    Looks like Hawk Ridge? Or somewhere in that vicinity? Beautiful wherever it is.
    Cheers,

    This was a pretty enjoyable ride to the top- there's about 10 or 12 miles of narrow blacktop that zigs and zags its way up, nothing difficult. I was using my phone in airplane mode with the OSMand app for navigation, with "altitude" enabled on the display. It was interesting to watch the numbers go up as I made the climb. (Oh the things that amuse us flat-landers! :D)

    Repurpose the flight bag man. New Galfer lines up front too. Got SV1000 calipers but need the adaptors. This thing is modded out the wazoo. :wink:

    The bike, a 2017 650X had 6 k's on it when I picked it up from the dealer in Vancouver. It had just over 17000 when it went into storage back in Vancouver 6 weeks later :D

    Thanks, I'd completely forgotten about it. And it was memorable. Lots of good memories of places and people.

    Hope the crows didn't start un packing your stuff for you :yikes. It's a good ride up there eh.
