.
    Doubt you will find a rental that will allow you to go off of a DOT road.

    Hey good buddy, looks like you had a good time!

    Thanks for the link with the photos of your trip up. Very interesting!

    I was in Seward kayaking with neighbor and fellow ADV'er Vic Aye. First time out in a couple years. Good times!
