    I took the little blue beast for a 190 mile ride on Saturday. I'm still a little tender in places.

    We started and ended at our campsite near Chewelah.

    We stopped to have some lunch at the Roosevelt Grove Of Ancient Cedars north of Nordman, ID.

    Back on the trail and heading back via Sullivan Lake.

    We had just turned off the Sullivan Lake (Metaline Falls) road to the Nordman Road. It was a fantastic day of riding!

    I'm still a little tender after trying to keep up with the blue beast for 190 miles on my KLR, it was a great ride, the fall colors were fantastic.

    You were on a Red/Black Gen 2 KLR! I gave you a wave!

    Friend and I did some late night, light wand shots of my XSR900. Figured I'd share.

    Also, just got my T7. Finally ready to adventure again now that the weather has gone sour.

    With a bit of suspension work the T7 seems like the perfect adventure bike for me. Hope to see one out on a ride sometime. Congrats, very nice!!

    The three wheeler looks new, I assume restored.
    I ended up buying something too. Wasn't planning on it but the price was really, really low, so now I own one. Has a snow plow too. Once I get a top made it will be great for late season around Pierce.

    Suspension is a little light for someone my weight, but it's honestly not bad. If you're not trying to be Pol Tarres you'll be mostly fine on stock. Plus my short little legs would have even more trouble reaching the ground if it didn't sag a little.

    If anyone around here is looking to get a T7 soon I know where one should be soonish.
